I have some pictures I want to add to my session reports. I cant figure out how.
I have them saved on my computer and at Flickr. The ones from flickr show up as broken.
On my computer it is a pictures folder and I cant find a path.

I have been playing around and just cant figure it out.

Im becoming frustrated.

Help

Sometimes I find it easier to save them in my gallery and use them from there. One more step but works every time.

You can also upload pictures into your gallery directly from this editor (Upload New Geek Image).

I also prefer that people would put session report and review pictures into their own galleries instead of uploading to the game's page.
1. It is faster
2. No missing pictures (moderation can reject some)
3. No flooding the game's picture page with similar photos and save moderators' efforts.

Agreed. Upload them to your personal BGG Gallery. In your post use the code:

[imageid=xxxxxx size inline]

The size parameter is optional and allows you to specify particular size if you have more than one.

The inline parameter is also optional depending on how you wanted to appear in your post.

On Flickr, you need to click BBCode under HTML/BBCode. You'll get a block of text, use the part with IMG and /IMG in brackets.

Flicker can make it difficult to embed images (at the uploaders request).

For a guide to using images in general:
