Default Posting Photos to the Forums

Go to the forum or thread where you want to make a post that will include a photo or photos (you can upload up to 5 photos in one post).

If you are in a thread that already contains some posts, scroll down to the message box (Quick Reply) at the end of the thread.
1. Click on the Go Advanced button below the message box.
2. Type in the text of your message in the new message box.
3, Scroll down to the Additional Options area.
4. Click on the Manage Attachments button.
5. A new window will open. Click on the top Browse button.
6. A file list window from your computer will appear. Locate the photo file that you want to Upload, click on it, and then click on the Open button. The file list window will disappear and the photo address will now be next to the browse button. (If you want to post more than one photo in your message, click on the second browse button and repeat the procedure).
7. Click on the Upload button. Wait for your photo file(s) to upload. When they are done uploading you will see them listed in the middle of the window under the Current Attachments box. Close the Manage Attachments window.
8. Scroll down to the Submit Reply and Preview Post buttons.
9. Click on the Preview Post button. Now you can see what your message will look like, including a thumbnail of your photo(s). Make corrections if necessary, and then click on the Submit Reply button.

That's it - your message and photo(s) are now posted!
