I have written an article and would like to borrow/download a photo or 2 from the data base and can't figure out how to do it. Can you help me?

First thing is to contact the people who posted the photos and ask for their permission to use them. Smiling And if the photos have a watermark, the owner of the photo may be willing to send you a copy without the watermark.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

In any article you can LINK to photos in the database and they will appear in your article.

Oh, I didn't know that worked in articles! I thought you needed permission; I know I've seen mention before of photos being used with permission in some articles. Maybe just a courtesy?

Yes, you can use the db_photo tag in your article and that'll work just fine. No need for permission since it's all handled internally and is basically extending the database into the article.

Just open the image you want to use, and copy and paste the db_photo tag you see at the top.
