    Go to the top of this page and look for "Uploads" and click on this icon. Now hit the "browse" button and find your pictures on your harddrive. Now double click on picture and the URL will be listed in the File area on the "Upload" page. Now hit the submit button on the "Upload" page and your picture will be accepted if it is the correct size. When you want to show a picture in a thread you go to your "uploads" and highlight the image section and right click and select "copy", now when you are at the thread you right click and select "paste" and your picture will be in your post. Hope this helps...

    If you have a Photobucket account (it's free) you can store your pictures there. When you are ready to add a pic to your post on the forum you will:
    -- go to your Photobucket account and choose the picture that you want to add to your forum posting (resize it if it is too large)
    --click on the IMG Code that is under the pic--this will "copy" the pic
    --return to your post on the forum and "right click" within the body of your post
    -- choose "paste" from the drop down menu....this will add your pic to the post (it won't show up as a picture until you submit your post, it will only show up as a link)
    --your pic should be in the post when you submit it

    I didn't know how to do it the way that the previous poster said to do it so I gave it a try and this is my attempt--very easy!!
