While I have been able to add a photo to my posts, it appears there is a special secret to adding one to a message I am trying to send to a poster here.

Any clues anybody?

Thanks, Ken

Hello Ken. Unless I am mistaken, I don't think you can send photos in a Personal Message. I believe it is text only. Hopefully I am wrong and someone can enlighten both of us if so.  :-\  Clay/Lexi

Edit: There is an "insert image" icon in the PM menu, but I have never been able to get it to work. Perhaps someone can explain how it functions.

Before the recent forum updates, you could use the IMG tags to put a pic in the post. Currently though, that feature is broken.

You can add a image that you posted/hosted on the net by clicking on the 'insert image' button.
[under the 'B' or 'BOLD' button]
You need the web address of the image you want to insert. You can not just attach an image like you can on a post on the board...

If you use Google Pics, Flicker, Photobucket, etc., you should be able to use 'create link' or equivalent from within that program and paste the link in the PM.  Unless CLC has blocked all links in PMs, which I don't think is the case.

That function is currently broken after the most recent forum update.

Just get an email or phone number for the person you want to send a photo to and email or text it to them.
