I'm sure this has been asked and answered before, but I can't figure it out, so I am turning to the others here for help. How do I attach picture files to a thread?

I was very happy with myself for figuring it out.

Set up an account at (free), upload some photos, then copy and paste the line of script under the image with the [img] thingies in it.

There are two ways. First is the method that shows an attachment as a link that you must click to see the image. This feature is done through the "manage attachments" button (under additional options) when composing a message.

The 2nd method allows the photos to be viewed as shown above, as part of the message itself. To do this, the image must be on some website and you need to know how to access or display the image. You can use a site like Photobucket which is easiest for most folks. If you have your own web page, you may be able to upload photos to it and display them by using the URL address. In either case, you can use the "Insert Image" button on the message composition window or the [ IMG ] ... [ /IMG] tags to display the image.

Hope that helps.
