A description of what we are going to do.  Because our host (Forumotion) doesn't store images, we will need to upload your image to the web.  There is an internet picture service called "Servimg" that is integrated into our forum.  So, we upload the image to Servimg and will then post the location of your picture in a post here in the forum.  If you don't understand this, it is okay.  Just follow the instructions below.




First... the simple things.  Find where your picture file is on your computer and start a post in this forum.

Okay, in the posting toolbar, there is a button that, when you hover over it, it will say "Host an Image".  Click on that button.


A window will open up.  In this window, click on the button called "Choose File".  (Notice that, to the right of that button, it says No File Chosen.)


In the next window, Navigate to the picture file, click once on it to select it, then click on the button in this box that says "Open".  That window should close and (where it previously said "No File Chosen" mentioned above), your file name should be there.

Click on the button at the bottom that says "Host it".  When the file has been uploaded to the image service, data will show up in three lines.  Click once in the middle data line next to the label for "Image".  The data should be highlighted in the center line.  Right click on it to select it, then select the "copy" option.  

You have just put all the information needed to post the image into your computer's page buffer.

Right-click in your post and select the "Paste" option.  The instructions for the image are now in your post.  You probably won't see the picture unless you do a Preview or Send, but it IS there.  When you finish your post and click "Send", the picture should be visible in the post.

Wow. That's a lot to remember. I'll have to copy your post before I even try to post a picture. Thanks for the information.
