We'll need to know your browser version and platform information to help you with this. Chances are it is a browser incompatibility issue.

Pretty new to computer, and I am having the same trouble with pictures. Evidentally the picture I want to send is not a Jpg or whatever. How do I know what the code for my picture is?
I am using a Mac OSX 10 and am trying to learn.

Wild Bill - the extension (last part of the file name after the ".", e.g., ".jpg", ".bmp", etc.) will usually indicate the file type. What is the extension of the file in question?

If the picture is not one of the accepted types (bmp, gif, jpeg, jpg are accepted types on TFL), there are several applications available to convert from one type to another. (Don't ask me the names of them.)

Mal,
The picture was sent to me by E-mail and it doesn't have a symbol or anything to describe it. It just says "Show Picture".

Ah! That's a different matter. Try saving the email attachment as a file and then see what the file name turns out to be.

I don't see how you would upload a picture directly from an email in the first place. It has to be stored somewhere in order to upload it - most likely in your email application folder under "attachments".

Attachments - Pics

____________

Unless I've misunderstood .... on this site - I believe you have to "pay" for the privilege of posting attachments (pics) .... is this correct?

Nope, not correct. No member other than the forum owner, Rich Lucibella, pays for anything.

It's not clear where that misunderstanding would come from. Did you read it somewhere?

My mistake.
I was thinking of another forum .... in which you have to be a "supporter" of the site - which means you have to contribute $, before they allow you to post attachments.
Sorry 'bout that .... think I'll take my medication, and go back to sleep now. (I'm so confused .... )
