    How to insert image

    Iím having trouble inserting a picture, perhaps someone smarter than I could explain whatís up.
    When I highlight the picture image on the tool bar the background goes blurry while the picture is downloading, once completed the screen remains blurry I see no way of continuing with the post.
    Iím pretty sure Iím doing something wrong but what?

    Using a third party hosting service works well.

    Imgur is about as easy as it gets, the pictures are high quality when posted and it's free.

    Steer clear of Photobucket. -Al

    Hokayyy..... a Luddite perspective

    I take a pixture with my phone, typically just a snapshot when someone asks "how do you?"....

    Then I plug my phone into my laptop and it goes 'ding' and shows me some options to click on......and I shift my phone pictures onto my computer by "creating a file" which I name something creative like "phone pix 7/10/19" so now the image(s) is(are) quote 'on my computer'

    OR...

    I take a pic on my phone and email it to myself, then I open the email, right clik the pic and do 'save image as'....... and again, this makes the image "on my computer"

    Now on BRC I klik the icon that's kinda square like a tacked up blanket that says "insert image"

    When I klik on "insert image" it gives me the option of "from computer" and "choose file" so I go there, pick my pic and dubble-click and

    voilaahhhhh

    I just went and looked at that image (which I snapped recently to show my ultra-sophisticated $39.99 drive motor) and noticed the lead slugs.... those are in'tirely disconnected from the other stuff in the pic. They are 375gr air rifle slugs. For shooting big game with a pellet gun

    I've got the charged air rifle in the shop, with a jammed broken bolt...... I've been tasked with fixing it. It's a liddle spooky to start unassembling a gun with 4000psi inside of it.......so I'm building a bleeder fitting before just unscrewing stuff willy-nilly LOL!

    The more the pixels are compressed and then reorganized, the more the detail suffers. Not that details are always important, as this pic I grabbed off my phone shows.
