    I've only ever used it on my laptop. Just above the box for writing a post. There is aa "Add image to post"
    highlighted. Clicking on this takes you to a browse files box, which allows you to select an image from
    your files.
    The photo box along the tools bar, I think allows you to post a URL for an image on the web. Hopefully
    Someone more experienced than I will comment. :)

    Oh its very easy ,you pick up the phone and get your 12 year old nephew over to show you how to do it ,simple really :D
    By the way, did I tell you, I was "Mad"?

    What you have to know is at the AJB software does not store the pics, which you can see here.

    So, you have to upload your pic to a hosting service and then put the url ( which you are receiving from the hosting service) into your comment.

    Or you use he AJB hosting link (which is utterly crap because it only shows thumbnails) by using he 'add image to Post' Function

    The image uploading on AJB could really do with a reform so that a little bit bigger pictures could be uploaded in avatars. Although this all hangs on SiCo returning again as he's the admin here and thus the only one that can makes changes of this nature. That said, I'm happy with the Colonel Sun avatar that I have. It might make things easier for newer members of AJB however. -{

    I don't think at this will happen.
    When I see how many people are not able to upload pics in reasonable image sizes, I can imagine what desaster it will be when people can freely post their uncropped 12MB pics directly from their smartphones :D

    Well, I mean if it allowed you a little bit more in terms of size for an avatar image. It is quite restrictive currently, but as you say this is unlikely to change. I had to get TP to help me with mine! :D

    I would have helped you, too ;)

    Avatars are max. 80x80 Pixels.

    Be careful what you ask TP for, he usualy only does nude pics of old women :D

    SiCo checked in and he said that nothing has changed with AJB - so it's either the hosting site or possible ad-blockers...

    That's not a 'fault' - that's just a 'taste & decency' filter :D
