Pictures are worth a thousand words. They can really help to illustrate an issue and possibly get to an answer quicker.

TOOLS
A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words
Take the time to install and used one of these tools and you will greatly accelerate the time to address your issue:
Here are a few helpful documentation links:
WINDOWS
• Animated GIF tool for Win including editing of the GIF: http://www.screentogif.com/
• You will need a server to put your animated GIF’s on https://www.dropbox.com/install or http://www.google.com/drive/
• If you are on Win 10 you can get a FREE Video Screen capture tool form the Windows App Store called "Gambar" . It records the screen and sound.
• Windows 7-10 support a built-in application PSR.exe that is a FREE step recorder, and it grabs snapshots of your screen every time you click the mouse along with details about you versions, etc.
• OBS is a free screen recorder for both Mac and Windows. https://obsproject.com/

MAC
• Animated Gifs for Win or Mac https://www.cockos.com/licecap
• You will need a server to put your animated GIF’s on https://www.dropbox.com/install or http://www.google.com/drive/ or https://imgur.com/
• OBS is a free screen recorder for both Mac and Windows. https://obsproject.com/

To take pictures of the screen on Mac:
-Shift+Command+3 (Whole Screen) You can then open the picture and edit, drawn on it, crop, etc.
-Shift+Command+4 (cropped Screen)
-Shift+Command+4+Spacebar (click to select window)

There is currently a limit of 800 x 600 for Mac users only on OPTION 2 using the PreSonus sever.

The forum (for Windows users) has been improved to handle much larger pictures/images without truncating. They automatically resize so the entire image may be seen in your post. This is great for phone viewing as well. Depending on the size or position within the image you want to draw attention to determines the best way to add an image.

You have a few options for making images available:

OPTION ONE (Use a Third-party image/video server)

1) Embed Image using URL link.

Pros: Provides a cleaner look for the layout and aligning images with text.
Cons: Requires you to upload to a server first. It may be too small to see the issue on some screens.

This approach requires the image to be on a public server that generates a URL to embed in your post. The URL itself must end with a known image type like png, gif or jpg, etc. Image hosting sites such as PostImage, Dropbox, and Screencast will provide you a URL such as:

Image

Use the image embedding button to wrap around the provided URL for your image.

The result should look like this:
Image

The embedded image will resize to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide and minimum the size of your phone screen.

OPTION T WO (Use a PreSonus forum server)
2) Image Attachment

Pros: You can use the upload attachment feature (see below) and Forum server to upload and store your image. The image can be displayed in full size by clicking on it and it's scrollable.
Cons: Unless the "Place Inline" option is used, the image is not displayed within the text of your post and is only viewable in the attachment display window.

3) Embed Attached Image

Pros: You can use the upload attachment feature and Forum server to upload and store your image. You can place inline or embed the image using the steps below. The image can be displayed in full size by clicking on it and it's scrollable.
Cons: Aligning images with text is not as easy as in the first option. It also has a side effect of showing the image twice as It will be displayed within your post and also in the attachment window.

This approach does not work well for animated GIFs.
This is a variation of approach (2) to get around the animated GIF issue where you:
a) First, attach the image.
b) Open the image (using the eye icon) and copy the PreSonus server URL link.
c) Paste/embed that URL into the post.

BONUS
But wait my Animated Gifs don't animate if I upload to the PreSonus server!
Here is the trick.
Upload you GIF, then preview the GIF. It will pop up in another window with a private PreSonus URL. Copy that URL and then past it into the body of the post with and Image tag.
