i had this problem when i started,first upload pictures from camera to you'r computer,then upload them to an online image sharing site sutch as photobucket (other image shareing sites exist) ,most give you a sertain amount of space free.lastley get a link code from the image shareing website ,copy and paste it to the page you want the images on .it sounds complicated but its easy once you get the hang of it.good luck

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

Use the "Add attachment" facility found below your posting page. If it won't let you upload your image because it is HUGE it will tell you so, in which case you will have to host it elsewhere as Dadio suggests.

As CW says the option he has provided is best just down size them a bit to fit

A neat little programme is windows image resizer, install it and when you right click on a photo on your pc it will allow you to resize to 640x480 which is ideal for forums. You can download it here (about 3/4 of the way down the page on right hand side.)
You can also use Image Shack to host pics, upload pic to here then use the IMG button on here and paste in the 'direct link' text from the image shack site. You can also resize when you upload there

i put mine on a facebook account then copy the "image location" and its here! IF u just copy the link you will need to log on to facebook to see it, but copying the location gets around this!
