Default Combining text with photos

I find it hard to follow a narration that is long and refers to a number of photos posted below. I think it would be nice to be able to post photos in the text area so we can post a picture and put text above or below it to describe what we are looking at as we go. Other sites have this possibility and it's great feature.

This is not a complaint. I realize we can't always have everything we want due to cost restraints, time restraints, etc., but it would be nice to know if it would be possible to get it.

Ok I got the answer. For anyone reading this who doesn't know you can post your pictures with text, just copy the image from you photo host into the text area wherever you want it. Bj and Cocheseuga (Chris) were kind enough to help me with this).

In my shop theory and practice are united. Nothing comes out right and nobody knows why.

If you use your own hosting, this is possible.

As most members Know, I use Paint.net to add text as I find it easier than Windows Paint and Photo-shop, however, I do use Photo- shop for "touching up" the photos. All my shots are here on the forum and will remain there even if, in the unlikely event that I have a fallout, unlike in the past where certain members have left in a huff, taking all their photos with them.

Thanks everyone for the help on this. My next challenge is to find out how to add text to photos. I have photobucket as my photo host and while they have resizing touch-up and such, they do not have a text feature. Anyway, it is always fun to learn something new, so my first step is probably to look at Paint.net to see what is required. Wish me luck!

One great thing about Imageshack is that it gives you a thumbnail image to put on forums, and if you click on that thumbnail you get the full size image.

Harry uses Paint.net, but another free one is Fastone Image Viewer. I use it at work and it's easy to use.

After opening an image, right-click it and you have several options. Choose Edit > Draw Board and you can draw lines, circles, add text, and many other things. Fastone Image Viewer LINK

Might be more than you need but Google for "gimp". It can do at least 95% of what Photoshop can do. Cost = $0
