    What I do and the best way for me is that I upload my pics on Photobucket.com or something like them and open up my pics, hit the IMG button which copy it, come here and in the reply box right click which is copy and paste and hit post and the their goes your pics. It work for me but try that and let us know, the pics you have on your computer is a little different but I can walk you through that if needed.

    Go to Photobucket or similar site where your pics are.

    Copy them.

    Click Reply to Post

    Click the Insert Image button on the header. It's the one that looks like a picture.

    Click on Insert URL

    Right click and paste and viola! Stupid stuff like this comes up

    You really don't have to go to all that trouble with Photo Bucket. If you click on the image that says insert image on the reply to thread (or quick reply) you will be instructed how to insert any photo from your computer files.

    Nice thing about photo bucket is if you remove the photo from the Photo bucket site its gone.

    Of course, the thing about "Photobucket" type sites is: if they go poof!, then your photos are gone as well. Yahoo's photo service dissolved back when, IIRC, as did UsGunOwner more recently.



    Most straightforward is to simply ensure you've got full editing controls configured in the forums settings area, then in any given post you're making clicking on the <image> icon. It'll prompt you for whether to grab the photo from your computer or a URL. Just be sure to have a fairly lean and mean copy (size-wise, dimensionally and bytes) before you try to grab it. Those ultra-wide 1024pix images don't work well on forums, particularly with how many people use mobile devices.

    ... with the subtext of: Guard stoned while stones guarded; Run on bongs at local hookah shops impacting supply.

    And, on the "breaking news" interruption during daytime television: Bong supply dangerously low. Photos at 11.

    That's too much info, Stove. I'm assuming you're the guy in the background, over yonder.

    BTW, say 'hello' to Auntie for me.
