I'm guessing that is what happycamper is talking about.

OK.. I will try to make it simple..
First when you are posting a pic in a post.. you have to have a link to the photo.
(I'll tell you more about getting that link in a moment)
Above this post area you will see this little Picture icon:
Click on it and it will bring up a box with an area to put the link.
Click ok.. and you pic should appear.

Now this is the harder part. Your picture must be hosted somewhere. This MB does not actually host any pictures. they are all somewhere else. Like with your photo above.. it's hosted at "WebShots". All you have to do is find the link address of the photo.
On webshots.. here's an easy way:
Select the photo you want.. click the thumbnail and display the larger version of the pic.
Then click on the big picture again.
Then select "link to it"
Then across the top of that webshots box you'll see choices for 100, 200, 425, 500 and 600 pixels. Select either 500 or 600 (depends on how big you want the pic to be)
Then copy the link that says: "direct link to image"

This is the link that you will use when you click on: when you are posting the message.

Hey Chuck, thanks! I did click on the image button when I tried before and then put the link for the picture on webshots. However, all that showed up in my post was the dreaded box with an x. I am really tired tonight, so I will look at it again in the morning.
