When you start a new thread or reply to one if you scroll down there is a "Manage Attachments" button. Click it and you can upload your pics.
Hope this helps.

Hold on here, there is another way, which is what I usually do. You upload the photo from your computer to a web space like Photobucket.com or something like that. You then have a URL to your photo that you post here in [img]exampleURL[/img] by typing in or clicking on the little button at the top of the reply screen that looks like a mountain top. OR, on photobucket you can just copy the photo link that includes the [img] stuff right in it and just paste it here.

Any file size restrictions doing it this way? As I am sure you must know this sight chokes with the larger image files, just curious if we have a work around described.

I am pretty sure Photobucket downsizes your pics as you upload them. I have put some of mine in threads here and I believe they were pretty large. I'll put one up right now

No, It's not my car....I wish....

To Post Pixs:

There are a few different ways...

One is to use the manage attachment buttons @ the Bottom of the "Text Input/Dialog Box" screen.

There is a maximum of FIVE 600 X 480 pixel limit on those.

These are the most common because if some one wants to see them, they can see a bigger image & if they don't because of dial up they don't have a long wait to down load..up load...?

Is to use a free image Hosting such as www.photbucket.com PLUS you can upload them to the photo gallery @ HOTRODDERS.com by using the link in the header or click here,

After your picture{s} are hosted them you can make big pictures buy using the Yellow mountain button above the text input screen

Go to your image R/click on it scroll to the bottom of the drop down menu & click properties , then highlight copy & the URL then come back & click the Yellow mountain button then pasteit in the space provided.

{I use 2 windows or tabs some times & toggle back & forth if needed}

{Anyone know the proper name for this button? the Yellow Mountain }
Then paste the URL into the space & Boom! Big pictures.

Try not to make them TOO big because when you have to scroll to the right for 30 seconds to see the end of a fender you kinda of get lost during the journey. {sarcasm }

See the Pixs below for PIX of what I described.

I Hope this helps your C R S & if I missed anything I'll try to fill it in.

Good luck !
