I have tried over and over to post pics from the PR photo album, but here's the problem: I upload the photos, they show up in a list in bold red print, but when I go to add an image to a message board post, I'm asked for a url. I assume that means the url for the photo album, but when I go back to that, the photos are gone! I upload them again, same problem. The intro tells you to start a directory, but not how to do that. And the the other instructions aren't much help either. This is embarrassing! I'm not a new user, and I know I should have mastered this by now, but I'm stumped. Could it be because I'm using a Mac?

No. I have a Mac. I did figure it out once- years ago. But soon realized that PR doesn't offer enough space to store them- you will run out after uploading just a few. I think after uploading I went to the URL bar at the top of the page that showed my uploaded pic and copied that. But I'm not sure.

The best answer is to use another site like Picasa or Flickr or whatever you normally use. Then capture that URL and paste it into the message. Most of them display the Photo URL to share with others, but if not, you can copy it from the top of the page. It makes it easier to launch a second Safari window and move back and forth between the photo in one window and the PR page in the other.
PS- I agree the photo instructions need to be written clearly. I think I emailed [email protected] and they sent me the details of how to upload and link correctly.

sewing brings joy and meaning to my life...
