You have the ability to upload images along with your posts. SGReefer's image size restrictions are very

generous. All images will be automatically resized to fit within constraints unless they're enormous if that's

the case please resize before uploading or contact us for help.

To add an attachment simply click “upload File” and browse for the file on your computer. You will

then have the option of inserting a thumbnail or full size image. Thumbnails are best to be considerate

of members with slow connections. If you don't chose either thumbnails will automatically be placed

at the bottom of the post.
