How do I add a link or picture to an email or forum/group post
You can use the shortcut icon's found on any forum/group or email posting page to add an image or a link to your post or email.

To add a picture to your post or email, you will need the exact URL where the image is hosted on the INTERNET. After capturing the URL, you would click the "Image icon" then paste the image URL in the proper field. After clicking okay, your image will be displayed in your post or email.
If the picture you want to include is not already on the INTERNET, but is only on your computer, you may upload your own photos to your shared photo album. Occasionally members wish to upload photos for linking in the forums and blogs. If this is what you wish to do, you will see an "Embed" text box that will contain the pre-formatted HTML code that you can copy and paste into your forum/ group or email posting.
You can click the "Preview " button to insure your link or picture is as you wanted it.
