I know it's been covered before but thick as I am with computers I'm just not getting it.
I have pictures on my HDD I need to attach them to messages to RR but it just won't go.
Tried to cut and paste to the written message but it doesn't work.
Appreciate the help in idiots language if you can

It's not you, it's a pain in the bloody arse!

You need to host your pictures on a site like imagecave this is a free site, sign up using your RR username. Once on here you can link the pictures using the picture icon when you post. Other image hosting sites are available and someone will probably be along to suggest better one's in a minute.

Use mediashack, it looks like no registration is required. Click "browse" and look through the folders for the picture. You'll then get a link that looks like this:

Or if you're in "advanced" there's a button on the toolbar that looks like 2 hills and the sun. Click it and paste the link in between the two tags.

Check your link Zoidy; all I'm seeing is some big gay canoe.

It uses up a lot of the site's storage, some sites do not allow it as they end up having to pay for more bandwidth tc.

I use Photobucket, simples and easy, which I need.
