Default Attaching Pictures to Private Messages

My computer skills are minimal, at best, but I can't figure out how to attach a picture to a PM. I have tried three or four times by "copying and pasting", but each time I get the message that there are too many characters. I believe it said I was allowed 8000 characters. I resized the pic as small as I could, and it still said I had exceeded the 8000 characters. I have "received" PMs with much larger pics. So, what am I doing wrong? I tried to find a sticky that covered this, with no luck. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a problem with how to attach an image to a regular post. I have to wonder how I can "Drag Files Here To Attach" if I have to leave the page in order to find the files under consideration. I'm no website expert, but I would have placed a small button within the posting field to add an image with just a few clicks...

The only way to include a pic in a PM here is to host it on a site like Photobucket or other hosting site, moving this to Forums Support, maybe that can be changed.

Used to be very easy, but something changed along the way. I do not even try anymore.

Seek and ye shall find. I will write an ANOUNCEMENT thread that includes both PM and GBO Forum photo and image inserting. Please stand by while I figure this out...

Go to this GBO link:

https://www.go2gbo.com/forums/20-ann...osts-pm-s.html

and follow the instructions.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: There is a TEST FORUM at the end of the GBO Forums. You are advised to use the linked instruction there to gain proficiency...prior to attempting image insertion in Personal Messages, posts, or new threads.

People are WISE. Computers are STUPID and require EXACT code and instructions from YOU. This is NOT rocket science, but it IS confusing and WILL cause additional wrinkles on your brain. Once you get it figured out, you earn your PhD, and become the computer GENIUS you ALWAYS WERE.

Ask me. I will help you.
