How do you post a picture from the database onto a post on a forum? I cannot seem to figure it out. I tried copy and paste but that did not work and too much going back and forth.
There must be a simple way to do that.

My work around (which may not be the most efficient) is to open a second window of ATP, go to the photo I want to import, right click, select 'copy image address' go back to the first window and do a paste. I then preview the post to be sure it worked correctly.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

say you are looking at a photo from the database...

click the picture. Once that opens look near the top and click the link that says 'Show more photo details'.

At the top of the page that opens you'll see more info about the photo...

Thumb of 2016-02-04/robertduval14/c3ff49

on that page, copy and paste the little section that says ATP BB Code, beginning with the bracket. That code will allow you to place a photo from the database into a forum post, a blog entry or even an article you are writing for the site.

I hope these instructions were clear enough for you.
