    There is a tutorial on here somewhere...

    Unless you are a subscribing member, you can't post attachments.

    You have to upload the picture somewhere else (photobucket, flickr, etc) and link to it.

    When you post one, it should look like this:

    I'll use Photobucket in this example, it's probably the easiest anyway - since it has the "IMG code" already on the link...


    OK-

    Go to photobucket.com and create an account.

    There will be a button you can press to upload images. Press that, select images, upload.

    After the upload, there will be a screen where you can add descriptions or titles. That's optional. Click on one of the "save & continue" buttons (there will be 2 - one goes back to the album, the other goes to the pictures you just uploaded).

    When you look at the thumbnails of your pictures, you will see this:
    [​IMG]

    Copy the text I have highlighted there and paste it into a thread.

    It already has the IMG tags on it, so all you have to do is copy & paste.
