Is this still the preferred method? I've just been using the "Attachments and other options" function under the text entry box which affords no option to place images and simply tags them at the bottom of a post.

This outlined method from 2009 is a bit drawn out and disjointed.  It is very clunky but it does work.

I used to use a different forum that had excellent control over placement of uploaded images inline in posts simply be checking a checkbox.

Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Hard to know what is recommended, to be honest.  I normally upload from Picasa, then insert the relevant URL in an [ IMG ] ... [ /IMG ] element, but you can also use
Code: [Select]
http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/imagehost/ and then just paste the proffered BB code.  However, this won't automatically resize the image for you, so you may need to add (e.g.), " width=640" in the opening [ IMG ] tag.  The following is an example of the latter technique, with width=320

Hmm. Code editing to place images in a forum post in 2018. :(

Yousef/Admin - can we get the site to actually upload and host images. I wanted to share an image, and I really can't be bothered to fanny around uploading it to a third party hosting site, before adding links, etc. etc.

There has to be a quicker and easier way and I'm sure it would encourage more users to post pictures.

Will try and figure out AGAIN how to post on this site.
What exactly is the problem, UF ?  To attach an image to this reply, I first click on Attachments and other options, then browse for the image I want to attach, and finally click on "Post".  Up to four seven images can be attached to any one post.  Alternatively, if the images are already online somewhere, all that is needed is to click on the "Insert Image" icon () and then insert the image URL between the opening and closing [IMG] tags, optionally specifying an attribute 'width=<whatever>' in the opening tag.

Photos may need to be resized. Up to 7 per post now Phil. Shame there isn't an easy post inline option.

I use Fotosizer. Take photos off my phone. Crop image if desired. Then use fotosizer to resize images to 90% maintaining aspect ratio. This is the process I needed to use on the previous forum system image requirements. It may not still be required under the current forum image requirements, but I've continued the process anyway.

Not necessary for attachments, Livo — the "Welcome involute" above is 2835 px square, which was automatically resized by the forum software when uploaded as attachment.

Many thanks —original corrected.

I still use Picasa for all non-mission-critical stuff — wonderful product, killed by Google for no known reason.  And Photoshop CC 2020 if it's mission-critical.
