Thank you, OhLook. (Damsel comes to aid of gentleman in distress! :) )
I did encounter two other problems if you can help on that please :-
1. When I brought the image into the posting it said image too large! Well, the image was only just over 2Mpix and 1600 pix in the largest side. So I reduce the file sixe to less than 2 Mpix and it loaded. What file sizes do we need?

2. When we click the image for full-screen view - How do we escape back to the posting?

I haven't found the answer. The "back" command goes too far back. It skips the post and returns to the thread list. The < , when present in the large view, goes to another image, which I suppose is in the poster's gallery.

Thanks OhLook. I can’t even find the threads that I left comments in - they’ve got lost in cyberspace.

I don't understand about the "Back" comment. Why would you be clicking an image for full screen? It should already be full screen unless it has been posted incorrectly?
Once you insert your image, you click Post Comment.

If it was posted as a thumbnail.

I found out today by trial and error. Close the window.

EDIT: Later, for a different full view, closing the window did too much. It quit Firefox. Tried something else, tapping the full-view image. That worked.

And why would it be? Some afterthoughts: To save bandwidth. To show the image in the context of others in your gallery; not sure, there's a lot I don't know about how posting works here. Or maybe you want to post something as a reference, like a simple map or diagram, that doesn't need full display. Or a comment in photographic form, like these:

Thanks joayne and OhLook. I will get to grips with this - - sometime!
The change has come as too much of a culture shock and my brain cell is in a spin! :)

Oh here you are Ray, your UN is slightly different from POTN so I didn't find you. You can't avoid me that easily! 😀
 
The classics are the best.

I used to travel there a lot for work. Took quite a few pre-breakfast walks to find her.
Years ago when I was in Brussels I wanted to see the famous Manneken Pis.

So I walked all over the place and when I finally found it I looked at my buddy and said ”that’s it?” Kind of underwhelming.

Wilmington Village War Memorial. Wilmington - County of Kent - UK.
This memorial located in the grounds of the Old village infant/primary School which I attended when we were living within 100yds of the school.
Reading through the list of names on the memorial and in the link below I recognise many of the family names and can remember some of the family members in person. So sad really - those that were left would never have forgotten.
