Is the image located on a file sharing service such as picasa, photobucket/etc?

Did you click on the insert image button and put in the url of the picture?

I don't think it allows you to upload photographs just for a post, you may be able to create a gallery in your account, but I don't know as I don't use that to do so.

Thanks for the help. I was trying to include a couple of photos from my desktop to a new thread.

Maybe I don't have enough posts yet ?

Are they on your computer saved locally? You need to put them online first and then link to them using the insert picture link on the forum, I don't think there is a minimum number of posts required to post an image from the internet.

There however is not currently a way of posting a picture from your desktop directly onto the forum.

Thanks for the input. Yeah they are local to my pc. I currently do not have any of my personal photos online so to speak.

I was just trying to post a couple of pics (that I just took) of a mod. It's no big deal really.

You could have made an account, or created a member gallery to upload only the pictures of the car.

You can also create an album under your profile and link them to your post from there if you don't want to create a new photobucket or dropbox (or whatever) account. Just don't try and link them for about 2-3 days after adding them to the album because they need mod approval. You will be able to see them immediately after adding them to the album but no one else will until they are mod-approved.
