Posting Photos using desktop computer
« on: March 28, 2018, 09:52:01 AM »
Please Note; I only use my cell phone for vocal conversations only, nothing else. So my question is: Using my desktop computer, how do I post photos? I will need to do this when the time comes to submit them for costume approval.

You need to upload your photos to a photo hosting site, like Flickr, imgur, etc.

Then find the image URL (how will depend on the hosting site) and you paste the image URL into your post.  When you save the post, or do a preview, your image will show inline on you post, not as a link.

On Flickr:
Click share image
Choose BBCode format
Select size (not bigger than 800x600)
Then copy the entire URL
Paste into your CCG post

Hope this helps.

I now have a flickr account and have uploaded my WIP photos. Do I select "Modify" in my WIP post and post the photos there, or do I create a new post? I want to make sure my photos are linked with my WIP list. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I would go back and modify your original posts to include the pictures.
