TORn Image Posting Guide

Posting an Image using Advanced Editor
from your harddrive into the body of your post


My computer is a PC and I use Firefox as a browser.
If you use a Mac or another browser, your interface may look different than my screen shots below.
I'm not a computer geek. These tactics work for me.
Depending on your computer or your settings, they might or might not work for you.



I have an image on my harddrive...


it's the right size and...

I want to post it by using the Advanced Editor

Open a compose window.

Find the Attachment commands under the lower, left corner of your compose window. Click: Browse

Using the popup File Upload window, find the image on your harddrive. Click: Open

Tick the Inline option.

Click: Upload attachment


Upload as many images as you want.

Note how one image does not have Inline ticked.

You can do it now or you can untick an image.

Click in your compose window so you get a writing prompt.

Alternately, hit the space bar a few times and highlight the spaces - this is a trick some people use to override glitches)

Click the image icon in the tool tray above the compose window.

If this icon doesn't seem to be active (useable), try putting a few black spaces in the compose window and highlighting them.

You'll get a pop up window.

If you have attached images to your post and ticked them as Inline, the window looks like this.

Note that the default tick is for Image Location which shows a field to insert an url address into.

If you have attached images to your post but not ticked any as Inline, the window will look like this.

If you want to put any or all your attached images in the post, you'll need to close this popup window and tick them now.

Tick: Inline Image.

Now you can see the images you had previously ticked as: Inline.

The image, Rivendell, shown in the image list a few rows up, does not appear in this popup window because Inline was not ticked.

Tick the image you want to insert in the compose window.

Click: Submit

The image should appear in your compose window and you can move it just like text.

Bump it up and down with your enter/backspace buttons or cut and paste it into a different location in your compose window.

Align commands: left, center, right... appear to work in the compose window but not in preview.

You can select the image and hit indent and make it indent, however.

When you hit: Post, any image ticked as Inline and not inserted into the Post Compose Window, will be discarded.

Any image not ticked as Inline will be uploaded as an attachment to the post. It will be visible when someone clicks on the attachment link
