Thanks so much,

creek... the first thing you do is set up a free photo acct ...lots of us use Photobucket.com here...I think it's easy to use & just takes some practice. Then you can copy & paste the URL address in the "optional link URL box (you see it when you are typing a message) & then you give it a name, anything, like "creeks birdbath."

When you get this far, just holler & we'll lead you thru some more shortcuts. Jeanne S.

If you've opened your account, then:

Next ... with Photobucket home page open, click on the green bar that says"Upload Imagesand Videos"...then choose which pics from your computer files you want to load onto photobucket.

After they're loaded, another page pops up & you arrow down & click "Save."

Then another page pops up & it shows what's "In this Album"... put your cursor over the pic you want to post & a bunch of options pop up under the pic...arrow down to the 3rd one "HTML code"...left click on it to highlight it...then right click & choose "copy"....then go back to the message part of the Holiday forum (where you are logged in, writing a message) & right click & click "paste."

A bunch of gibberish shows up ...that is your pic...& then when you click "preview message," you pic will show up (like this pic did above of my gardens)...then send your message on it's way.

Hope this helps...it takes some messing around...& practice...but it works...none of any of them are easy (JMHO)....Jeanne S.

And, creek, here's some instructions posted by friends on the Garden Junk forum that may help you (in case mine didn't)

Don't give up! Experiment! Jeanne S.
