There is no issue


Freerails is visually presented on whatever screen its viewed on courtesy of HTML

This means especially these days that Freerails is viewed on a huge range of screens

From regular average computer or laptop screens to huge panoramic widescreens

Tablets and suchlike with everything from modest screen sizes to huge megapixel ones

Also the Site is viewed on all manner of cellphones of many different makes and systems


A problem arises with presentation when long lines of text are viewed on different devices

It means that on the same screen a photo can be 800 pixels wide and text 3840 pixels wide

Very long line lengths or huge blocks of text without any line returns prove very hard to read


To improve the readability of Freerails on multiple devices sometimes line returns are added

In every instance the readability and presentation on vastly different screens is improved

How are multiple photos put into a Post from the Members 'Gallery' ?

And do reply photos, from others, need to be from the 'Gallery' so they are visible to non-Members ?

The photos in your 'Gallery' can be COPIED & PASTED into the 'Main Reply Window'.



Click on the Thumbnail of the photo you want to Post, on one of your 'Freerails Members Gallery' Pages ...

... It is then ENLARGED ...

... Then 'Right Click' on the ENLARGED photo & select 'COPY IMAGE' ...

... Then in your open 'Main Reply Window' in another Browser-Tab ...

... Place the cursor where you want your photo to appear & 'Right Click' then select 'PASTE'.

The photo will appear where you've placed your cursor.



Doing this in some spare space between text is a good idea, for appearances sake.

Spare blank line space can be created simply by hitting 'Line Return' a few times.



Likewise 'excess spare blank lines' can be removed by placing your cursor & hitting 'Backspace'.



Clicking on a wrongly placed or unwanted photo in your 'Main Reply Window' will highlight it ...

... Then hitting 'Backspace' will remove it from your 'Main Reply Window'.



Simply repeat the actions described to place more photos in the 'Main Reply Window'



All these moves are just like a Word Processor, or many other simple COPY / PASTE computer actions.

Just experiment with the 'Main Reply Window' & you'll get the hang of it very quickly by experience.



One last fairly important thing is this

Creating 10-Post Pages loaded chock-a-block with photos causes longer loading times

This is annoying for Freerails users viewing with slow internet connections or cellphones


It really is not a good idea to have around more than 20 photos per Page for this reason

There is nothing wrong with Posting just 1 photo in 1 Post and describing it well


Quality and not quantity are worth considering when Posting multiple photos


As for what is invisible to non-Members it is only 'Attachments' that they cannot see
