I am using a mac! I have figured out how to post pictures to my gallery but every time I try to post to a forum it just does not work. In steady of a nice picture i just get the picture file name. HELP PLEASE
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. _________________ Wes K

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... _________________ Tripp Cantwell
