June 19th Community Update
On June 19th, we released multiple upgrades to the Power Apps Community that included new features and changes to the UI. For instance, you can now drag and drop files instead of having to browse for their location to upload them:
When posting in galleries you will now see that you can add a Thumbnail image and attachments. If you are editing an older gallery post, you will need to add the thumbnail image before posting.

We have made some major updates to one of our support articles, 'Asking, Answering, and Accepting'. The article is now called 'Contributing to the Community' and has new information on what to do if your post is marked as spam and how to use the galleries. Here’s another neat feature: You can actually speed up the image insertion process by copying and pasting the image into the upload field. Curious how you can do this? Read our updated article:
