Click on "Go Advanced", click on the paper clip at the top of the message box (attachments), add your photo and click "Upload", put your cursor in the text of the message where you want the photo and click, then click on the down arrow next to the paper clip which will say "Manage Attachments" at the top and list all your photos you uploaded, click on the photo you want and you will see a number and the word "ATTACH" in brackets on both sides of the number in the message box which indicates where the photo will appear. spicebush swallowtail sm.jpg
Click on preview post and your photo should appear within the text. This one is about 400 x 400. You may want to go larger or smaller, that's why I was saying 300 x 300 is about right for general purposes, this one (my avatar) is about 280 x 300. So I guess for now we don't have thumbnails, just the full sized photo we submit. As a courtesy I'm going to try to limit the size so they don't bog down anyone's system, especially those on dial-up. I don't know how it will affect the server. I admit I'm a shutterbug and love to share so It'll be difficult to curtail the number I submit. I have a Photobucket account so maybe I'll try that method next.

I know it's frustrating when something doesn't go right with technology, I almost lost it when trying to figure out how to display a YouTube video!

See, I screwed that up by not putting the photo on its own line and got a broken sentence. I try to end a paragraph, press "Enter" to start a new one, add the attachment, then press "Enter" again so the photo is isolated. I didn't do that with the first photo which broke up the last sentence in the first paragraph.

Great photos, linrose!

I am too tired to read the instructions, but I love the pictures...especially the one in flight by the milkweed.

I went sorta bonkers over not being able to load photos.... that kills me when that happens. I'm glad they fixed it!!! I tried your way... I'm sure it works but it's not working for me.... yet. I'm gonna really have to figure this out. It's been buggin me for a looong time. I'll probably have to play with it. Once I get 1 in by accident... I can probably repeat it and get another 1 in. That's how new technology usually works for me. I get it by accident.

Well, one of the butterflies came flying out of the aquarium and began to buzz about the light bulb. Fearful that it would burn itself, I released it into the yard. I guess it was too warm in the house, and with the weather forecast predicting 80 degrees Sunday, I took the second crysalis and placed it temporarily in the fridge.

Tomorrow is supposed to be a beautiful sunny day in the 70's, but there is a frost warning for tomorrow night. There's plenty to nectar from in the yard, as the asters are numerous and there are still goldenrod surrounded by bees. Also, summer phlox bloomed a few days ago. Nevertheless, I fear that butterflies' life will be a short one...

No, I didn't get a picture. The camera was upstairs, and it was on a mission to burn itself badly. It was beautiful and perfectly formed. It was the first time I had ever laid eyes on an open-winged spicebush butterfly, and it was a rewarding, though frustrating, moment.

Story of my life... camera was upstairs... camera was in the garage.... in my purse... on the counter.... left on a seat in the car.... everywhere but around my neck where it should be when I'm out and about. You'll get another chance getting photos. This won't be your last so savor the moment!!!

Woohoo! You raised your very own butterfly! Don't be upset that it won't live long...it went much further in its life with you than it would have outside.

Good thinking. Now if this weather would just cooperate and let Fall come. It is warm here, too. Worried about my swallowtail chrysalides, too.
