Well that's all fine and dandy but this guy does not know how to drag and drop so any other explanations would help.

Yes seems like those instructions were designed for someone that already knows how to post pictures on this board, they are nearly useless to most other folks.

The easiest way, is if you have a smartphone. You can download a free app called Tapatalk. Works slick!

Will need to learn a "little" about Tapatalk but there is no comparison between using Tapatalk and trying to use this forum directly for posting pics. Suggest trying to figure out Tapatalk.

For sure, as with everything there is a little bit of learning curve. I'm sure YouTube has a vid or a million on, "How to post pics using Tapatalk? Or experiment a little and use this forum's "Testing Board". That's what I did.

Tapatalk is very stable now, up till a few years ago it used to crash all the time on me. And more often than not, I'd have a current model smartphone.

Another plus, is you don't have to learn to use a different format for posting pics, if you happen to browse other inferior forums. I'd say 99% of all my pics posted on forums are using Tapatalk, I love it.

Problem with posting via tapatalk is that the pic has to be on your phone first. It's not that hard to get it there...but sometimes that's an extra step.

I do agree that it posts the pics way easier than the forum interface.

Actually...correction... I don't find the forum interface hard to use...drag and drop is pretty easy. The problem is that it just posts thumbnails vs actually putting the pic in the thread and nobody wants to click on thumbnails to look at your pic.

Current Stable:
2016 KTM Super Duke GT
2015 Honda Grom
2015 Yamaha FZ-09
2013 Honda GL1800 ABS
2007 Suzuki GSXR 600 (Track)
2004 Suzuki GSXR 750 (Track)
