Good Morning!!

At the very bottom of your original or reply screen is an "Attach File" space with a "Browse" button next to it.

Simply click Browse, and you can browse your computer for your picture. Once you have found it, click on it, and it will then appear in the formerly blank box.

Hit "submit" and it should appear, as I hope this pic of heartbreak hill fo the Santa Fe Century does.

I will know in a minute if I got it right :D

Later - yep, I did it ok!!

There is a file-size limitation - I think it's 100k. If your file exceeds this limit, you'll need to either:

- Shrink the picture
- Lower the resolution
- Change the file format
- A combination of the above

You can do some of this by using programs a simple as Microsoft Paintbrush. Alternatively, there are a bunch of shareware-based programs available on the net that will allow you to modify image files in a variety of ways. You can look for these programs here:

Good luck, and please post your pix when you're able! :)

One other thing -- there's a bug (IMO) with the forum software where if you use the 'Preview Reply' button after selecting an attachment the attachment won't show up when you post the message. I'm not sure if that got fixed with the recent forum upgrade or not...
