Hi All,

This Forum has a few ways to add pictures to your email. The first adds them as an attachment at the bottom of your post:

First you need to open the post editor by clicking on the "post reply" or "new thread" button so that you can type in your subject and any text you want above the picture.
Then scroll down to the next box on your screen. It will be labeled "Additional Options".
Click on "Manage Attachments".
A new window will open that has options to "Upload File from Computer" or "Upload File from URL".
The "Upload File from Computer" lets you search your computer for pictures you want to add.
The "Upload File from URL" lets you enter the URL of an image on the internet to add to your post. For this option, find the picture you want to add on a web page. Right click on the image and you will see an option to "view image" or "open image". Choose this option and the picture will appear on a page all by itself. Look in the browser address bar (the place where you type www.thehousebreakingbible.com (http://www.thehousebreakingbible.com)) and you will see a URL (web address) for the image. Copy that and paste it into the "Upload File from URL" box and hit "upload".If you want the picture to be inside your post as a part of the text, follow the following instructions:


For this option, you'll need a picture from a web page. Right click on the image from the web page and you will see an option to "view image" or "open image". Choose this option and the picture will appear on a page all by itself. Look in the browser address bar (the place where you type www.thehousebreakingbible.com (http://www.thehousebreakingbible.com/)) and you will see a URL (web address) for the image. Copy that URL.
Come back here and open the post editor by clicking on the "post reply" or "new thread" button so that you can type in your subject and any text you want above the picture.
Look at the icons above the window where you type your message. One of them looks like a yellow envelope. If you mouse over it, it will say "insert image".
Click the icon and a small window pops up asking for a URL.
Paste the URL of the picture into this box and hit "OK"
You'll see the picture in your post immediately.Finally, if you are really committed to getting a picture from your computer entered into the post and not as an attachment, you'll need to do it in two steps.

First you need to open the post editor by clicking on the "post reply" or "new thread" button so that you can type in your subject and any text you want above the picture.
Then scroll down to the next box on your screen. It will be labeled "Additional Options".
Click on "Manage Attachments".
A new window will open that has options to "Upload File from Computer" or "Upload File from URL".
The "Upload File from Computer" lets you search your computer for pictures you want to add.
You will need to hit the "browse" button to find the pic, then the "upload" button to add the pic as an attachment.
Post your post and then you will see the pic as an attachment. When you click on it, it will appear on a page all by itself. Look in the browser address bar (the place where you type www.thehousebreakingbible.com (http://www.thehousebreakingbible.com/)) and you will see a URL (web address) for the image. Copy that URL.
Now you will choose to "edit" your post
Look at the icons above the window where your message is. One of them looks like a yellow envelope. If you mouse over it, it will say "insert image".
Click the icon and a small window pops up asking for a URL.
Paste the URL of the picture into this box and hit "OK"
You'll see the picture in your post immediately.
If you have any problems, please let me know so I can improve my instructions. We're looking forward to those pics!
