How to place photos in a post

Post by Icky » Sat Nov 30, 2019 10:53 am

It may not be obvious but placing your images / photos inline in a post makes for a more aesthetic look and is the preferred way of displaying your photos.

Its easy to forget to click the Place inline button and that ends up with a post like this with all your phots at the end of a post marked as attachments. The picture below is of the post preview to show the attachment area and buttons as well:

However with the Place inline button you can place the cursor where you want the picture to be and click the Place inline and it will put the photo at that point in the post. One other tip is to add an extra new line around the pic to move the text away from it. The following images is of the same post but with the photo inline and spaced with new lines.

Bumping thread - Just a reminder to place you images inline to provide a cleaner look and also place them around the text related to the image.

Have noticed a increase in leaving pics as attachments over the last few weeks.

BUMP - (still looking for a :bump: icon @exxos)

Have seen a few images not being placed in line on the forum recently.

Please make sure when adding an image to also place inline so that the images flow with the text.
