Below the message box (when you are posting a new message or replying) is the Attachment Editor. There is a place where you can Browse (on your computer) to the location of the file which you want to upload. Once you find it, you select the UPLOAD button.Select relatively small images in jpg format and you should be good to go.Hope that helps.

I use the graphic editor called Irfanview - a very powerful, yet free program.You can get it here:http://www.irfanview.com/Be sure to download the fre "plugins" for it also.With it you can do almost everything most of the payware programs can do (and a few things they cannot).Good Luck!

Good luck attaching your piccy,s once you do it once it will seem simple , but can I just add when you do attach them do it as a list i.ePicture 1 jpgPicture 2 jpgPicture 3 jpgRather than Picture 1 jpg Picture 2 jpg Picture3 jpgIt makes it easier for those of us who are not viewing the forum on a cinema screen :( Mark
