    Your picture file size may be too big. You will need to use photo software to downsize it.

    Maximum size is 2200x1650.

    Also need to use Go Advanced to attach an image. Then click on the image icon on the top toolbar and select from downloaded images on your computer (or copy and paste a URL).

    John I use https://postimages.org/ for posting pictures here.

    I download the image from my notebook/smartphone straight to Postimage then copy the link they create into my post. You have to press the picture symbol first or paste it into the middle of [img][/img] for it to show up. I'm useless at explaining things so if you have a problem let me know.

    So your picture sizes are good. Hmmm? Do you use a pop up blocker, if so maybe try disabling it. Is it saved in a suitable format e.g. .jpg? Perhaps send me the pic and I will try it if you like.

    John, are you saying if you Go Advanced, and click the Insert Image icon in the toolbar, you don't see this?
