    This is a quick guide to help you understand how to upload images to the forum. Do note that in one post a maximum of 20 images can be uploaded.

    There are two ways to upload images to the forum:
    1. Copy-Paste from any image editor directly into the post window
    2. Upload from the "Upload a File" option

    1. Copy-Paste from an image editor

    In this option you don't have to go through the hassle of uploading an image to the forum and then inserting it at the appropriate place in the post. You can simply open an image in any image editing software, copy it and paste it in the post. Here is how you do it:

    Open the image in any image editing software (In this case it is Irfanview) and choose the "Copy" option (or simply do a Ctrl+C)

    Right click at the appropriate location in your post where you want the image to be inserted and just to a right click "Paste" or do Ctrl+V

    That's it !! Your image is inserted in the post and it can also be seen in the upload_2014-8-23_22-2-31.png section below.

    Do note that the image will be automatically watermarked as soon as you upload it.

    2. Upload images from the "Upload a File" button

    When you are writing a post you will see a upload_2014-8-23_21-56-41.png button below the post box

    Clicking on the above button will take you to the File Explorer in your operating system from where you can choose the files to be uploaded (You can chose one or many files at once)

    Here I choose uploading three files at once (Press Shift + select files to select multiple files in Windows)

    Once you select the required files just press "Enter" or the appropriate button depending on your OS

    Now in the upload_2014-8-23_22-2-31.png section just below the posting window you will see that the three files have got attached

    Once you have uploaded the images just click on upload_2014-8-23_22-6-33.png "Full Image" button below the image that you want inserted in the post.

    Insert image 3.jpg here:

    Insert image 4.jpg here

    Insert image 5.jpg here

    That's it !! Your images are inserted in the post. Adding images to your posts is now this easy :)

    Happy uploading !!

    Mods & experts: One querry (might sound silly though).

    How do I arrange the pics I attached to a post in the order I wish them to be seen in the post? When I click on Upload File, it does give me the option to choose the pics in a bulk, but doesnt allow them to be sorted. Kindly help.

    Once you add your pictures, keep your cursor where you want to have any specific picture. Then click "Full Image", it will add the pic at that location.

    How do I manage the drafts and images?
    I am not finding any option to load the drafts. I am only seeing Save Draft and Delete Draft.
