    Do you have an upload button? It might need a minimum number of posts or account age maybe

    Sorry for the delay in responding but I have been away.

    I tried the 'Upload a File' button but every time I get an error:

    The following error occurred
    There was a problem uploading your file.
    'name of image.jpg'

    I cannot upload the error image for the same reason.

    I have tried other file formats.

    Can anyone thow any light on what is happening or what I am doing wrong please.

    Neale.

    OK finally sorted it. Converted the images to png which worked.

    Thanks for the pointer.

    Tried jpg (3+MB from smartphone) - same error. Saved through "Paint" as png - same error. Only after cropping and reducing file to 500KB size I was able to upload jpg. There is nothing about size limit in error text.

    Personally, I tend to upload images to imgur and then link from there. ShareX is a useful tool for automating that workflow, to the point where you can screen grab, then receive the URL and paste that in using the image link tool.
