    Thanks to those that have suggested we try this out. Boca recently gave me the final push to make this happen, thanks mate ;)

    So, right now I'm playing with organization. We can add/take away categories and I might try a couple different things with making it easy to find what we are looking for.

    Yes, we all know this has nothing to do with politics, but a lot of people love to explore photography and view some pics now and then in between heated debates so here you have it!

    Enjoy :)

    All politics and no play makes Jack a boring boy.

    I checked it out. My only complaint: Too many clicks to see the pics.

    Totally open to suggestions. I don't want like 1000 categories, so I started pretty broad, but we can add more if they make sense no problem!

    A "pretty broad", is a good place to start.

    "Upload a File" link below in the reply box if you are trying to post one of your own stored pics.

    Another method is to click on the image icon/on PJ tool bar and copy/paste in the URL of the picture you are wanting to use.

    Thanks Addy, but the URL means the pic has to be on the internet doesn't it? I've been doing that by first uploading to photobucket...the photobucket website ain't so fast...sometimes it doesn't work at all.

    Just the other day it logged me in and when I clicked upload it asked me to login again.

    Very frustrating.

    You're welcome, Boca. Yes, using the URL, means exactly that. I also save pictures to my Pictures Library folder in Windows Live Photo Gallery. This allows me to edit/crop and share... via upload a file option on PJ.
    Wish I could have been of more help. :)

    The PJ media function supports the media sites shown below on the media icon. I use the share function on my (video choice) the properties/url of the video will show on the YouTube site, I then copy/ paste it into PJ media blank space. On Facebook all one has to do is click share and it will show up.
    I have only used the method above on PJ.
    Others on PJ could probably give you a better and easier way. :)
