    I finally learned that you can't post pics from your personal files.
    So I put them on Yahoo Photos, then copied the image location and put them on.
    I can view them for day or two then they're not on!
    It just has the image location img tag etc.
    I checked my three browsers but they were the same.
    Can anyone Help?
    I'd really appreciate it!

    Here is a link that should help you. Comes from this very section, and the top of the page, posting pictures on forum help here!!

    A file on your computer isn't on the internet (and rightfully so, we don't want to share ALL of our pictures with everyone, do we), so you have to upload it to the internet in order to be able to post it on the forums.

    If you continue to have some trouble, I'll try to pop in during the day to check (I'll be at work), or maybe someone else will help you. Good luck!

    Yahoo photos doesn't allow the images to be posted anywhere. You can only link to the photo. And remember, Yahoo photos will be merged into Flickr this Fall anyway. You can use photobucket or similar.
