Default How to include a photo in your message

First of all, the photo has to already be on the Internet, not on your home computer.

The format is easy:


here is how you do the entire process:

The first step to adding an image to your message is to upload it to an Internet server. You can do this by creating your own photo gallery in the CruiseMates Photo Gallery. Then you can embed any full-size or thumbnail picture from your gallery in a message. The key to is find the Internet address (URL) for that specific picture and to create a link to it.

How to embed a picture in a forum message:
Visual Aid: Step by Step Instructions for Embedding Pictures:


Step 1: Put mouse over pic, right-click, select "properties" (try it now!)




Step 2: use your mouse to high-light the URL properties




Step 3:right-click on mouse and select "copy"





Step 4: where you want to put the picture in your post - click the icon above your post that is a yellow box with mountains in it. It will ask for a URL (location of picture). PASTE in the URL you copied from your picture.



That is it. The picture above is not perfectly accurate but you get the idea - right-click on your mouse and select "paste" inside the "add picture" box that pops up.
