    There are a couple of ways to do it, you can upload it to an external site, www.imageshack.us, and get the URL of the image from there. Then you come back here and hit reply, in the reply window click the image that looks like a mountain with yellow background and put the url in there. Or you could just wrap the image tags around the URL of the picture.

    Code:
    [img] [/img]

    If its sitting on your desktop, you need to go to www.imageshack.us and upload it to their servers.



    Once you do, a bunch of URLs will come up giving you links to the picture you just uploaded.



    There are two that say "Thumbnail for forums" I would use the one that says, "Thumbnail for forums(1)":



    Once you have that URL, copy it and paste it into the reply box for the thread, when you do that you will have something that looks like this:








    If you want it to just show up, and not have a thumbnail that links to a picture, do this. After you uploaded the file to www.imageshack.us, scroll to the bottom of the list of links and copy this one:



    Then come back to the forums and in the reply box hit the button that looks like a mountain with a yellow background:



    A window will pop up asking for the "text to be formatted":



    Paste the link you copied into that and click OK, it will then insert the image into the thread, like this:



    Sorry there is a lot to read, but images just make things easier. Good luck, I hope this helps.

    Singapore Indoor Stadium slightly edited in Aperture, white balance and exposure......and a few unsightly floodlights behind the stadium, removed in Photoshop. Thanks again for your help.
