Putting a photo on Pprune

Question: Many years ago I used Photobucket as an image hosting website for putting photos on PPRuNe. Had no problems. Photobucket is not free anymore although the cost is minimal. But Photo bucket seems awfully complicated and it lost me. Recently I have pored through PPRuNe advice and FAQ on the subject but confess I am thoroughly confused. Do PPRuNe readers recommend sticking with Photobucket or can recommend something less complicated?

Would greatly appreciate clear and concise advice on putting photos on PPRuNe allowing for the fact that my brain computing power is not as fast as I would like.

Centaurus,

So would I. I have tried copying photos onto Word documents and then pasting on PPRuNe, the words paste OK but not the image. I would welcome some clear and precise instructions

I think PPRuNe allows you to upload photos directly to it's system. Just use the photo icon in the message editor. It'll ask you to upload a pic then it'll embed it in the post.

I'm still using Photobucket since i'm used to this already. But it'll be a great addition to PPRuNe for sure

Centuraus, click on the box to the right of the smiley face in the header bar, a box with instructions will open and is all self explanatory. One yellow caption will show "Brouse your device" and you can upload direct from your computer.

Bax,

Wonderful, it reminds me of when I used to fly a Tiger Moth.

Centaurus. You are a genius and a scholar (not to mention a gentleman) Now all I have to do is remember how to do this.

cheers

Now you've worked out how to post photos can you please keep them relatively low resolution? Other wise the page gets distorted - or I need to buy a bigger screen..........

I think you mean size. Not happening here. That mossie above has a width 1582 pixels, but Prune is scaling it down as I reduce the width of the PC browser window (the above is also scaling nicely on Android). There's no point in posting a pic that's 4000 pixels wide, but otherwise, I don't think there's a problem with the new Prune displaying pictures, whatever size they are.
