how to post picture from my computer?

Silly question....I can't seem to figure out how to post pics when I start a new thread? What am I missing? At the bottom of the page is says I am not allowed to post attachments. Anyone know why? Thanks

Re: how to post picture from my computer?

Valid question Justin:
The ability to add photos directly to a post from a home computer is a supporting members only feature.

Let me explain the reasoning.
The forums receive a lot of visitors and if everyone who stopped by uploaded images we then have to host those photos for a long time and the poster might have only been on the site for a few days.

This slows down our forum backups (that run several times a week) while we keep backing up these orphaned images from guys who may no longer be participating.

We do allow everyone to post some pictures in the /showroom (and link to them) which is what I would suggest doing. https://www.camaros.net/showroom/ upload the photos, and there is a quick link box that you can cut and paste to display the image directly in a forum post. It's not as convenient but works pretty good.


Hope that makes sense.
