      Nothing found in the Q&A or stickies. Search function not very good at all.

      Can we upload images from our PCs to JPR posts, or do we have have the image tied to a URL?

      Thanks

      You can’t post directly from your computer. https://imgur.com/ is a good one to try. I generally store my images on flickr.com and post from there.

      Copy an image from anywhere and paste it to my personal image collection on Imgur. Then click on the image and Imgur gives me several options for copying it. I click on the HTML option and click the “copy” button. Then back here and paste the HTML link I copied in Imgur. At that moment, there is no image, just the code for the link to my Imgur collection. When I post here, JPR reads the link and produces the actual image. Hasn’t failed yet. Only thing is, removing the image from my Imgur collection kills the link, so anyone who reads one of my old trivia questions will hit a dead end on the image. The link remains in JPR, but the deleted image means there is nothing to link to.

      I’ll look at that Imgur.
