How to Add a Photo to a Forum Post

Hey guys, Alex here! I’m going to walk through this ‘how to’ with you.

First things first: there’s so many different reasons to upload a photo to a forum post. Whether it’s to illustrate a point, inspire others, get critique or simply share an image. Sometimes a photo really does speak a thousand words.  

For this tip, i’ll show how I’d share a photo of my son to a forum post.

Adding a photo to a forum thread

To add/insert a photo to a post you are making in the forum, do this:

1. Select the section of the forum where you want to post the image. (This includes those looking to respond to an existing thread topic with an image).

(In this example, I want to post my photo in the people category)
