    3 Methods for Posting Pictures

    This will provide three methods for posting pictures that appear in the thread. Both of these methods will assume you are on the full site on a computer. If you are reading this on a phone, the first step for following these methods is to find a computer. The first method will use the site's attachment system.

    When you start a new thread, you should be in advanced mode. If you are editing your post or replying to a post, you should see a button at the bottom right of the edit window that is labeled "Go Advanced." Clicking that will put you in edit mode. Click on the attachment mode to bring up the attachment panel in a new window or tab.
