I am new to this site so I'm not sure how to upload a photo in this post. Just got familiar with uploading layouts. Tried to copy and paste but that doesn't work.

Default February 6th - Photography Challenge

I couldn't pick just one. We recently went on a hike that had stunning geographical features. Ironically I took a lot of 'rule of thirds' pics!



Update: oh maybe interpreted it wrong - if the pic needs to be from the challenge day, we’ll then welcome to rainy Seattle - where no joke, our kids are on a two hour delay due to all the flooding causing road closure - that’s a first!

Welcome! Have you tried watching this video from the forum tutorials? This is what helped me.
When I post just a photograph like for this challenge, I upload my photo to smugmug and follow similar directions.
Other folks use other online photo storage/galleries, but I'll bet the general directions are similar.
I'm glad you're joining the fun at SSD! It's a great community.

I use a private Facebook album to "host" a photo when I m putting it directly into the forum.
After uploading to FB, right click, copy image, in the SSD forum open the reply, insert image, then paste into it.
I hope this and what the others said is helpful.

Default Rule of Thirds

Here's my photo.



The last couple of times I've posted I only get a link to my image, not the actual image. I've followed the video tutorial. It worked the first few days of the birthday challenge. I use google chrome browser, resize my image to under 150K. Any ideas?

Here's your photo.




If you click the "quote" button, you can see the "code" I used... [URL= etc...

From the directions it seemed like we needed to take a new photo for the challenge. Thanks to the forecast gray, rainy day my only chance to get out and do that was at the bus stop this morning.



ETA: I'm going back through my links before the deadline, and for some reason everything I posted on Google Photos and ran through TinyURL isn't showing anymore even though the code is still there and it used to show. Here is the photo I originally had here:

Hey sweet pea, try removing the double "http://
and remove all the [url coding because that's where you would grab the url link in the search bar above

I still don't have my photos from data recovery and have yet to put any photos on my new computer. Rather than learn something new, I used an older one from November that I uploaded to Snapfish. Hope this is okay.

We just went to the Garden of the Gods in January. I wish we would have more than the couple of hours we have spent there...

I hope this works. I've clicked on the yellow square and pasted in my image, but it never seems to post the actual photo or layout.

The lighting wasn't perfect, but I couldn't resist catching my son taking advantage of our recently-repaired fireplace this morning. It's so snowy over here, and warm and cozy inside.
