Mike,

You can save on the timeouts by using "Wordpad" or "Notepad" (both are Windows programs) to create your post off-line, then copy and paste your post into the reply box here on the forum. Once your post is pasted into the reply box, then you can insert the photos wherever you want them in your post. To insert the photos, you can also have the link (URL) already in the post, then just highlight the link and click on the "insert image" icon up above (fourth from left above the smileys).

I hope this helps!

cheers eh?

If you photos are an attached file the only option is for them to be below all the text.  If you set up a gallery and you can link them in the text so you can have them wherever  you want in the post. 

Not sure what the problem might be on the time out issue but Johns idea is right on.  Many times I will make a post while offline and save it using Microsoft Word then post it when I get online later.
