Can anyone tell me how to incorporate a photo from my picture library into a forum reply. Also how do you decrease the MB size to enable it to be attached. Don't make replies to difficult. Numbscull awaiting the answer. Many Thanks.

Hi John, there's an explanation in the "Frequently asked questions - Rarely read answers" on how to attach photos and files to your posts.

For decreasing the file size, your best bet is to use a graphics or photo-editing program. Either resize the image to make it smaller, or save it as a file type (jpg for example) that requires less filespace. You can usually fiddle with the options when saving jpgs, to find a good balance between file size and image quality.
