    I've forgotten how to post a photo

    I tried using a photo I had posted on facebook but when you press the send button it just says {IMG}

    Can someone please refresh my addled brain. Is it because I'm using an image from facebook?

    Might have to download the photos to my desktop

    Thanks folks

    I use various different methods, depending on where the photo is stored.

    Sometimes I just find a pic (e.g. a recipe) online, and copy and paste it into my post, by right clicking the image, selecting copy, placing the mouse/cursor back in the right place in my forum reply, and then pasting.
    Sometimes I use a photo I have saved to postimage.com and use the link that postimage supplies for forums. That is also a simple cut and paste.
    Other times I have the pic saved to my computer, and use the Upload a File button below the post.

    These things seem to work on all the devices I use (phone tablet and laptop), but I very rarely use the Image button on the top of the Reply box, since that just asks for a URL
