How do I delete Photos I have uploaded to the forum?

Question

OK, team mates.  I'm stuck.  We can all upload photos to post in forum threads.  They accumulate in an area labeled "Attachments".  I don't think I ever knew until tonight that there's a limit to how many photos we can upload, but apparently there is.  So... once we hit the limit (I just did), how do we remove ones that we no longer need?  I don't want to delete posts, just empty photos from my "Attachments" that I no longer need. I can't find instructions anywhere.  Does anyone have a clue?

OMG!  And here I have been making a hobby of finding funny or illustrative images and attaching them.  Yikes!

EDIT:  I just tried going to the post the picture appears in, Inspecting the HTML and deleting the reference to the image therein.  That removes the picture from the post, but not from my Attachments library.

Yup, that's all I could do too.  However .... this morning I can upload photos again.  The mystery is not solved, but my panic level has dropped.  Either I was doing something stupid last night ( unthinkable!) or SL was just up to another of its unannounced tricks.  For now, disaster has been averted.  If it happens again, I'll raise a fresh alarm. 

Thanks, Lindal. ;)

I've always assumed there was no limit on forum image storage as until the post goes away the image should remain. The Lindens seems to archive forum posts forever.

I tend to use Flickr for those images I plan to share here or elsewhere. So, I have very few in the Forum Attachments.

There may not be a limit after all.  Nobody I checked with seems to think there is one, so I must have screwed up somehow.  All better now.

Oh...this is somewhat off topic, but for those who like finding image content on the internet, but don't like having to pay for stock photos...I just found a great FREE image service, Unsplash.

I still think that you just hit the 'per post' limit -- max of 4.88 mb of pics in a single post.
