JD go to the search bar at top of the page and type in how to post pics. There are some instructions that will make it easy to follow. But the short and sweet is when typing a reply or beginning a new thread there is some tool bars at the top one has a smiley face in it. The first icon in this is the icon you click on to upload a pic. Then just click on a pic and hit submit. and you are Q viewing.

Welcome to the Forum JD. In the reply box there are a number of icons. To insert pictures click on the picture icon (looks like mountains with a sun) it will allow you to upload pictures from your computer.
