    Step by step tutorial for doing this:
    - placing an image anywhere you want in your posting
    - previewing your posting with that image


    Let's say I want to have a posting with the following two lines:

    Hello

    Cheers

    And let's say that I want an image posted between those two lines and that I want to preview my posting with that image before posting.

    That image is, for example, on my computer, here:
    C:\W_2009_08_11_1.gif

    First I type those two lines; see next posting (with screenshot).
    But I don't yet submit my posting !

    As I said, I have not yet submitted the posting, because I want an image between those two lines.

    So what to do now?

    I scroll down to Additional Options : Manage Attachments

    I click on Manage Attachments.

    A new window pops up.

    I browse to the place on my computer where my image is placed.
    (remember that that was: C:\W_2009_08_11_1.gif )

    (Please note : I use the Dutch version of Windows.
    The Dutch word "Bladeren" means in English "Browse")

    When the image is uploaded in a few seconds to the Wilders board server, I click on Close this window.

    Re: Test Preview with Image

    Now I want to put my image between those two lines (Hello and Cheers).

    I scroll down and see the following (see screenshot).
    You see that ATTACH line with those brackets and that number?

    That number is referring to the image I have already uploaded on the server.
    Of course that number will be different for every image you upload.

    Now I have to copy and paste exactly what the screenshot is showing in red, to the place in my posting where I want it to be.

    Thanks GroverH !
    So sorry that I didn't give your link too !

    Well, I think your thread and the ones mentioned at reply # 12 covers it (and the pictures on these three threads have much better quality than mine), so I guess I'd better leave it to that ;)
