The short instructions below are to help members with uploading photos and images to BHF. Thank you to Oldmohawk for updating these on 4/11/18

1. Go to the thread/topic where you want to add your image

2. Write your reply in the reply box

3. Left click 'Attach files' button - bottom left. (This brings up your files on your computer/laptop/tablet)

4. Choose from your files (or photo gallery on a tablet) the photo(s) you want to post on the forum

5. Left click on the photo to highlight it (or just click on the image on your tablet)

6. The photo will upload to the forum and show as small thumbnail with the words 'Insert' 'Thumbnail' 'Full image' to the right of it.

7. Position your pointer where you want the image to appear in your post. Usually immediately under your message.

8. Choose the format you want your photo to appear as (thumbnail or full image) and click the appropriate button.

9. Click on 'Post Reply'' bottom right

Note: If the image won't upload it's file size might be too large. Check the size of it by right-click and reduce it as necessary. Microsoft 'Paint' program is one way of doing this. The maximum size of the file is 2048kb (2mb).
