How to Include Photos in a Forum Post

Want to share a photo directly in a forum post with other nurses instead of posting a link? This tutorial will show you how to include photos in your post by using a feature in the toolbar.

Step One: After clicking “Reply to This Topic” you’ll be presented with a text box with a toolbar. Locate the landscape icon (mountain w/ a yellow background) which will allow you to insert and edit an image.

Step Two: After clicking the landscape icon, you’ll be presented with a pop-up box titled “Image Properties.” Paste your image URL into the appropriate text box. These url’s usually end in “.jpg.” Remember, you’re image must be hosted somewhere on the web like in a Photobucket or Flickr account. You can adjust the width and height if you like. Click OK.

Step Three: Your image should now appear in the text box. If you’d like to leave a comment or description, press Return/Enter once and begin typing your message. Click the Submit button and you’re all finished!
