I'm new to the forum and want to share a WIP map of modern-day sports bar. It's not fancy, but I've got to start somewhere. I'm trying to find directions for uploading. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I am new to the forum and have never uploaded an image yet..... but if you use this quick reply box in the tool bar above their is a button that looks like a picture of a tree (if you mouse over it says 'image'). You can use it to upload from your PC or from a website. I know their is a size limit so if it gives you an error you may have to shrink the resolution.

If you use the Go Advanced controls then you'll find a paper clip icon in the toolbar when you're composing your post. Click that and it opens the Attachment Manager window. You can upload your images there.

When you want to place the images in your post, click the arrow beside the paperclip and you'll see a list of your attachments. You can select each one and place them in the text as you're composing your post. You can attach a maximum of 5 images to a given post.

Okay, I went to the Attachment Manager and tried to upload my map. I got an error message telling me it's an invalid file. This is an FCW file from CC3. Do I need to change the format or something?

The following is supported :) ... so try "save as" - the most common format here is jpg cause everybody can see that without having to open any programs. :)

OK, for CC3 maps, the FCW is just the CC3 format for saving the file. To save the image as something everyone else can see (even as an FCW file I would need to open in CC3 to view it), you can do as I do and save as a rectangular PNG or JPEG image. Then you can upload that type of image to the forum.

If you really want to share the source FCW you will have to zip it first and upload the zip.
