    So it sounds like you want to post a picture from a file on your PC instead of a link on the internet?

    When replying to a post, hit the insert image button and there should be a tab for inserting an image from a computer or from a link. Just choose the computer tab and then there should be a browse button.

    I was able to post the pictures from the computer in a post , but a URL was the only option in a private message.

    I'm on my phone right now but it looks like I'm seeing the same thing in private messages. There's no computer option.

    Let me look into this to see if this is normal behavior or if there is something wrong. I would think it should work the same way as a regular post, but the again who knows...

    Found an answer pretty quickly. Apparently they don't allow you to upload pics from a PC on private messages.

    Kind of stupid if you ask me. Oddly enough, you CAN do this through tapatalk on your phone. So that's one way around it if you use your phone for browsing the site.

    Not sure if the linked above is the same as I am going to post, but in the reply box, the third option/button from the left is "paste as plain text".

    On another note, Tom, is there a way to turn the pictures on without having to be logged in? Due to the time-out of the board, often I end up getting logged out. But in order to view pics, I have to re-log back in. That is annoying.

    Sorry for the delay, Lane. I think I changed the right setting. I originally left it that way to add a little security from people grabbing pictures off the forum but if they want it that bad they can easily just sign up and do it. Let me know if this helps or if there is a separate setting I need to change.
