    Make sure it has the correct extension. jpg, bmp for example. If that is correct try disabling or enabling some programs. When I had netsonic loaded & I wanted to upload a file anywhere I would have to turn it on before the file would go anywhere. Thankfully just removing netsonic altogether fixed the problem.

    Save it to your desktop or where ever, then when you reply, towards the bottom you'll see 'Attach File' with the browse button. Click browse and attach your file. File size can't be any larger then 542880 bytes and must be either gif, jpg, png, zip bmp jpeg or rar

    Are you trying to upload you pic to this thread or another? If the file is too big or the wrong extention you'll get a msg, do you get any msg when trying to upload?

    To attach a file:

    When creating a new post and want to also attach a file you need to use the browse button near the bottom of the page. Once you've located your file and have completed the message you are posting you simply need to click 'Submit'.

    Try it again.

    Just make sure it's the correct extension, size and that you have typed something, anything in "Your Reply"

    I've merged the other threads you've started regarding this question. There really is no need to start numreous threads about the same thing.
    We've explained how to attached a screenshot...try using a different program such as Photoshop or PaintShop

    if you have access to a little webspace you can just use the img tags with the url to the pic inbetween them

    Yep, just make sure it's not a huge image as some members are on dialup. Don't want it taking forever to download for them.
