Photos are welcome anywhere you see fit, including your introductory thread where we can see what ya got.

Also, as a new member you automatically get your own Photo Gallery. Just click on the Photo Gallery link at the top of this page and then click on the link for "My Gallery" at the left side of the page or the link labeled "Upload Photos" if you have pictures ready to go.

There are two ways to post pictures in a thread. One is to upload the photo to your gallery, then click on its thumbnail to enlarge it, then right click on your mouse and select "copy image location". Then, in the post you are writing, put your cursor where you want the picture to go, click on the yellow "mountain" icon at the top of the editing screen, and then right click your mouse and select "paste". This will insert a full size pic into your post.

Second way...when you are writing a post, scroll down from the editing screen and you will see a box marked "Manage Attachments". Click on it and follow the instructions. This will place a thumbnail picture at the bottom of your post which can be clicked by the viewer to enlarge. If you pic does not show up, it probably means it was too large and you need to shrink it down. I size my pictures at about 4"x6" at 85-90 dpi.

Hope that gets you started. You can also use the search function at the top of the page and find more detailed info on how to upload pictures.
Always learning...and sharing what I've learned.
