Including multiple images in a post is diffrent then attaching a single image. The "attach" feature uploads an image to the end of your post. This is ok for many post, but some of you may want to include more than one photo in a single post and would like the ability to layout your photos so they make more sense & add captions, etc.
In order to have multiple pictures you need to use the IMG button on the post page. It requires that you give it the url (http://
) of the pictures. That means you have to upload your images to the internet (to a server), then tell the IMG command where it can find your pictures.

Once your images are posted you can link your images to your posts in the forums using the IMG button.
Th fastest way I have found to link to my images is to open your Photo Gallery page from the profile page and find the image you want to include. I reccomend including the "Medium" version that is never larger than 410 pixels wide.
How to find the URL for the IMG function - Windows Only
The IMG button requires that you provide it the full url of the image you want to include. To find out the url, right click on the picture you want to include. Next select properties

Once the Properties box has appeared highlight the Adress (URL). To highlight, position the mouse to the left of the http://
and hold down the left mouse button while sliding the mouse to right. Keep highlighting until you reach the end of the url. Sometimes the URL is wrapped into 2 lines. If this is the case, go to the end of the second line.
Once the URL is highlighted, press the "Control" button and the "C" button at the smae time (Control+C). This copies the URL into your computers memory. Next go back to the forum post page and select the IMG button (see above). When you are promted for the image URL, press the "Control" button & the "V" button at the same time (Control+V). This will paste the URL into the IMG prompt.
Good luck. If you have any questions, please post them in this thread!
