    I have been using the site for a few years now and one thing that niggles me is that I write the text to my new thread and then upload a photo, my problem is that the photos always come up first in the thread. This then requires me to edit the thread to get the photos and text in the right order.
    Maybe I am being dim and should upload photos first then insert the text? Mmmmm.....
    Or am I missing something?
    I generally like to right the text and then illustrate the point I make with a photo hence my method.
    Any thoughts?
    All the best Nick

    Click into the part of the post of the post you want the picture to appear before hitting the insert as thumb or full button. I usually leave a space above & below an image. The images will appear where ever your cursor was left on screen.

    For me it's normally;
    • Upload images
    • Type paragraph
    • hit enter key twice
    • insert image
    • hit enter key twice
    • paragraph
    • hit enter key twice
    • insert image
    Or
    • Upload images
    • Type paragraph
    • hit enter key twice
    • insert all as thumb or full

    Yes, wherever you left the cursor.

    I do a considerable amount via my Windoze phone, so knowing where it is can be a bit tricky at times and have to take care.

    As they say...

    I write the lines of text, then be sure to click on below the text before I actually hit the 'full size' button. The pic will appear where the cursor is.

    Simple, but took me a little while to figure, too.

    Even if I last left the cursor in the right place, it seems that just before I click 'Full Size' button I have to make sure that the cursor is where I want the photo.

    I also 'Enter' a line between photos so that the photos do not bunch together.

    Exactly; I recheck the cursor and try to drop a line down, too.
