How do I Show Screenshots in Posts?
« on: July 11, 2016, 01:43:07 AM »
I got a screenshot recently that I want to post in a thread, but nothing I do seems to let me show the image as part of my post, and the file size is too large to add as an attachment. How do I get the picture to show in my post without others having to click a link?

Below the main text entry box of a post their is an attachment option.
If you attach an image it will show up bellow your post like so...

Ah, thanks. I tried doing that, but it said the file size was too large.

Edit: found the problem. Somehow I managed to convert my harmless little JPEG screenshot into a 2.80 MB PNG monstrosity. In other words: never attempt to upload screenshots before consuming coffee.

must pause until it returns
