I use http://photobucket.com i post all my pics there. once the pic is uploaded to photo bucket there is a "Share on blog site" option. copy / paste the link into you message. Easy, and saves space on the CLC server.

I find that one has to reduce the image in size to a manageable size.

Most people leave their Digital Cameras on the highest setting, which can make the images too large for what the websites allow.   10MB is just too large, and I resize mine to something like 250KB, using a program called "PhotoResize", or "Paint Shop Pro".   These programs are easy to use, and allow one to reduce, crop, and resize.

Rob and Bruce are correct. Any photo-hosting website will do. Photobucket will also allow you to crop or re-size photos. Once your photos are uploaded to the internet you can use "Insert Image" (picture frame icon) when writing a post on the CLC Forum to insert your photos.

The forum server doesn't have much disc space for multimedia, that's why I disabled direct uploading. Otherwise we have to delete old photos periodically, and that's not very helpful if you need to search through old threads for information.

Ah ha, so that is where it is.

Have been trying to post the occasional photo, but couldn't find the method, as the original method had vanished.
