To share your pictures on these forums, you need to do the following:

1) First set up a photo-hosting account. These are usually free of
charge and some of the options include flickr.com and photobucket.com

2) Upload your pictures to that hosting account. Most will then make it very easy to copy the URL of any particular picture.

3) Click the little picture of a tree above the comment box in the C&SC forums.

4) Insert the URL of your picture in the required field and click "insert".

5) Er, that's it (in theory).

agh but that is too complicated for me.  I don't even know what a URL is ??  help ?

 It was easier before as you had the same system for adding photos as per on the AlfaBB which I understand and can use.

You need to have compatibility view on in IE. This will then bring a box up when you click the tree symbol which will allow you to input the address of the picture and some text explaining it (the alt text) and allow you to define its size.

You can also link to an URL which will bring the picture or webpage up in a new window.

or this but you must put this line in when you have rich text disabled otherwise the < and > will be converted to symbols using '&lt;'
