    Hello all,

    I've written a little how-to that I would eventually like to add to our FAQ.

    If interested, please take a look and let me know if you would have anything to add to my instructions. Thank you!

    Attach a photo:
    - Initiate a new post/thread by clicking the "post reply" button within
    a thread, or clicking on the "new thread" button.
    -Click on the paperclip within the tools on the "reply to thread" area.
    -A little drop-down menu will open, with a menu item that says "manage
    attachments". Click on "manage attachments".
    -Click the "browse" button.
    - Another dialog box will open called "choose file". Navigate to the
    location of the photo on your computer, select it, and click the "open"
    button. This dialog box will now close.
    -You're back on the "manage attachments" dialog box. Click the button
    that says "upload". You'll see it appear in a new area called "current
    attachments". Go up to the upper-right and click on the link that says
    "Close this window".
    -Back in your message area, click the paperclip again. You'll see your
    new file available in the drop-down menu. Click the photo file name. A
    link to the photo will appear in your message area. Do not alter this
    inserted text or the link will not work properly. Once you submit your
    message, the link will appear differently.

    If you have your photo on a Web site, you can also attach a photo's URL
    (Web address) and upload it from your server. (this can either be
    accomplished through the "manage attachments" area or by clicking on the
    "picture" icon in the tool bar, the yellow picture of mountains and a
    sun.) You also have the ability to upload a photo from your computer by
    typing the path to the photo, such as C:\desktop\images\photo.jpg Note:
    If you delete or move the photo, I believe the photo will no longer
    display on the fourm.

    Please mention resizing to 800 x 600 max. Larger won't fit on many screens anyway.

    Don't forget it's easy to resize your pics using the Microsoft resizer!!!!!!!!!!
    fun4now turned me on to it, It's AWSOME!!!! SUPER easy to use, AND it saves your original (large) pic, so if you want to print it up, the larger file size make a great pic on photo paper!!!!!!!! Here is the link.

    If this doesn't work for you, put in a search for "photo resizer" and you will have a list to choose from

    For those of you running MAC/APPLE and having to take one too many steps for resizing: Run XP on your APPLE machine with VM Ware or Parallels and simply drop the resized file on XP (via the MS picture re-sizer) into your mac folder, then add to the forum. Extremely easy, as it PS CS3/4, and even Preview actions. Just my thought if you are running XP as a Virtual Machine on your MAC.

    The resizer only works with XP, I tried downloading it and that was the message that came up.
    I use outlook express to resize my pictures and then drag them off to the desktop.

    Running XP, Vista or windows 7 is no problem on a mac using bootcamp, parallels or a combination of both but i dont understand why people are saying you need XP to resize an image? You can easily use "Preview" application to resize any image.
