I kinda stumbled on a pretty easy way to post up pics on here last night, figured I'd share it with you all. You don't even need to resize the pics first (although it helps, if you don't, the full size file will upload and then get resized - if you're on a low speed connection, resizing first is definitely recommended).

First, start your post like normal. When you get to the part where you want to add a picture, click on the insert image button:

Untitled.jpg

Leave the little tab on "From Computer", and click "Select Files"

Untitled2.jpg
Find the picture you want to upload on your computer, highlight it, then click "Open":

Untitled3.jpg

Once you've selected your file, you should get this box. Just click "Upload File(s)":

Untitled4.jpg

Now double click on the thumbnail image in your post (do this before you click post, while you're still composing the post).

Almost done - be back for the final step in another post.

You'll get a popup that lets you pick the size you want the picture displayed in. Click the size you want it to be, large works pretty good, then click "OK". The big picture will now be in your post!

If you're loading multiple pictures, you'll need to move the tab back to "From Computer" in the second step each time. Also, if you have multiples with text between them, it's easier to write up the whole post and get all the pictures inserted, and do the last two steps to make them bigger after everything else is done.

There might be a way to upload multiple files at once, but I haven't tried it yet. Be back later if it works.

Edit: forgot to change the size on this last pic, and can't find a way to edit it easily. Gotta do it before posting!

You're double clicking on the pic while still in the "Compose" right?

Could be just site running slow, seen some of that, or maybe a popup blocker on your comp doing its thing.

At work now and getting up early for a charity cut tomorrow, so it might be a bit beforeI can be much help.

Thanks, brotha Chukka!

Want to add a bunch of pics at once? When you get to the select pictures screen, just load up multiple pictures by highlighting all the pics you want to add at once. Looks like probably a 5 pic per post limit. I had a bit of trouble getting them all to load for this post, so it might have a few bugs to work out, try it if you'd like. It's gonna be a bit harder to put

It might be even easier yet, gotta play a little. Stay tuned!

Damn, I thought straight drag and drop would work, and it looked like it was gonna, but when I hit post reply, I got a "too many characters" error.

Oh, well.

Haven't had a lot of luck uploading multiple pics at once, for now till someone figures it out, it's probably best to upload em one at a time.
