If I'm not mistaken you'll have to upload them to a provider online and post links in your posts. I use

When you are in the reply dialogue page there is an icon that opens the little box where you can insert the URL for your picture. The picture needs to be on a public web site. So your URL will be something like “” your image will be something like myimage.jpg that would be the file name. so the entire URL will be “” I see a lot of people using photobucket which frankly I can’t tell you anything about because I’ve never used it but presumably It’s the same sort of thing. For example I have a website called and I have some images on that web site so to see one of those images you just have to put the address complete with file name into a browser. If you put the address inside image tags which is what the little utility does it will pull the image into your post from your web site. I would put the image tags in this post but I think the server would parse the tags and try to find the image and not actually show you what the tags look like.

Here is a sticky I made on my site - It will work on all the gun forums:

First, make sure that the photo is not too HUGE.

Then, upload it to this site:

There are other similiar sites, but you do not need an account at this site.

Then, copy the exact URL of the photo.

Next, come here and put the "[IMG]" tag on the front

and "[/IMG]" tag on the rear of the picture link.


Leave NO spaces between the link and the tags!

And, that's all there is too it
