This is an attempt to explain how to load pics on your post.
After typing in the message body you may want to show a pic or 2 or 3. If the pic is too large you will have to resize it or it will not load. There screen shots were too large to load so I reduced them to 720 x 450 pixels.
To grab a pic from your device click on Choose File
Attachment:
Choose file.jpg

A window will pop up on your device, you can then navigate to where your picture is, in my case I have it saved on the desktop, but it could be in the photo files, or the files that will self destruct once open, or wherever. Click on the pic to highlight it, then mouse over to the Choose button and click it.

You will return to your page where you will see the file name chosen, (the red eclipse should be over the text to the right which is the file name, I had to make at least one mistake building this how to). You can also type in a descripter which greatly adds info to the pic you are posting. Some guys here appreciate this.

Then just click on Add the file

A window will pop up giving you upload info.

As you add pics you upload list will grow.

Once you load pics, an Attachments line appears with a drop down menu with you pic list. You can write text, press Enter/Return on the keyboard to move the curser below the text, open the drop down list and choose which pic you want to place and click on Place inline.
Attachment:
Putting pics after or between text.jpg

If you choose not to place your pics inline, they will appear as last loaded - first pic, first loaded - last pic.
There is also a limit to how many pics can be uploaded to a post, I can't remember the number.
Hope this might be of help to someone, because you know me, I like lots of pics!

I know this is a basic how to, feel free to add or suggest corrections.
