Hello,
You can't upload photos directly to the forum, you have to use a photo hosting website.
Most people on here use postimages.org to host their photos. For instructions, read this thread (9th post):

:goodluck:

Andrew.

This should be a sticky really, it's by far the easiest way -


This assumes you have a pic on your computer (for example on your desktop) already -

1. Go to https://postimages.org/ (you do not have to be a member or login)
2. Click Choose Images
3. Browse to the pic you wish to use and double click it (or click once and click Open)
4. Copy the Direct Link in the list (i.e. click the symbol on the right or highlight it and press Control-c)
5. Open up a new message window on here (as if to type your reply/new message, or whatever, as you normally would)
6. Type your message and when done click the Img button and then press Control-v (this will paste the link you previously copied in step 4)
7. Press Preview to see how it will look or Submit, and you're done.
