    Yep, the new forum format has totally changed how to post pics, nothing in the old tutorial now applies. What I do, there's three blue buttons to the lower right of the Text Box; Post Reply, Upload a File, and More Options. Click on the Upload a File button and take it from there. That should take you to the file menu on your computer. You can select to either post a thumbnail of the selected image, or full size image like I did below.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I have tried again and there is no upload file option like we have in this thread see picture.
    It seems to be when in conversation you only get post reply and more options available and if you go to the image tab along the top you get as posted before URL request.

    LoL, I'm still trying to figure out the new forum format, much less why something isn't where it's supposed to be, it'll have to remain a mystery to me.
