Testing again... pulled in 8.1 patch that MS said should have nothing to do with this issue... so either they are wrong or something else changed on the RN site... but seems to be working now. :-)

Not able to post any images inline - whether from Snapfish or Photobucket.

Click on your above link and when the photo pops open in a new window, right click the photo with your mouse and "Copy Image URL".

Click the "Insert Image" and then click "From URL" tab.

Paste what you just copied into the From URL field, uncheck the radio button, "Retrieve remote file and reference locally". Your result will look like this. Hope this helps.

Thanks - still have odd issues posting - even text, where this Surface 2 cursor starts flashing when I'm trying to enter text. Have to exit and re enter the forum. Seems this tablet/PC hybrid &/or 8.1 has more quirky issues than I am prepared to or want to deal with. Probably should have bough a laptop vs. this - but what doesn't kill me will make me stronger - so I my SO keeps telling me when I threaten to drop kick this thing back to Bill Gates :-)

BTW... getting the image posted was an extremely cumbersome process of trial and error such that I'm now not sure I can repeat it... what I can say - if you are ever asked about a similar experience - is that Photo Bucket does not work, Snap Fish does..sort of, and I just need to go back and see if I can recall all that I did to get the image here.

Will share what I learn so no one has to endure this same pain.

Cheers - Jim

Personally I use Flickr.com, free 1TB of photo data for each account. I also have the Flickr app on my iPhone, iPad and it comes standard as a button to upload directly with iPhoto on my Mac(s). Makes it kind of too easy to fill up the 1TB.

Anyway, hope you get along with what you have, they are just tools to help navigate the digital waters, some are easier to use than others.
