You need to put the pics on a webhosting site first etc. i know Tony has had some problems with photobucket recently and there are plenty of others. I'm sure others will come along with recomendations. Once uploaded your picture will have a code to use when posting on forums which will have various bits of stuff inbetween image tags i.e. [img][/img] copy and paste that into your post and it should work. You might want to resize your image so its not too big or too small - I would recommeded previewing your post first to check it has worked.

That's probably not the clearest explanation, if it's a bit murky, i'm sure someone else will explain it better.

Two ways. First way if you want to just host one image at a time to the forum, go into the Post Reply window by hitting the Post Reply button. Then find the button that says Host an Image when you roll over it with the mouse cursor. This will let you host pictures at servIMG.com, which is a little free what? Picture hosting site, right.
Then when you have this little window, you use the Browse for Image line to find the picture on your computer, and upload it. Once it's uploaded it will show you several lines of code. Hit the COPY button at the last line and then hit the button that looks like a little photo and paste the code you copied in there.







If you have your pictures already hosted somewhere, Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa, etc. You will normally right click on the picture (have the photo hosting site open in a second window while you're doing all this) then copy the image location, then just hit the little photo button as per the above instructions, just leaving out the first part about the uploading, and paste the code you just copied.
Any less confused now?

MerlinMike, I fixed your first post. You were almost there, you were just missing the first [img] tag.
