You can insert an image by clicking the "paperclip" Insert an Image File icon at the bottom of the message window.

The forum will ask for the location of the image; that will be on your local computer's hard drive. Browse to that file, and click Upload File.

Note: the file formats that are supported are JPG and BMP. Your image size cannot exceed 75 Kb.

I will also add that if your photo is hosted on another site, you can link the image from the original site to a posting using the tags.


I have a picture of Dan Smith's lovely green 6.3 on my www.w108.org home page.
If I right click with the mouse on that image and go to properties, I will get the location of the image (URL).
I can then copy this to the posting in between the image tags to show in such a manor.
[ img] picture location (in this case http://www.w108.org/gallery/albums/w108/18_jpg_03.sized.jpg) [ /img] where [ /img] closes the tag.

Note that I have added a white space after the "[" this is so that the tag will appear instead of being treated as code. The space between the "[" and IMG will need to be removed for the browser to treat the tag as a special command.

Above is an example of an image that I have linked, if you use the quote button, you should see the correct syntax for the picture.

Why would I use this method instead of the attachment?

1) I won't be constraint by the size limitations
2) It will save space on the local server
3) I can add text inline (before and after the picture) if I want to use the picture to describe something.

If I failed to explain this well enough, please see here: http://www.htmlkit.com/minit/pages/imgtag1.html
