So, Jim and I had some success with his picture in this post.
Here's what we learned. While following the image posting instructions and the image or images is/are successfully uploaded, you have two options. You can 'Post Reply' or 'Preview Reply'. If you select 'Preview Reply' your image(s) do not show up in the preview. However, in the Attachment Manager the number of files you've successfully attached will be shown. If you select 'Post Reply' your images are visible in the post.
Jim, correct me if need be or feel free to chime in with your comments.

I've had some minor issues when dragging photos into the attachment manager box. The progress bar goes all the way to the end, but it doesn't show the photo thumbnail at the bottom. If I close the attachment manager and then reopen it, it will finish the attachment and show the "done" click box"

I have found that the entire system takes patience. I wait until the rotating clock quits before touching any buttons. I don’t try to load more than one photo at a time. As each photo finishes loading I return to the box and load another click on done then post reply.

Well, let's see what else turns up in this discussion. Maybe there will be some other issues and comments that we can forward to the 'Top Guns', aka John and Paul. Heck, that's why they get the big bucks, right?
Yes, let's see if there are additional issues we can address. But let me warn everyone ... I am not a fan of this forum software, but its what we decided a long time ago to go with so here we are. What *i* have learned is that it rarely works out to go beyond the basic instructions. Just follow what we have written in the image uploading guide and don't stray too far from the path. I don't say that in arrogance .... just that things get squirrely and we aren't quite sure what every error is if you get off the track. Do what I do -- don't preview, just hit post and if you need to go back in and edit to fix something, that's fine. It's better than getting sucked into the UBB Black Hole of "Did I do something wrong or is the software just being ornery?" Hint: It's usually the latter.
Paul, once he unfreezes his keister from the throne, may have actual guidance/techie support on this. All I can tell you is what works for me.
We're all just a bunch of old truck guys trying to figure out this interwebby nonsense and doing the best we can. If you are looking for hitech wizard geniuses ... well, you've come to the wrong place.
Except for Paul -- He's a hi-tech wizard genius. I'm just a dope with a box of crayons trying not to drool too much.
