Michael, When I wish to post a photo and some comments I can type in the comments first and then I add the photo. The photo will take a few moments to appear in the box and it comes in as a code. Once you see the photo code and your comments all in the box then you can click on the add comment box and it should all appear together as a posting.
I have also posted the photo in the box first and again it appears in a code.
