  •  Uploaded it where? (5+ / 0-)

    I uploaded it to Photobucket, because that's listed as one of the approved hosting sites for dkos... And there my troubles began, because for whatever reason Photobucket doesn't work very well on my computer.

    •  Right to Kos, if I understand it (5+ / 0-)

      When you open a new diary, right next to the intro box on the right side is a smaller box. It has:

      IMAGE QUEUE (what is this)
      Add an image, then drag to place in story
      UPLOAD FILES  Image Library

      I'm working in Safari. When I click on UPLOAD FILES button, a dialog box opens, and I pick the file directly from my computer to upload. It usually takes a few seconds.

      Once it does, there's a little thumbnail, and two options:
      Embed in story
      Open in Image Library

      Underneath are options to fill in to add tags and info to the file.

      I usually click on Embed in story after filling out the tags, whereupon the html coding to place the picture gets pasted right into the very top of the intro box, after I click through a few options in the dialog box that appears. I can then cut and paste the html codes to where I want the image to appear.

      This is how I'm doing it anyway. I expect there are easier ways, but it works for me. I'm not uploading it to photo bucket or elsewhere - just going right from my computer to Kos. I expect the FAQ has more detail on this, and if anyone else wants to amplify or correct me, feel free.
