I have an article but it is only a draft because it has to have a photo. Instructions say I can add a db photo tag. Huh?

Judy, when you click on the photo you want to use from the DB, it will enlarge and at the top you'll see its 'vital statistics'.
Look at the bottom line there and you'll see "ATP BB code . . ."
Copy that code, including the beginning and ending brackets.

Then Paste it into your article.
Easy as that!

Once done, then Preview your article to see if it's just the way you want it.

Hope this helps!

Oh, one more thing, if you want to use one of your own photos that isn't in the database, then it works the same way as it works in a post you would make to a thread in one of the forums. You probably already know that, but I tossed it in anyway, just in case. Smiling

May I tack on a related question please?
When I write an article and add photos, all the reader can see is the thumbnail. Having to click to see the full size image detracts from the story. Is there a way to upload a photo from my computer (not from the database) and have it show up without the need to click? Thank You!

There's not really a way to do that. Well, there is a sort of way that I can do it but it's not at all something that is user-friendly or intuitive so I've never made it available to the membership at large. So, for now, all images end up being thumbnails that you click on to view fullsize.
