If they're on you computer you should have a space which says 'Drag files here to attach!' You can grab the picture and drag them into that box with the dotted lines below the text box. Alternatively, hit the icon above the text box that looks like a paper clip. That will prompt you to search your computer for the image to attach that way.

Hope it helps!

I maybe wrong but you have to post a certain amount before you can include photo's.

If I recall correctly, in advanced reply, Under the text box (where you write the messages such as this) there should be a section "Drag and Drop File Upload" drag and drop a file into that from your laptop and it should upload once you hit submit reply.

He has more than enough posts so posting pictures should be no problem. However Depending on the size of the picture file it may be rejected because it is too big. I use google Picasa to store my pictures and view them on the computer. This program has an export function that will reduce the picture file to a smaller size and allow you to import that file in a regular text site. But there is a limit of picture size for the forum. Contact one of the Mods here for the information.

Does anyone know how to rotate an image once you've dragged & dropped? Some of my pics turn on their side for some reason.

Never mind, I think I figured it out. There is a pixel height restriction on images, so once I cropped them down they didn't rotate.

Click on "Go Advanced;" then either the paper clip or "Manage Attachments." From there you can have the choice to upload photos directly from your laptop or from a picture host (url).

Hope this helps.
