Posting a picture Answered

What does it mean when it says "main image is required to publish"? Also, how do i do it? I thought it would be in the "attach a thumbnail" segment but i have no idea how to attach an image...

I'm guessing that you are talking about publishing an Instructable? They do require a main image.

To attach an image, you need to upload the image from your computer to your Instructables Image Library. From the library, you should see all the images that you have ever uploaded, and can select the one you want by clicking on the "add" link located below the image. All you need to make sure is that you are on the first thumbnail in a step-by-step Instructable to attach the image to the right place. Then if you'd like to add other images, to other steps, you follow the same process.

You may also notice to the right of the tabs a link that says "More". If you hover your mouse on this, you can find a drop down list of options, and one of those is to preview your Instructable.

The only other advice I can give is to ensure that you click on the "Save" button after any major changes (to ensure you don't lose any of your work).

If you need any more help, let me know.
