How to insert images?
« on: August 30, 2013, 09:08:00 AM »
Forgive my rookie question, but I'm new to actually participating in the forum and can't figure out how to insert an image.  I see the insert image button, but all that does is put the little image brackets in the text of the post.  I tried dragging a picture between the brackets and it just went to the picture and took me away from my post.  Any help will be appreciated!

You need to use an outside hosting source for the photo.  Images aren't hosted on the AHA website.

I use photobucket and insert a link to the image.

I've been using imgur to host photos, they make it pretty easy.
