Hi... I just went through this..... You cannot upload from your computer. The images have to be "hosted" somewhere like photobucket... then you use the IMG commands and insert the photo address....

You know Moviefan another thing you can do is upload the pictures to MySpace, and then link to them in here from there. As an example, if I go to a picture in my MySpace, I right-click on the picture and then select "properties". A gray "properties" box comes up, and in the box after "Address:" it says:

http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/imag ... 2645e1.jpg


I highlight all that, and then press "Ctrl" and "C" for "copy". Then I come over here in Nitrateville, start my reply, and then type

Image to the end of that, or click the "Img" button again, and I get:

Image

which typed looks like

{img}http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/imag ... 1.jpg{/img}

(Except with brackets "[]" in place of the braces "{}".)

Hopefully that gives you a different way of doing that.
