    Default Inserting a picture into a post

    The 'insert image' feature when posting asks for a URL address. The image may be on a particular page of some site, but there is no way to single this image out for insertion when you just use the URL address.
    I could copy and save the actual picture to desktop; but how do I then insert this? It seems to be URL or nothing?

    Go to 'profile', then to 'edit avatar' and then scroll down to 'browse' (your computer files).

    Bear with me. Where is this 'profile' I have to go to? Apart from 'public profile' I can't find any tab for this.

    Have you already tried this?

    To attach a file to a new post, simply click the [Manage Attachments] button at the bottom of the post composition page, and locate the file that you want to attach from your local hard drive.
    After posting, the image attachments may display a thumbnail, depending on the forum settings. To view the contents of the attachment (if it is not already displayed) simply click the filename link that appears next to the attachment icon.

    Many thanks to you both. Now all I have to do is convert tiffs into giffs (which I can do) to get the image down to the size a post will accept!.
