How do I do this.  I thought there was an attachment option on the posting page, but none was there,  I went to my profile, etc to try and activate that option but didn't find it.  Can anyone help me to figure this out? 
Thanks.
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

  • Big white goggie? No. Hasn't seen him.
You need to post the picture on a file-sharing site such as photobucket or flickr, then copy and paste the http code like this:

[ img]http://theURLforyourpicture[ /img]

  • You keep using that word.
You need to upload it to a picture hosting website (like Photobucket, Flickr, PicasaWeb - most require you to create a free account. Picasa is run by Google, so if you have gmail, that works). Most of these will give you an 'image' link (it looks like this [IMG ]http://www. link. com[/img]. Copy and paste that. If not, get the direct link to the image and post it between [IMG] tags. Hope this is clear enough, let me know if I can help any further  :).
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Thank you all.  I just couldn't figure it out.  I hopefully will be able to participate more fully in the forum with picture posting ability.
