A lot of people have trouble posting pictures, so I'll explain how.

When you do a "Quick Reply" you can only enter text. You need to click the "Go Advanced" button to get more options.

On the Advanced screen scroll down to Additional Options and click the "Manage Attachments" button.

A window will pop up (allow popups for this site) which allows you to select pictures from your local computer's hard drive and upload them using the "Browse" button.

Please note that there are size limitations (both dimensions and file size) for the particular file types, as well as restrictions to what file typs are allows. These are all shown in this popup window. Scroll down if necessary.

If the picture is too large a message should be shown indicating this after you press "Upload"

If they're too big and you don't know how to do this on your computer, go to www.shrinkpictures.com, select your picture, select Custom 1024 dimension, BEST, resize, then save it/them locally and try again.

Finally, if you'd like to embed images inline in your message, you can use the icon with the paperclip on it to select images to insert, and the proper syntax and id for the image will be inserted where the cursor is (and you can then move this around if needed)
