Fascinating that my posts show as 134 on your picture #2 Rick !!

I am surprised by Ron's comments here, and in another thread, about the automatic resizing of pictures - when I make a post I see a screen which tells me that pix must be below 800 x 800 .....:
And I must admit I am confused by the difference between Embedded images and Image Attachments. - tried both and there didn't seem to be any difference?
Neither do I see how to place the picture within text ...... what am I missing?
I do not find the enlarged screengrabs to be as clear as before, either. Straight photos seem to be okay.

I see that 800 x 800 also,............. but if you upload something larger ( certainly in the Image attachments facility) you are informed that your image has been resized automatically to fit within the allowed limits. Brilliant!
Wondering if embedded image means between text, which doesn't work at the moment ( at least for me ) and attached images, i.e. at the end of the text, which do work for me at this time.
This is a test, the image is 1400 x 1100 pixels, it should resize/constrain the image to max XY dimensions of 800 pixels.

After uploading an embedded image, I place my cursor here in the text window before hitting the Insert button that now displays next to the successfully loaded Embedded image.
Now I can add more text under the image, after the Insert button places the embed image.
Here's a screen capture of the Embedded Image - Insert option after the image uploads.

Success with embedding following your lead Mark ...
Yesss .... it works beautifully. Resizes and embeds automatically.
That IS good!
Mark : not quite sure I understand about your "place the cursor" comment, and I can't see it now ....... back to the drawing board for me!
Okay, here I go....

Nope, the embedding thing isn't working for me - but the image attach is... I need more hints, Mark, please

Msg from Mark: Maggi, after hitting Upload on an Embedded Image, it presents a new option next to the list of embedded images, an "Insert" button. Place your cursor in the ext window, where you want the image to go, then click the Insert button for the image you want to appear at your cursor location. Then SAVE and that's it.
Edit - made another try here- took ages to resize the photo ( could have done it quicker myself) and then it showed on the work page but not in the post.....
In fact the pic is STILL showing on the work page..... I am more confused.... will see if it loads this time....
Okay, here I go....
1. type your initial text
2. Click on 'choose file' in embedded images
3. After selecting file click on 'upload'
4. After your initial text, choose where you'd like to embed the image and click there ( i.e.. direct in line or after a return )
5. go back to your image and click insert
6 Carry on with successive text.
7. click on save when complete
Any help or just added to confusion??
That's very clear, Ron, thank you. - it's just not working.........
Aha!!! Yes, thank you, it is.... I found the "insert" box by the pic...... that wasn't clear to me.... thanks! I think I've got it now.....
