How to Post a Photo on 356Talk

When making a post on 356Talk, below the large white "Message body" text window and below the "Submit" button is the "Upload Attachment" area.

Click the "Browse" button to the right of the "Filename" box.

Browse your computer's hard drive and select the photo file you want to post. After you select it, that file name will show in the "Filename" box.

Click the "Add the file" button just below and to the right of "Browse".

If you wish, enter a text caption for the photo in the "File comment" text box.

For any photo file you can select "Place inline", meaning it will be placed in the photo wherever you place the text entry cursor.

You can "Preview" your post, with photo, by clicking "Preview", or click the "Submit" button to make the post.

NOTE: there is a maximum photo file size of a bit more than 1 Mb. If your photo file is much larger than 1Mb you will need to reduce it. There are many ways to do that. Google "resize photo file" to learn how.
