Thought that might be the case. Just hadn't been able to find anything saying that. Thanks.

An easy way to post photos to Boards
1-Click here--> http://tinypic.com/ a page opens with" load Images & Videos."

2-Click the "Browse" box. (It's the gray box at the far right of File: line) "Browse" takes you to your computer files and images.

3-Find the photo you want to load and double click the name or image of your photo. That will automatically load the information to Tinypic.

4. Go down to "Resize" and CLICK ON THE "DOWN ARROW" to the right then click on "MESSAGE BOARD (640x480)

5-Click "Upload Now." A SCREEN WILL APPEAR AND YOU NEED TO TYPE IN THE
WORD OR WORDS THAT APPEAR, THEN CLICK ON "UPLOAD NOW"
"Uploading ... Please Wait" appears at Tinypic.
The new page is "Share This Image."

6-Put your cusor in the yellow area of the 2nd line down " IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" Left click once with your mouse and the words change to black.
7. Right click and select the word "Copy" from the gray box choices.

8. Return to the Discussion Board and "Paste" in the Reply Box if you've already started a post.

You can review the photo, before posting, by clicking on "Prewiew Post" under the message board.

Let me see if I can explain it since the procedure has changed somewhat lately. The following is how you do it with Windows..........

Download your pic.
After the D/L is complete, you have a chance to give it a title.
Click on the thumbnail pic you are looking at and a menu will pop up on the right as the pic opens to full size.
There are a few choices, so click on 'image' which is right above 'thumbnail image'.

You have copied the pic the moment you clicked on 'image'.
Now return to your post in the forum and pick the place you want to place the image.
Right click and then click 'paste'.
Repeat for up to 5 images in a single post..... I believe that is the limit.

It is important to be able to upload pics to your questions etc here. We cannot upload photos directly to the forum server as there is not enough space for that. So the only alternative is to use any of the free public photo-sharing sites such as PhotoBucket, TinyPic, etc.

I have used only PhotoBucket myself and i notice that it is becoming more complex all the time; and the procedures for posting photos there are always changing. This certainly makes it more difficult for new guys. Best you can do i think is to spend a few hours figuring out how these sites work.

I use MIHOV http://www.imageresizer.com/

It's a downloadable program that I think is still a free download.
Once you get used to a program for re sizing photos it becomes second hand thoughts in doing it.
