    Sorry in advance if this is a stupid question. But how exactly do I attach images located on my computer to a post or PM?

    I understand the URL link, but do your photos have to be on a web page? Can you post from google drive?

    Cheers

    yes, you can post from google drive if you create a shared directory and allow anyone to view. you can then copy the link it gives you to share and post it into your reply box using the globe and chain link above.

    What works better for me is creating an album on your profile page that is view-able by all and uploading your pics to that album.

    After saving each pic if you lick on it a larger view will open up, and underneath it will be a URL and an IMG link. I use the IMG (BB) link since you can drop it right in with your text and no link buttons needed.
    URL link using globe button:
    http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=7186&pictureid=82829

    IMG tag using BB code. No buttons needed.
