    Question plainly found in title. Been on here for awhile and never took the notion to learn....so, how do I post pictures?

    Thanks for the info.

    Read the FAQ link below and it explains it all. Basically, you need an online hosting site like Photobucket. You can't post pics that reside on your computer.

    Im sure there are other ways, but start a photobucket acct. Upload your photos there. Off to the right, there will be a few options, and you just click on the URL link. It will flash yellow and and say 'copied'--then you can just paste it in your thread.

    You can post any picture/photo that is online, including any you may have taken. For example, you see a photo online of a guitar you want to include in a post. Right click the picture and there will be a choice called "open image in new tab". Click it and the picture will open in a new tab on your browser. Then click on the web address in the browser bar to highlight the address, and then right click and copy the address. Then in your TGP post, there is a yellow icon/image inset box on the second line that looks like a mountain range with the sun on the right.[​IMG] Click that to bring up an address bar. Click on that bar to paste the image tab address into the address bar. When done, click the okay box, and the image will be paced within your post. You must copy the image address prior to opening the picture icon/image insert. Doesn't work in reverse.
