Richard, I've just been posting them directly from my computer.

Go to Attachments and other options just below the input box, and click on the + sign.

There's a box under attach that says browse...

So you browse... find your photo... and upload it. That's it!

Did all that, it says the file size so I know its attached but when I hit post, nothing happens, just a white screen

It seems to work for me.  Maybe try it from a different web browser?  I was using Firefox.

It sounds like it has something to do with some of the settings on your computer? I know I go to some sites, and I cannot see the pictures even though other people can. Clearing my cache tends to help.

Found the answer, when i tried Firefox just a blank white screen, chrome said photos to large, so took new photos on the smallest setting on the camera, still said to big. So next I take photos with the phone and that worked, so buggered if I know.....

I increased the maximum allowable photo size dramatically. The server will now accept file sizes of up to about 6 Mb and resize them for display on the forum.

Thanks Joseph, the smallest setting on my camera was still too big to load, I'll have to test drive it now.
