How do I insert a picture from files on my laptop? I click the Insert Picture icon but that opens a window asking for a URL. The picture I'm trying to insert is not at a URL address but rather in My Documents.

Thanks

use the little paperclip icon instead of the photo one, and attach the pictures (you have to click "go advanced" to get that icon).

Zelda, I'm trying to do this in a PM and when I click Go Advanced, I don't get a paperclip. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Use a photo sharing website.

Here is a list of some:

Or upload the image to your MR photo album and then link to it from there.

Thanks. I did that and it worked.

sorry cassidy, i misunderstood what you were trying to do ! i'm glad you got it sorted out though. you're right, you can't add an attached file to a pm. luckily there are other options. ;)
