    Third icon from the right. The one that looks like a picture frame.

    From the Cafe's FAQ...

    Look forward to seeing your build.

    A bunch of stuff with four strings

    It's not possible to upload from computer. You can select the file but the upload file does not show and no error messages

    This quickie video shows how I add a picture to my posts here, using a Windows computer and Chrome browser. I don't know if it's the 'right' method or not, but it seems to work for me... YMMV. Although this method is technically an "Insert Image" rather than an "Attachment". Here's the process:

    (or direct link)

    Using the above method, I added this "test" picture to this post - you can click it to make it larger:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	test-upload.jpg 
Views:	10 
Size:	65.4 KB

    I seem to vaguely recall something about having to post the message within one hour of uploading the picture, otherwise the picture disappears and you have to re-select and re-upload the picture... That might be mentioned somewhere in the FAQ's which I confess I haven't read in their entirety for quite some time...

    There are a couple of ways. The way I do it, from a PC browswer is this:

    1. Start a new message, it can be a Reply or a New Post.

    2. Type in some text.

    3. Click on the Go Advanced button on the bottom right side of the reply window

    4. Go down to the Manage Attachments button

    5. A window will pop up with all of the image files you have uploaded (assuming you have)

    6. Click on the Add Files button then the Browse button

    7. Select the file you want to upload then click Upload

    8. When the thumbnail appears in the lower bottom corner of that window click on Done.

    9. Then you can either Preview the Message or Submit the Message.

    There are other ways but this way you have the option of reusing an image you previously posted.
