Perhaps the pictures are too large and that is why you are having trouble....

I sometimes run into trouble because I don't make the pictures small enough. There is a size limit for the files. Paint.Net, the free image editing software that I use, tells me how big the file is going to be as I'm saving it.

I'm including screenshots of the relevant windows for adding attachments to posts.

Step One:Click the Attachments button.
Click image for larger version

Name:	Button.jpg
Views:	32
Size:	47.9 KB
ID:	45093


Step Two: Here you specify where the pictures are at on your computer. I circled the size limit for the *.jpg format. Click image for larger version

Name:	Upload Window.jpg
Views:	37
Size:	36.6 KB
ID:	45092

If your files are too large, you'll get an error that looks something like this. Click image for larger version

Name:	UploadError.png
Views:	51
Size:	4.9 KB
ID:	45094

Once your files are uploaded, you can put them anywhere in your post that you want to by clicking the attachment button again and choosing your image from the list.

If this doesn't help, could you copy out any error messages you're getting?

Just thought I would let you all know that NO I haven't been able to post my pictures of my FO's... How hard can it be? .... I think I need to get someone to show me and then I will probably so embarrassed at how easy it is! I am so envious of you all when I see all your lovely pictures of the incredible things that you make...I WILL do this I promise xx

You could also get a photobucket account. www.photobucket.com

you can upload all the pics you want there and use them in here. Below each image you add on photobucket will be 4 link options. Select the last one, IMG Code, by just clicking on the word "IMG code" it will copy the link for you.

Then come here in another window, so you can go back and forth if you have more than one picture to show. When you are done telling us about your FO, and want to add the picture, just paste the copied link into the message... If you have more pictures to add, go back to the other window that has photobucket open, and select the IMG code for the new picture. And come back here and paste it in to the message...

it will look like this when you type it into the text box...

hey guys, I just made this really cute Mitten. I used worsted weight yarn, in a pretty red.

But when you post it to the forum it will show up like this...

If the image is too big the KH forum will automatically resize it for you, and save you the hassle.

You can also use photobucket to make photoalbums online. Easy to share pictures with friends and family over a distance. You just send them a link to the album.

If you need help with this or want some screen caps, feel free to PM me. I hope this is helpful.

You need to reduce the size of any photo to appx 800x600 or smaller to keep the file size down first of all. You can do that with software on your computer or use one of these -

Shrink Pictures Online
Resize to Mail

Free software you can download
Picasa (free)

Instructions were given below on how to attach them. If you need more help please ask.
