    Has something changed in the last few days when it comes to posting pictures for items to be put up for sale?

    I am sure its user error but what I have always done in the past has been:
    1- hit the "Print Screen" button
    2- Open Paint, paste the image, crop it down.
    3- Save it as a Jpeg
    4- Open the Jpeg and then save it into Word
    5- Copy it from the Word document and paste it into the thread (Done).

    Its always worked in the past for me but starting yesterday the images are not posting. I have tried to post by copying directly from Paint and the Jpeg as well but thats not working either. I am sure its user error but I have used this process for years with no problems but now the images are not posting.

    Any help would be great.

    No idea what happened with Stratics, but I'd recommend using a free image host for your images such as http://www.imgur.com
    Continue from step 3...
    4. Go to imgur.com click 'upload image' at the top
    5. 'Browse Computer' and point it to the jpeg and click upload
    6. Wait for it to upload and copy the image url (direct link to image).
    7. Click the image icon on Stratics (up near bold, underline, etc.) and paste the url.
