Sorry, I'm new to this forum. I only seem to be able to get a link in the message body rather than the actual image. Checked the FAQ's and tried a few things.

I must be dumb or something! Please help.

Hi Denise, there's no such thing as a dumb question - it took me a while to work out forum images the first time!

Basically you need to have the image on another website somewhere - maybe your own, or a photo sharing site like flickr.

Then you need to find out the internet address for the image - you can do this by right-clicking it on the website, choosing properties and copying the location address.

Then all you need to do is put that address in a forum post with [img]at%20the%20front%20and[/img] at the end, and bingo, the picture will appear!

Try it and we'll edit it if necessary to see where you've gone wrong...
