How do I delete a photo after uploading it to my post

This is while the post or reply is still in 'preview post'. I cannot delete the thumbnail so I can upload the correct photo I want. I have tried to put in another photo and it worked but the thumbnail is still showing up, that's what I'm trying to delete. Thanks.

Let's say we have this image: httpx://s9.postimg.org/x9ej15ipb/cute_cat_kitten_jeans_the_bed_wallpaper_1920x120.j pg

The thumbnail link we are given is [urlx=http://postimg.org/image/rxzmgfwmj/][imgx]http://s9.postimg.org/rxzmgfwmj/cute_cat_kitten_jeans_the_bed_wallpaper_1920x120.j pg[/imgx][/urlx]


Let's image this is what i want to post:

When you click preview, You see what the post will look like if you submit. Just below that, you will find a text editing box with the original text. You simply delete the thumbnail code in there:

Personally, i like to use httpx://postimg.org/ for uploading pictures because it's simple (not bloated) fast, allows you to upload multiple pictures at a time if you want and creates the codes corectly. When posting i use "Thumbnail for Forums (1)", that's like the thumbnail above.

P.S. To display code, I added "x" in the tags. To make it work, you need to delete all the x-es in the tags. (e.g. [/urlx] changes back to [/url])

@heston: Did you receive the help you needed to delete the photo before you post it?

I came upon another problem while trying to do what you mentioned. I wanted to post a pic and then another pic but I can only post one, when I go back to the paper clip it just keeps giving me the first pic. I wanted two pics so I could try deleting the first one as per your post. Things are just getting more complicated, geesh.

Ok I found the way to post more than one pic at a time. I still don't know how to delete a thumbnail tho. You mentioned I can delete it in the 'preview' mode but how do I delete it after it is already submitted. I'm talking about the photo I do not want after posting one I do want. That's where I'm having the problem.

Thanks.

If you have submited, you have 5 minutes to edit the post. If you look at your reply, in the bottom left corner next to quote, for 5 minutes there will be an additional button called "Edit". Click that, then continue to:

Each image has it's own personal thumbnail code (text), simply add or remove that text to your reply.

If you still have difficulties, please let me know and we'll try a different approach to clarify this. It's really not that hard once you get the hang of it

This is still not working for me, I cannot delete the first picture. I don't see any text for the thumbnail.
