The new Sailnet Community allows to add up to 3 images to any new thread or reply.
Below are the instructions on how to add images to your threads and
First - Graphical Images are limited to 50k in size and 800 x 600 pixels. We allow for the uploading of .jpg .gif .jpe .jpeg and .bmp images.
In addition we allow the uploading of pdf files up to 100k in size.
We will be adding an automatic image resizing feature in the next few week, so for the time being please resize your large images before uploading them to Sailnet so that they do not exceed the defined limits.
To attach images to your posts select the
button in the Quick Reply Box or if you are starting a new thread click on the Manage Attachments button in the "Additional Options" displayed below the "Post New Thread" screen (see below)

When you click the "Browse" button (see below) - a new window will open that allows you to select images from your computer for uploading.
