Hi all, I have enabled a feature that allows you to upload ten photo's to each post. Below is a quick guide on how to upload your photo's to the forum.

Step 1: Create a new post/topic

Step 2: You will see a new section called "Upload attachment". Using this option, browse on your computer to the location of the photo you wish to upload. You will only be allowed to upload one photo at a time. I suggest the photo type be a "JPEG" format.

Step 3: Once you have uploaded all your photo's. Browse to the section called "Attachments". Select the photo you want to add to the topic and click "Place Inline". Please note that the photo you click on will be the first photo in the topic by default. The second photo you click on will be come the second and so on.

Step 4: The body of your topic should look like the below assuming you haven't written any thing yet.

Step 5: If you want to place your text above the first or any photo. Move the cursor to the beginning of the photo tag and then type your comment and press enter. You comment will appear on the line that the photo tag was on and the photo tag it's self will move to the next line.

Just a reminder to anyone posting photos to the IMM, no need to use photobucket anymore.

Hi I have tried to upload a few photos but didnt get past the 1st one. It says that the file is too big at 3.90mb and the max is 2mb. The image is a jpeg. Is it something i am doing wrong i wonder? I have followed the instructions on the uploading but no joy. Perhaps you might let me know if i am doing something wrong.
Thanks
John.

Just reduce the size of the file to below 2mb.

Hi i resized the photo to 2mb and tried to upload it and the message this time said
"sorry the board attachment quota has been reached". What does this message mean? Is it me or the site?
