You choose the picture off your camera roll and when it has process you press the little share button and then you copy the second line on that list. Paste that into the message field on DU and you get a picture. Welcome to DU

Northern Michigan here too, right outside the Huron National Forest.

Postimages.org is an easy place to post pics from. Pick ‘direct link’. It’ll copy the link all you gotta do is paste that link in your post. I’ll upload the original picture file then set to 640x480 for message boards. Doesn’t change your original file but make it easier for those of us that don’t have high-speed internet. Pictures load quicker.

in the UP on the Cisco chain of lakes in Watersmeet. Use to snag salmon in my younger years at Ludington.

Edited to add Post Image is the site most used to post pictures on DU.

I grew up in Charlevoix but live in Lansing now. Love it up there but too many MAGAts. Glad to see northern Michigan represented!

Interesting that you fell trees and grow Bonsai.

I would like a Bonsai. So cool they are.

The Brooklyn Botanical Garden has a beautiful collection of Bonsai. Even seen a few with their full size flowering blossoms.
