I think I finally got it now -using PhotoBucket. Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket
Go here, make an account, start adding any pictures you want to use anywhere on the net- on this site. Then depending on the size of the picture, you may need to RESIZE it on Photobucket....this resizing tool has changed a few times since I have been here, so hard to explain...just monkey with it ....
ONce you have the picture the size you want to use- save it , name it, then double click on it -on the left it should have a box with codes under "Share this image
", scroll down and copy & paste the IMG CODE
directly into your post here on this forum. No need to use that small box mountain thing I was talking about, that is what I was doing wrong. Still dont' know what that is for ?
(OR)... another way to explain....when you hover over any Picture you have saved in Photobucket you will notice this drop down Box with 6 options....
email & im
HTML thumb Img code
...Copy & paste the IMG CODE right into your messages HERE on TAM, that's it ! refresh the page and see how it looks ...
Give it a try!
