i managed to upload some images i want to post on italiangenealogy.com.i resized them to thumbnail(150x112)as the do not resize option was the reason my images exceeded the 2mb size limit.now i need to transfer these 4 images to my recent post.since this is a recent post,not a brand new post,can i transfer the images?i see no option to do this.if i'm on the actual post that i want to upload these images to,what do i do???thanks

i'm at a total loss as to how to post images on this site.i tried the postimage option as suggested.no idea how to transfer the images i uploaded there to this site.i see no thumbnails/upload options as i was told i would.and after trying to upload directly from my pc,the images are all over 2mb(whatever that is)and too large to be uploaded.this is all beyond me.easier to send any documents i need looked at or translated/deciphered by email attachment.

You must upload the file to Postimage and post here the "direct link", such as:

Go to http:\\postimage.org

Browse to find your file then be sure to set "Do not resize..." and Family Safe, as shown here:

(click thumbnail to expand)

Click Upload button. On the next page, scroll down to find the links. Livio likes the Direct Link, I prefer "Thumbnail for forums (1)". Either way, click the "Copy to clipboard" button alongside the link of your choice.

Now, come back to your forum post and either type Ctrl-V or right-click your mouse and click Paste to paste the link into your message. After you post your message, the image will appear in place of the link.

thanks for all the suggestions.i'll stick to sending out any documents i have by email attachment.no idea how this"copy and paste'option works-or what it is.way beyond my expertise at 65 lol.right click this,left click that.etc.thanks again for all the suggestions,but i think i'll stick with what i know.these documents are simply 8.5x11 inches,and size should not be an issue when simply trying to upload them to a posting.no problem sending them to anyone as attachments.shouldnt have to go to outside sites like"postimage"and play around with trying to move images from point a to point b.
