I have been on the forums for a long time and I don't remember posting any photos. So I thought I would add a few but can't work out the easiest way to do it? Is there any instructions? Paul

The forum does not currently support image uploads. It is something we are hoping to add eventually.

In the meantime, just add your photos to a free online image service like Photobucket or Imageshack, and use the link there when making your post on this forum.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Chris, Now to take some photos then have a crack at adding them. Can I add them from Facebook or a blog which I just might start?

I think that as long as you link to the photo's actual web location you'll be fine.

Also you probably know this already, but I thought I might mention it

Be sure to use the picture link button on the reply window. The one that looks like a polariod picture. By using this it will make sure you have the correct coding for the forum, just copy and paste the URL into the source box.

Here's how you do it in a little more detail:

Click the little icon that looks like a Polaroid photo. A window that says 'Source' will show up.

Copy and paste the web location of the photo you want to use into the box of the Source window. (The web location begins with http:/)

Click OK. Another screen will come up that says "Alternative Text', this one allows you to label the photo. Type whatever you want to call the photo here, then click OK.

The photo is now attached to the post. You can keep typing, and when you are done with the post, click 'Post Reply'.

That should do it!
