When you post a message, there is a box called Img, click on that, then type in the address of where you picture is stored on the web, then click Img again,
It should look like this [img ]http://uktankclub.star-one.co.uk/images/HowardsT-34.jpg[/img ]

Umm, is it possible to send an image from our email address as an attachment, or must we sign up to a company like photobucket?[/img]

No you can only link to a picture elsewhere on the web. We have a limited band width to run this forum on so we cant host pictures :( . some isp's give free web space to host pictures, but we have found the you can't link to yahoo photo albums, unless anyone knows differently :?:
