    We Can't Upload Images

    Post  Seashore on Sun Nov 16, 2014 5:19 am

    Are any changes of capabilities for The Mists of Avalon possible at this point in time?

    At present we can only post images that have a URL, correct?

    When discussing a YouTube video, I find it helpful to be able to pause the video, take a screen shot, sometimes highlight it with red arrows in Paint, save the image on my computer, and then upload it so that I can post it in a thread.

    Would it be possible for us to add the capability of uploading images?

    Mercurial is not around to answer this question. Try sending him an email and perhaps he'll respond.

    You're talking about a private message here on the forum, right?

    I just idly clicked on "THE LISTS OF AVALON" and noticed that there is an URL for "Free Image Hosting" - imageshack.us.

    I guess we can upload to it and then post the image via. the URL.

    Has anyone used it?

    I see now it's not too hard to use.

    Here are some screenshots illustrating the steps:

    1.

    2.

    3.

    4.

    From there we use the other icon to post the image.

    You're welcome, Carol.

    When I first saw what it said in "THE LISTS," I thought we had to go there and sign up!
