If you want to add a picture from your hard disk then you need to use the Attach File option at the bottom of the reply screen. If you click on Browse and locate the image file on your hard disk in the dialogue box that pops up your file name should appera in the Attach File window below. When you hit Submit Reply your image file will be uploaded and added to the end of your post.

If you want to link to a picture which you have uploaded to the gallery then the best way is to go to the gallery, right click on the image you want to link to bring up the properties window, copy the file name of that image and paste it into the following line (without the quotes or spaces)

"[ gallery]myfile.jpg[ /gallery]"

If you want to add an image from the Internet use the IMG button above the Reply window. This will bring a pop-up dialogue box to the top of the screen. You can paste the URL for the image you want to attach into that box and it will be inserted in your post.

Those three methods have worked for me- there may be other ways to do it as well. Try to ensure that your image and file size is the minimum which will do the job, large images take longer to download and may also mess up the page formatting, requiring readers to scroll across the window to see all the image and red subsequent posts.

Hope that helps.


I'll move your post to the Site Suggestions forum.
