I think there are a couple ways with this forum setup, at the bottom is a link called "Additional Options..."  click it and it gives you an Attach option.  I havent used this way because its going to take up Don's webspace and eventually he is goin have to delete images or remove this feature. 
The method I use and I suggest everyone use to save webspace on this site is to remotely link images.  To do this go to http://imageshack.us/ on the right side of the screen is a browse button click it and find the picture you want to upload and click OK.  Next at the bottom of the right side there is a button called "Host it" click that and it takes you to an image info screen that gives you multiple links.  The very last link is a direct link example "http://img118.exs.cx/img118/854/aurora7ur.jpg" highlight it and copy then go to the forum and add an img tag <img>thelink</img> replace the <> with [] and you have an image posted.

Koni, don't feel bad for asking this. You are just the first to ask it in the forum. I was getting ready to toss an e-mail to a moderator asking the same thing.

Thanks for the tech help Epic! I'm throwing out a test. Hope it works...wish me luck!

Maybe you should ask Dan...

As helpful as Dan's been to me, I imagine he would have had he read this post before I did.

But take it one step better, perhaps the moderator can add more detailed instructions to those that exist on the forum help menu and some suggested links on how download and post pictures.

Just a suggestion.

Ok Pete, I don't know if my instructions were that good but since you seem to think so I'll post them for all to see.

Happy to help with getting pictures online. Here is how I do it.

First you need a picture hosting site. I use www.photobucket.com
They are free and relatively easy to use. It takes a little trial and error to start but once you have done it its pretty easy.

Down load your pictures, you can do one at a time or multiple if you want. If you wanna do multiple look for the drop down box that says multiple and click on it then mark the number of pictures you want to down load.

after you do that it will give you a window will multiple drop down boxes and each set of boxes (one for a title and one for the path to the picture on your computer) will put one picture on photobucket.

after you have the pictures downloaded, they will show up at the bottom of the screen with the information needed to inset them on the forum. Just copy the img tag and paste it on the forum posting. I used the preview function when I post pictures to insure that I did not drop part of the tag. \

Hope this helps.

Dan

Thanks again folks...the picture sharing site tip was what cleared everything up for me. I didn't want to create a geocities site for this stuff and didn't want to clutter the board with a lot of test posts...thanks again.

I'll share the spot, but you gotta e-mail me. This lake is only 10 surface acres. If I posted the location on ths forum we would need a velvet rope and have to take a number just to cast.

This was not my best bass of 2005 BTW, just a really good picture.

Having my daughter help me learn how to post pics, so this is a test pic of my son Jeremiah with one of his dandy catches. I'll only do this once so as not to post unnecessary photos.

The easiest way is just say you would believe how big is was to bad I forgot the camera then there is no evidence to prove you Right or Wrong. I do agree i would like to post some sometime of my trips to Canada and Crappie fishing in Iowa. Maybe some day i will figure it out

Don't know that he would stab it, he releases all the big flatheads he catches.
