The are good ways, bad ways, and ugly ways to post photos. Learn which is which.
o include a photo in your post, upload the photo using Westfly's Photo Gallery.
If either the height or the width of the photo exceeds 600 pixels, the Photo Gallery will automatically resize the photo so that the largest dimension is 600 pixels. This also ensures that the Photo Gallery will give you a URL for the resized photo. If both the height and width of your uploaded photo are less than 600 pixels, you cannot easily get the URL to paste into your post.
Once your photo is in the Photo Gallery, get the enlarged view of it. The URL is displayed below the enlargement. Copy the URL. Then click the image prompt; it's the fourth icon from the left in the post block (it's a rectangle with a triangle, circle, and square inside it); note that you must have used the "Reply" button, not "Quick Reply," to get the icon. Paste the photo's URL in the prompt box after you've clicked the image icon.
Photos that are stored on another website can be included in a Westfly post simply by clicking the "IMAGE" icon below the message window (bottom right icon, to the right of the Graemlins). You'll be prompted for the URL of the photo. Insert it, and you're done.
There are some issues with using photos from other websites: if the photo is more than 600 pixels wide, it will blow out the sides of the Board window on the right IF your photo is wider than 600 pixels AND IF the viewer is using IE or Safari. Also, if the photo is not properly compressed it will increase download times with no increase in quality. Therefore it is preferable to upload your image to Westfly's Photo Gallery.
