Have you resized them, Danny? The file size from the camera is too big to upload onto TP. You need to reduce them to about a 25%, you can do this in Paint if you haven't got imaging software.

When you say "nothing happens" do you mean you get as far as attempting to attach the .jpg image and it won't load? Because if so, it's probably too big.

I hope the following will help Angela.
I can`t believe I`m actually offering to help people show photos. It took me ages to learn.

1 Scroll down in the Reply window to Manage attachments

2 Click on Browse

3 Select picture

4 Open selected [link will then appear in Browse slot]

5 Upload

6 Make sure the link shows above or below `attachment key`

7 Close Browse window

8 See link underneath `Manage attachment`

9 Put cursor into `reply window`

10 Scroll up to paper clip and click on link.

Cross fingers. :)

Thankyou so much.
I have got the photos from camera into document in my pictures.
I get to the bit about upload in the manage attachments and nothing happens,it says uploading files please wait but nothing happens.If it is because my pictures are too large how do I make them smaller.

Danny, go to Programmes, Accessories, Paint.

Open your photo in paint, then reduce both height and width to about a quarter. Then save again under another name, eg Pic 1 small.

Then try to attach the smaller version. It should work.

Well done Danny!:)

That's absolutely fine, but next time maybe try reducing it to 20%? Makes it easier to view.

It's a bit trial and error on sizing, but now you've got the hang of it, you can play around!

I love the Clivea (the orange flowering plant) - we have that flowering in our porch & conservatory - but on a latitude with Northumbria - not outside as you do - & I LOVE the old car ??? old VW??

Next question,I`ve just taken quite a few photos of different plants etc.Can I put more than one photo on a page.

I also want to know what these plants are,bear in mind that my horticultural expertise is on a par with my cooking,I recognise a rose and a daffodil!!!

Sue,the care is a split screen morris minor.


Thankyou.

My goodness, you're an expert!:)

I love the flowers, are they all blooming in your garden just now? Mine's still pretty bare, but I blame the rabbits for that!
