Todd you CAN post directly here. It does involve a couple extra steps but once you have done it a couple of times it's no big deal. We have a thread on how to do it and as soon as I find it I will post the link here. I had to have a rail images account for AMR so I usually go that route myself. Now let me go look for that link.

There you go Todd, if you have any problems/questions let me know. You might want to print it out so you will have it for reference the first couple of times.

Tyson, i have a basic version for posting and it has no option for file posting.
I'm sure its an Admin thing so you will have to check that out for me before i can even learn how.

Because I have to use Rail Image for AMR I haven't had to post a image the regular way. I'll try it myself in minute.

Well it's working. I don't understand what you mean by

"i have a basic version for posting and it has no option for file posting"

You are using our software not yours, are you on a PC or a Mac?

Photo sharing is an important feature and advantage to membership here on RR-L. However, we realize that posting photos can be a confusing procedure, especially for new members who are not familiar with how the forum software works. As a result, I have written this step-by-step tutorial. Hopefully, it will help everyone who would like to post a photo and share their work with other members.

Please be aware that this tutorial does not address the uploading/downloading of photos from remote servers such as personal websites or photo hosting services. It also does not address setting up a Photo Album using the Forums' Photo Album software. (If you want to establish a photo album but do not see your user name listed in the Album area, please leave a note for Joe in the Admin Forum. He can set one up for you.)

The instructions below pertain only to those who have photo files in jpg or jpeg format stored on their computer's hard disk drive.

Also, please be aware of the following requirements imposed by the Forums' software: your photo file must be no larger than 80kb. The photo's file name should not contain any punctuation marks (such as commas, apostrophes, or quotation marks) and should not contain any spaces. Use a period or a dash instead of a space in the file name or run all of the words together to make one word.

STEP 1:Bring up the "Posting Form" window. (This is the window where you type replies to topics and post them.) Type in whatever information you wish about your photo. See the graphic below:



STEP 2: Click on the "Insert a File" button under the message window.
I dont have this.

Go to the link you gave me and look at the graphic.
See the part that says HTML is on Forum code
Below that is the file attachment icon.
I dont have that.
The bottom of my posting window has 2 check boxes,1 to include posting signature and one to subscribe to topic followed by 3 buttons
Post new reply Preview Reset fields

This means i cant get to the first step let alone step 3 below

STEP 3: You should now see the "Browse" window. When you click on the "Browse" button, the software will take you to your computer's hard drive. From there, navigate to the folder where you have stored your photo files (in jpg and 80kb or smaller!)



STEP 4: Select the photo you want to upload to your post. (NOTE: I deliberately did not include a graphic for this part. I use a Mac running OS X 10.3, and the file structure/dialogs would probably confuse those of you who use a PC/Windows.) After you have selected your photo's file name, the software will take you back to the "Browse" window, where the name of your photo is now displayed. Click on "Upload File to your name's Post."



STEP 5: After you have clicked on the "Upload File" button, you should see a message indicating that your file was successfully received. Click on the "Click here to Close" line. You should now be taken back to the message posting window, where some text has been added to your message.
