SC, you have to upload your photos to another web site, something like momentoffame.com, snapfish, or one of the other free sites. once it's on that site, then you can post it here on the barn.
1. post your photo on another site
2. once it shows on that site, right click on the picture, go to Properties, and you'll see the web address (URL).
3. highlight the address with your mouse, right click, and hit "copy"
4. come back to the barn, start a post (or reply to a post), and enter your text.
5. once you've entered your text, type in :
you have to make sure that you use the square brackets, don't have any spaces in between the brackets and your address, and for the second set of brackets, make sure you use the back slash before you type img.
if that doesn't work, then do a search on all forums, because i know that it has been discussed before. good luck.
