Or you can add it as a thumbnail once you have uploaded a file [attachment=928:name] [attachment=879:name] anywhere within your post. Of course clicking the image will view it full size again. The advantage with the above methods is that it allows for the image to load quickly when viewed - useful if viewing on a mobile device. Both methods will use the lightbox when viewing the images in the post.

The other way is to include the full image, once you have uploaded a file. [attachment=927:name] This makes it nice and big, but it could be a problem for mobile viewing. It also doesn't present the image using lightbox and increases scroll. This would be the least preferred option, but may be useful in certain presentations. [attachment=880:name]

Ok, some of us apparently need instructions. When I click on the little image button just above here ^^ I don't get any option other than to put in an address for an image. Looking down below the box, RHS, there is an 'Upload a File' button, and a 'More Options' button. That explains your option one (upload a file), and option three (fullsize image). Where does one find the thumbnail option?

ok this wee fella here, circled in red [attachment=926:name] allows for images to be used from a different web address. The problem with this is that if that image gets moved/replaced/deleted then so does the picture in the post. It also uses the host sites bandwidth, so if they discover it and don't like it they can complain or as I have seen in some instances, it gets changed - either to a message or more usually porn. As you can see, its not therefore the preferred option. I'll add a bit more to the 2nd and 3rd posts so that you can see where to find thumbnail and full image
