Posting Photos on NGF
« on: November 29, 2018, 03:22:39 PM »
I'd like to post pix, but it seems I can only post .pdf files on NGF.

Is there any way to post .jpg, .jpegs and the more usual photo file types please....

I tried to post some jpeg pictures yesterday and got the result that only pdf files were acceptable. When I tried an hour or so later, the jpeg pictures posted okay.  ???

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Did you upload to the Gallery, or try?

No, as I was trying to reply to a specific thread, rather than a gallery Tank?

I was wondering if it was because I'm a new member on NGF, and have restrictions.

This happens on the G Scale Central forum, of which I'm a long standing contributor....

OK, well you need to go into Reply [to post] and look for 'Add image to post and upload to gallery'.  Click it and upload an image.  The code will then appear in the post, and the picture when you hit the Post button.

Success!

Might have been because I tend to reply to threads using the  'Quote' feature, rather than 'Reply'.

Anyway, thanks for your help Tank....
