I have been trying to add pictures to a forum. I think I am doing it right but with no results. I have the pics in my picture folder on my computer and think I have been following the correct procedure, but never get the picture to appear in the assigned location. I would appreciate a step by step set of instructions to get the results that I am wanting.

Thanks in advance.

I take photos with my cell phone & transfer them to my computer for editing. After editing, I save them to a folder on the computer. When I have signed in to Lumberjocks.com & want to add a photo to a post I start with some text. Then I click on the “img” icon at the left above the text box. This brings up a dialogue box with a “Choose file” icon. When you click on that it goes to your computer. Find the folder and photo file of the image you want to use. Click “Open” and it will upload to Lumberjocks and show the file name beside the Choose file icon. Then click on “Insert this image.” It will insert the file name reference below the existing text. To actually see what it will look like, click on the Preview icon (green) above & right of the text box.

Phil, Thank You for the help. I had done the steps correctly, but had not clicked on the green Preview icon.

This is the flat face of the first piece of wood. Next will be the end grain
Didn’t mean to show this twice and don’t know how to delete.

Ahh, a simple one!

Quarter sawn oak.

Looks like red oak, but a close end grain shot will tell if it is white or red oak.

Red oak has end grain like hollow straws or tubes. Easy enough to identify with a close look, or if you can shave off a slice of end grain (< 1/16”) and see light through it, it is red.

Chemically, some sodium nitrate solution applied to wet a small spot on the surface will turn obvious black after about 10 minutes if white oak. No change for red oak. Check out the grocery isles for a shaker of meat preservative who’s label mentions sodium nitrate (or nitrite).

Monkey Wood end grain. I could probably brighten the color if you want.

Glad to help, I think most Id’ers are ein it just because it is fun 8^)

You need to get wayyyyy closer on the end grain shots if possible, maybe fill the picture with a 1” width of endgrain.

The top Photo still has a reddish cast so red oak is still #1, but white oak can get colors as well so not 100%

The cedar sure has the cedar look. Is there still bark on the sides? cedar has the long stringy bark.
Many “versions” of cedar.

I’ve never heard of “monkey wood”. There is “monkey pod”, but I’ve no in person knowledge and some pictures
I’ve seen really don’t quite match. Many (most?) of these tropicals have a variety of local and regional names.
See monkey pod

For the “Wamba”, it falls into the dark hole of tropical varieties. I’d assume it is as the label says. Reference

Be sure to post these individually in a new forum post. You’ll get a lot more info when the post is titled something like “help ID this wood please” versus this thread named “how to add pictures” 8^)

I’m trying to learn my way around LumberJocks. Not used to Forums, Blogs, etc. and the proper way to use them. I now feel that I have pictures under control. Thanks to all who are advising and helping me step though the learning process. I’ll be increasing future participation.
