How do I post a picture in the posts I make. I see them all the time here, but I guess I am not techno savy.

You can put the picture on Flickr or some other site, then right click on it to get the link in properties. get the hotlink copy it, then paste it in place of the "http%20link"

Pics must meet the size requirements I think......... at least the avatar pics must be under the requirements.......

Once you upload the photo to Flickr, click on it. when you get the page size picture, there will be 4 icons in the bottom right corner of the screen. Click on the second one (the arrow) for "share". When you do that, you get a popup screen that gives you 4 choices, click on the one that says "BB Code". You'll get a line like this
url=https://flic.kr/p/YDYCau]img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4398/37185737286_c614a00237.jpg[/img][/url]1981 Lueders-Avoca by j.jwooten@sbcglobal.net, on Flickr". Now I deleted two brackets to show the line, so all you have to do is copy the BBCode - right click and select copy, or hold down the CTRL and C buttons at the same time, then paste it to your post, like below.

Cowboy might be able to help if he ever came around anymore.
Myself I think I might actually be able to follow OBK's instructions but I can't find my friend Flicker. Somebody left the gate open.

That and I don't have a scanner at home and limited access at work. Think I'll just send what I've got to Leman and see if he thinks it's worth it.
