You will need to upload it to somewhere on the internet so you can link it's URL into the body of your PR Post. If you use pinterest, google+ photos or other web based photo storage programs, this is pretty easy to do. Then while you are viewing that photo online, you can right click on it and scroll down to "copy image URL" and paste that into your PR post using the IMAGE button.

Let me know if that works for you.

I can't do this so can't tell you how but I am pretty sure you might have a photo album here on PR you can upload your photo to? Maybe a paying member can confirm or deny?

I can't do this either. I tried reading the instructions, but they weren't really clear for someone who has never done this.
Also wondering how to post a clickable link. I see them all the time in posts, where the person will say "go HERE".

Click on the REPLY button above a message and you will see a message screen that includes buttons for links and images which makes the whole thing much easier. Good luck!

OK, I see that now. but the other problem is (I must be pretty stupid!) I can't figure out how to create my PR Photo album, so I can start doing some reviews. When you click on the link given in the instructions, you just get a page with an orange square at the top that says "MartiP's Photo Album" but there is no indication of a place to click to upload photos. Clear as mud!
So I clicked on the other link where you are supposed to able to create a homepage and got an error message, "you do not have permission to go here". So where is it you upload your photos?

On the photo album page, click Browse to select a file from your computer. See the red arrow in the screenshot.

Then click upload to get it in your ablum.

To add more than one photo, click Add More Files after you've selected the first one and before you click upload.

Your photos are now in the album. To add them to a post click on the html button to the right of the photo. In the window that opens, copy either of the red links directly into your post.

Thanks, I found that now. I didn't think that was the real link, just part of instructions.
Now I tried to upload a photo which had a name which was just a string of numbers, and msg, was that had to be 20 with 3 letters. Tried another, which had a name of words and got another error msg. Looks like I will have to have the time to go through project photos and rename them all. I don't have time now.
Thanks anyway.

I gave the "how to link directions" to Kirstensews (now known as Threaddy) in 2010 under the "a space saving sewing table" topic, page 2. She came back in Jan. 2011 to tell me the directions worked for her. I was using IE exclusively at the time. The directions should be almost the same for Firefox. The exception could be that the box which pops up in FF might be slightly different, and probably in the middle of your screen instead of on the top left side. Anyway, click here. Scroll down to about the center of page 2. When following the directions, if you should happen to get a box that pops up and says error, go to the top of your screen, click the strip that tells you to temporarily allow scripted windows (or something similar). Then continue on with the directions. It should work for you. Let me know how it goes. Threaddy's reply: Click here.

Angela, totally off-topic, but how is that you have 50 new messages? 1) don't you ever look at your messages? LOL, and 2) I thought the limit here was 20 messages? Hmmm.
