Can some fellow member please give me a quick run-down on how to attach pics to a posting? Either I am having a touch of the "stupids" or have misread the directions.
Thanks.

To place a picture in your post you have 3 choices:

1) include it as an attachment, in which case it will appear as a thumbnail at the bottom of the message. Readers will have to click on the thumbnail to see a large size version of the image. To use this option you first open a message window as you normally would to post a message (this requires the Advanced message window). Scroll down below the window to the Additional Options area and find the "Manage Attachments" button; clicking that button will bring up a window which has two options: uploading the file from your computer and uploading a file from a web site with URL address. To attach a file that's on your computer, click the Browse button, locate the file and select it, then click Open and Upload in that order. The file will be uploaded to the THR server. If you know the internet web (URL) address of an image file on another computer you can simply type that address into the Upload File From URL window and click on the Upload button; the file will be uploaded to the THR server as above. Close the Manage Attachments window and note the file name now appears just above the Manage Attachments button. If you now Submit your post, the image will appear as a thumbnail at the bottom of the posting.

2) If you'd like the image to appear in the message body rather than as a thumbnail, upload the file as explained above, then right click on the file name in the Attach Files window above the Manage Attachments button below the message. Select Properties, then highlight the file address in the Properties window (it will begin with [url]http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment...) and select copy from the Edit menu at the top of your browser window. Then click on the image icon at the top of the message window; this will place the image icons (the letters IMG between square brackets,[]) in the message. Place the cursor between those icons: mg]here[/im and select paste from the Edit menu at the top of your browser window.

3) To directly load a file from a third party server, such as Photobucket.com, open your message window, then open a new browser window and go to the Photobucket.com window that has your image files. Beneath the thumbnail of your image will be several options for uploading your file. Select either the Direct Load option or the IMG Code option; the file address will be automatically be copied into your computer memory, either with the IMG codes already attached (the IMG Code option) or without them (the Direct Load option). Then return to your message window and click on the location in the window that you want the image to appear. If you used the IMG Code option all you need to do is select Paste from the Edit menu at the top of your browser window; the address of the file on Photobucket's site will appear in the message between the IMG codes. If you used the Direct Load option you will need to select the image icon at the top of the message window; this will place the IMG codes in the message. You then need to click between the brackets: mg]here[/im and select Paste from the Edit window at the top of your browser window. Again, the address of the file on Photobucket's site will appear in the message between the IMG codes.
