Think you need to set up a picture storage site (Flickr, photobucket, there's tons of them)

Upload your photos and then each one will have a unique URL code. Make your post, then click the picture icon, next to the yellow smiley and copy/paste the url to the photo.

I think that's how it works. Been a while since I've done it

I go to photobucket.com

Photobucket makes you sign up for a free account. I then upload the photo.

After the uploading is finished, photobucket provides an "IMG code" for the photo. I copy and paste that code into the VImovingcenter forum message.

The picture only appears when you hit the "Preview" button. If it looks fine, click the "Post message" button (like you do normally).

This brings up a question. If I post a picture using my photobucket account and someone views that photo does it give them access to all of my photos on photobucket? Does anyone know? Thanks.

Photobucket allows you to make albums private or public. So put your car pic in a public album and set your albums with personal pics to private. (Open each album and click on Album Options drop down bar near the top).
