OK, we'll start with attachment vs. images within your post.
Attachments are when you attach a file form your computer to this bb. It will show as a link, and the file will pop up in a new window. The picture you post as an attachment must be stored in your computer somewhere (mine are in "My Pictures"). (I'm assuming you all know how to save a picture that you find somewhere? PM me if you need a private lesson in this)
Go to reply as usual. You may type text if you wish. Then scroll down a little, and you will see an area that says "attach file." Click the "browse" button to search for the pic you want to attach. Select the pic, click "open," and then the location of the picture should appear in the space next to the "browse" button. Then "ubmit reply" as usual. The attachment will appear at the bottom of your post.
Please note that there is a size limit for these pictures. It must also have a valid file extension (gif jpg png txt zip bmp jpeg pps).
If you want to post an image and have it appear within the body of your post (you don't want to have to click a link to open it) IT MUST HAVE AN INTERNET ADDRESS (the picture has to be online somewhere).
Find a picture online somewhere. Put your mouse over the picture and right click. A gray box should open. Scroll to the bottom and click "properties." Another gray box will pop up. In it will be a line for "ADDRESS/URL." Copy that line (I'm assuming we don't need a lesson on copy & paste. PM me if you do), and then go to the thread at allnurses to which you want to post the pic.
Reply in your usual fashion. Above where you type your post, there are numerous little buttons. Click the "IMG" button, and a grey prompt box will pop up. Paste the address you copied into this box. Then hit "OK." You can make this appear anywhere in your post that you'd like. Menaing, you can type vefore or after it, etc.
Please note that the address in your browser IS NOT the address of the picture. If you copy and paste this address, you'll get the box with a little red "x" in it.
Alright, this is Tuesdays lesson. A little lengthy, I know, but I'm making up for not doing it yesterday!
Now post me some pictures to show me you understand!
