Are you trying to load your photo directly from your computer to the posting?

To copy a photo you have to select "copy link URL" .
It is very easy to copy the link address by mistake.

You have to follow this format:
[IMG]Copy link URL[/IMG]

You can also click on the photo, making it larger, THEN copy the link address and post it below your URL.

It helps the bandwidth if you post smaller photos to begin with.

Folks can use the link address to look at larger photos of what you post.

Are you following the data posted here as a sticky:
http://www.willysmjeeps.com/v2/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=8670

The URL you use and how you select it will often vary with the browser type and weather you have a MAC or IBM based PC. It has been many many years since I punched a key on a MAC but I recall even in the 90's selecting a url to link to was a very different process on the MAC as opposed to the rest of the computer world's equipment.

I am following the instructions on the sticky. I think that I will just have to figure it out by trial and error. If there are any Mac magician out there a little help would be great.

Replying to an old post but I struggled and figured it out so I'll share. I am running a MacBook Pro with Firefox. To link a photo from Album to Post - this works for me:

1. Go to your Album and hover the pointer over the thumbnail OR exploded image you wish to link to the post.
2. Hit [control + right click] and select "Copy Image Location".
3. Go to your posting and type desired text in the box.
4. Hit [enter] to new empty line.
5. Click "Img" icon on top row of Message body box. This should paste the following four characters: [img] - DON'T ENTER A SPACE - GO TO #6.
6. Hit [control + right click] and "Paste" the image location - DON'T ENTER A SPACE - GO TO #7.
7. At the end of the URL that you just pasted type the following six characters: [/img]. #5 and #6 and #7 should all be on a single line run together - no spaces.
8. Click the "Preview" button at the bottom of the Post Reply box and admire your handy work.

Hope this helps...
