  2. You can hit the IMG button to embed an image link into the thread (look up). I believe you can see these pictures in the thread.

    Or you can attach a file (look down). You won't see the image that is attached.

    If you have pics on a disc, the first thing to do is attach them one at a time to a post. One attachment per post. Open up a new post ( either "new thread" or "post a reply").

    When the screen opens up, you'll see a window in the middle and below it is "Attach file"

    click on the "browse" button and
    go to wherever you have the pics (A: (or B:) drive if it's on a floppy. You can pull from a CD-Rom or hard drive, you can also pull from websites).


    Select the pic.
    If there's no text in the main box, type a letter (without at least one character in the window you'll get a message) and
    click "submit reply" when you're ready to post.

    The trick to displaying the pic after you've posted an attachment is to...

    click on the attachment in the post.

    A new window will open with the picture displayed.
    Copy the URL of the pic's window (you can highlight the URL with the mouse and use the Ctrl-C keystroke).

    Edit the post, click on the IMG button
    press Ctrl-V to paste the URL and press enter. Save changes.

    Once you've done this a few times you'll realize how simple it actually is. Just takes a lot of typing to explain it. Let us know if that helps.

    You may want to print this out beforehand.

    I went back and edited my post. I copied the URL from your picture and then pasted in this thread using the "IMG" button :)

    Nice bass. Atelier Z?

    I used the second part of my instructions to copy the URL and then paste it into a post using the "IMG" button.

    I dont click the attachment and open it.

    I RIGHT click over the attachment and select
    'copy Shortcut', then click edit/delete on the post and hit IMG and type CTRL+V and then save.

    my little trick.
