New member struggling

Post by gpw4738 » Wed Apr 21, 2021 6:22 pm

Hi all
I don’t consider myself to be computer illiterate, I am however struggling with the forums on this site. How long do I wait or what do I do to be able to post photos or answer a pm. I’ve been reading and studying for a couple weeks now and not getting any further ahead. I’m enjoying the forums but would like to be able to interact more. Signed up for the photo hosting site but am unable to download a photo. Have people pm me but am unable to answer. Any help appreciated

On this forum you don't need a host, unlike some other sites. Here is how I do it, on a mac;
Take a picture.
Upload it to mac.
Export it to Documents.
Then any time you want to post a picture on G, at the bottom you click on Attachments.
Click on Add Files.
Documents appears and you click on the pic you want;
Click on Choose.
Easier to do than to explain.
I also use IMGUR; that is easier; just click on large thumbnail, then BBC Code. Paste that on your message. That's it.
