I've decided to try and make a real effort to learn how to post photographs here on Dyxum. I'm halfway digital literate, so I'm hoping I can pull it off. Any suggestions on which hosting (I think that's the term) site to upload my files to so I can link them to this site. Are any easier to use than others? This 74 year old thanks you all in advance!

Well this 80yr old has been using Flickr for the past 16years with no problems, details of how to are to be found in the knowledge base. I only wish I'd filled in my photo details from the word go so that I could have shared my flickr with others, I only thought I'd be using it for a few months and here I am 16 yrs later!!

Here's a link to the Knowledge Base thread.

Note that _at the top_ there is a little index for different hosting sites. That index names some hosting sites you could consider using (though I'm not sure all of them still exist). Clicking on the link for each will show you the unique steps for posting from a given site.

While I am given credit for the original post, I really wrote only part of it and many of the screenshots are not mine!

These days, I mainly recommend copying the URL (the link text) from whatever host site you use, and then clicking on the 'tree picture' (slide picture) icon, and pasting in the URL. But you do have to do some research to figure out which URL is correct and which size photo you want/need to post -- i.e. which URL fits with which size.

I've never used any other hosting sites than flickr , but I find it very easy to post images here from there .
Granted I've been on Dyxum a few years , but before coming on here I'd never really used computers , but it was easy to do as soon as someone explained how .
It took a few attempts.

It took over another ten years to work out how to link a thumbnail image of an image posted in another thread into a separate thread though !

Work on that one later .
see my photostream on flickr;
