You can attach photos to your message when you Reply or Post A New Topic. The photo must be a file on your computer. You can attach JPG, GIF, and PNG photos. Sorry, but you can NOT attach other types of files for security reasons.

Step 1: Under the box where you type your message, you will find this:
Upload Attachment area
Capture1.JPG (19.75 KiB) Viewed 5902 times

Step 2: Click "Browse". A dialog box will open. Hunt around your computer until you find the photo file. Then highlight it, and click "Open"
File Upload box

Step 3: Now you'll see:
Upload Attachment area has changed
Capture3.JPG (19.29 KiB) Viewed 5902 times

Step 4: Click "Add The File"
The Upload Attachment Area will now be the same as it was in Step 1, but a new area "Posted Attachments" will appear in the middle.
Posted Attachments area

You can type in a File Comment that will appear under the photo.

That's all there is to it. You can attach up to 3 photo files to a single message - just repeat the procedure. These photos will all appear at the bottom of your posting - this may not be exactly what you want, but it will get you started. Sometimes, like when you're giving step-by-step directions, it's important to have the photos interspersed with the text - as with this posting! We'll show you how to do that in another message - How To Post Photos - Advanced
