Thanks for the explanation Warren.
Hi Eric - here is one way of doing it ....
Scroll down the forum list until you see 'Original Artwork'
Click on it.
At lower right on your screen click on 'Post New Thread'
Enter your Thread Title and then type your message text.
Click on the 'Upload a File' button.
A small window will appear which will allow you to search for your painting in your computer.
It pays to know where your painting is stored in your computer before you start.
Click on the painting's file name or thumbnail in the window and it will appear as a small thumbnail below the forums 'Upload a File' button with the word 'Insert' next to it.
Choose whether you want to show a clickable thumbnail or full image and click on the button.
Your image will appear in your post in the thread you have started.
Copy the above text into 'Notepad' etc and print it to have it at hand when you carry out the actions.
Why not practice a few image uploads here in this thread just to get the routine of image file uploads ... it is easier than it was on the old forum. There is also a 'drag and drop' method of inserting images but I haven't listed that.
How do I get back to seeing the last post first, if you understand what I mean. On this version I'm having to scroll to the bottom of the screen to see the last post made. On the old version there was an option setting so that you could set the positions of posts so the last post made was at the top. I am unable to find that on this version.
