Hello ianc. Check picture format, .JPG should work. If not send me a support ticket.

imgur makes uploading pictures very easy in my experience. Just click the Upload button on the top, browse/drag n drop/paste, done. ;)

another way is with Imageshack.com

you upload your images, then you get a line of html code from them to post into a forum...

also you can post the other line that is a direct link... that way the picture does not show in your post but clicking on the link you post will open the picture in a new browser window.

thanks hopi seems like the way for me to go as when I press image i dont get any way to browse to the pic ,what happens is I get this [ img ][ /img ] (I changed it a bit or it disappears) appear on the page also for the URL, SO a simple link to paste seems like my only option. maybe i should try putting the link in the middle of the bracketed img's.
After some testing imageshack worked with that method but only being thumb nail sized for free users I thought I'd use that size for a little preview and a link to the detailed version with imgur, so thanks again ,I consider myself helped.
