    I am trying to remove link .......................................................

    Sorry, Simon:

    Posted something else in error, trying to get images up. When I post images from PC, the photo shows, but the wheel spins indefinitely. You answered this ? before, but I'm trying to edit this quickly.

    No rush. Meant to PM you.

    Click on the image icon (Between the smiley and the link icons).

    Click browse then choose whichever image you have on your file.

    Click on the open tab below.

    It took 30 seconds for the wheel to stop spinning and load the picture.

    Thanks, Village Idiot. I appreciate the reply as well as these great shots.

    My problem is posting photos that I have uploaded from my camera. They post quickly as links on e-mail but not here. Must be something else . . .

    Appreciate your help/

    It depends on the image and the size. The larger it is, the longer it might take. If you have a very high-res image you'll have more success if you shrink it down locally first. i.e. Instead of a 4800px image, 800px is plenty.

    Alternatively, post it to some hosting and link to it from your post.

    Coco, have you tried to just copy and paste your image into the text box?

    I have had problems loading images in the past, too, and I have found that smaller images load better

    Thanks, Orphan Crow!

    As part of our ongoing tutorial, today -- Saturday, 20 August, 8:30 a.m. -- I again tried posting from Photobucket. I cannot get a single image only to post, but, instead, the entire PB page and a potential slideshow appear. In the past, I posted single images here, on JWD, with no difficulty.

    I tried all four links, with identical results. I did this on my e-mail account to test. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong!

    Thank you again for your help.

    Hi CoCo,

    Can you try a picture that you already have on your computer?
