    Hello,

    MalwareTips has a powerful Attachment system which can be used by all members to Upload images and logs directly in their posts.
    Not only our attachment system is easier to use, but it will also be faster at loading the image than traditional image hosting sites.
    In addition, apart from images it also supports logs and other type of extensions.

    The primary use of the attachment upload feature is to allow members to show relevant screenshots or other material that could help document or better explain the points being discussed in a thread.

    How to use our Attachment system

    1. When creating a new thread, after you have finished writing the content of your post look bellow the editor box an "Upload a File" button. To start the upload process, click on this button.

      The "Upload a File" button can also be found under the "Quick Reply" box.

    2. Browse to the location where the image or file is stored and double click on it.

    3. The image is now on the MalwareTips server and will be attached to your post. You will now have two options:
      • You have the option to insert the attachment into the post as a thumbnail or as a full image. (RECOMMENDED)
        3.jpg
        4.jpg

        This is how the post will look when you embed the attachments into the post:

      • OR: If you do not embed the attachments they will be available at the bottom of the post in the "Attached Files" box.

    To remove an attachment, you can use the "Delete" button which should be available (when editing the post) next to each attachment.

    I always use Quick Reply for new posts or uploading images.

    Drag and Drop Supported

    I only use More Options during a post edit that needs an image attachment.

    Same here! Drag & drop is probably the easiest method and still gives the option to post those larger images as a thumbnail.
