How to insert a picture or a chart?

Postby JMC » Fri Mar 23, 2012 1:54 pm

A Friend of mine had sent me a picture via e-mail. I wanted to reproduce it in one of my posts by just making copy + paste. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful!
Does anyone knows how to proceed?
Thanks in advance. JMC

Don – Even though my computer is not as old as I am, it's a stubborn animal which doesn't want to accept the instructions suggested!

Never mind, next time I shall try to make a drawing myself!

Thanks again for having tried to help me and best regards – JMC

You must create your post or reply using 'Full Editor'. That is where you can add smileys or colour to you text.

Scroll down to where you see 'Filename' to the left and click 'Choose file'
That will open a window which will enable you to choose the picture from wherever you have saved it. 'My Pictures' or wherever.

Click Open anf your file name will appear next the the 'Choose File' box
Then click 'Add the file' which is just below and to the right

A small window will open showing the file copy progress. When that has closed you can submit your message with the picture.

You can add a caption or a note to your picture.

Doug – Thanks for trying to educate me in the use of PC specialties!

I did exactly what you suggested (which I believe is not different from what Don had indicated) and

1. I received a message stating "ERROR …., contact …(then message disappeared)"!

2. When I tried to "preview", nothing was shown!

So now, I am wondering whether you will be able to see the file I wanted to attach!

Thank you again and regards.

Yes there are two copies of a Word document which i can open and see the picture.

As you attached .doc files they don't appear directly in the post which is why you didn't see it in the preview. But if you had attached the original picture (.jpg ot .tif etc) it would have shown in the post itself.

Thank you very much Doug – indeed, I always believed in miracles! In addition, one of my favourites maxims is "Un travail opiniâtre vient à bout de tout – Virgile" (I am sure you understand French).

I shall make another trial just to see whether I manage to include the picture directly under the message.

Regards.

Doug – I tried to insert a JPEG file and I got following message!
I really don't understand, but I feel you should not loose more time on this subject. The necessity to include a file doesn't occur very often.
Anyhow, thanks again.

Sorry, the error message means nothing to me. Don may be able to explain.

JMC,
I have been trying to do this for ages without any joy.This may help. It did me. Although I am not aware of any refinements, it works for me.
These are the steps I recorded;

1. Select NEW TOPIC.
2. Enter SUBJECT TITLE.
3. Type your message in the normal manner.
4. UPLOAD ATTACHMENT.
5. BROWSE
6. Select your picture.
7. ADD THE FILE.
8.UPLOAD ATTACHMENT.
9. PLACE ON LINE
10. The text indicating the picture wll appear in your message box.
11. PREVIEW
12. Picture shoul appear in the message box alomg with any text entered.
Regards,
Ron.
Ron

Thank you Ron for your message and for taking the time to solve this naughty problem!

I tried to follow your instructions and unfortunately I was not successful?

- Your N° 4 "UPLOAD ATTACHMENT" was not "active", therefore I could no longer follow your procedure.

- I then tried to come back to Doug's instructions, and once more I got the "ERROR" message.

However, it would seem that the file is attached but does not appear directly in my message.

So unless, the Webmaster of Don's site can find what is wrong, I suggest we let it stand that way.

Anyhow, thanks again Ron for your help and best regards - JMC

Hi JMC,
All very disappointing. It is very strange though why your "upload attachment" icon does nothing. When clicked it should open up a block containing "Filename" and "File comment", thereby allowing you to "browse" and "add this file" to proceed. Presumably it is exactly the same when posting in the usual manner?

One for the boffins here!!!!

kind regards,
Ron.
Ron
