The maximum pic size is 640 x 480. The KB size of file can vary depending on format, bmp, jpeg, gif, etc., but the width and height must be 640 x 480 or less. If the pic you are attempting to upload is too large, you will be given a prompt informing you that is the case and you need to resize the pic. We apologize that there is no picture resizer, so you'll have to resize your pics in order for you to upload them to the forum. You can add multiple pics on a post to a thread, with a maximum of 5 pics per post.
(Edit 10/7/13: there is now an auto pic-resizer, one should not have to manually re-size pics. If anyone encounters a problem please let me know.)
Additionally, for the ease of the user learning how to post pics using this tutorial, it would best to have two internet browser windows open with HEF running in both browsers. That way, you can have the tutorial running in one window, and an HEF thread in the other window allowing you to perform the steps in the tutorial. There is a Test Forum at the Forum Support and Announcements section that you can test posting pics. So, let's get started.
First thing, when you want to add a pic to a post reply, you can't add pics using "Quick Reply", you have to click the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the thread.
Once you've opened the Advanced reply screen, simply type the text for your reply in the text box as you would in Quick Reply. To add pics, click on either the paper clip in the toolbar above text box, or scroll down below the text box and click the "Manage Attachments" button.
This will open the File Upload Manager in a new window. Click on the Add Files button in top right corner of Upload Manager.
This will open an Upload window where you can select pics from your computer files. Click on the "Select Files" button at bottom of window.
This will open a new window that allows you to search your computer files for the pic you wish to upload, such as My Documents, My Pictures, etc.
