      Hi,

      It's not clear to me how to post pictures on a message placed to the board. Do they have to be already published on the Web? I've got some photos I took years ago of what looks like a death mask, that I think it'd be interesting to place along the explanation. Couldn't I just upload them from my desktop? Or copy and paste them directly onto the message? Let me know. Thanks

        Hi Wesley,

        Welcome to the message board!

        If posting an image found on the Internet:
        copy image link>create post at message board>click Img option found above posting box>paste image link>click Img option again>submit
        Your image will now appear within your post.

        If posting one of your own images:
        upload your image to an image hosting site>copy image link supplied at hosting site>create post at message board>click Img option found above posting box>paste image link>click Img option again>submit
        Your image will now appear within your post.

        You may also choose to post your images as a direct link by copying the image link provided at the hosting site and then pasting within your post at the message board.

        In describing a death mask, I am unsure of the nature of the images you are considering posting. Please be aware that Paul's message board is a multicultural, family environment comprised of members of all ages. With this thought in mind, please use discretion and post accordingly.

        Should you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask within this thread or via private message.

          Hi, Anita.
          Thanks for your prompt reply. However,
          it didn't really answer my query: how can
          I upload a picture from my own desktop.
          In other words, without a 'hosting site,'
          which would be ideal but it's not the case.
          As for the content of the picture, there's no
          cause for concern: it's a face mask, not at
          scary to anyone, including kids.
          Please let me know.
          Thanks

            Hi Wesley,

            Currently, images cannot be uploaded to the message board directly from your device, one must employ the use of a hosting site. Direct uploading is on the suggestion wish list, so hopefully a feature in the near future.
