To insert an image from into a forum post use the "Insert/edit image" icon in the HTML editor toolbar:

  1. Add a "subject" title to your forum message posting
  2. In the "Message" box, add your text for your message
  3. Click the mouse to place the blinking cursor in the location where you'd like to place the image,
  4. Click the insert image icon
  5. A window will pop-up to insert the image.
  6. You can then paste in the web address (URL) directly to an image at the very top (the URL must end in .jpg, .gif, or .png) or click the "Find or upload and image..." button.

    1. If you click the "Find or upload an image..." button you will need to use the file picker to select the image file.
  7. You must put something in the 'Image Description' box - this should be something for a viewer who cannot see the image - such as "picture of the house" or whatever the image is.
  8. Click the "Insert" button and the image will appear in your page.
  9. You can click on the image and grab a corner of the image to resize it to the size you'd like. It is not recommended to resize the image to a larger size than it is - it will become distorted.
  10. Save your changes and you have inserted an image.
