There are two ways of inserting photos into your messages:

Use the Insert Image button:

Click on the Insert Image button in the message editor toolbar, and enter the complete URL to where your image is already stored out on the Internet. If your photo is visible in your browser you can right-click on it, select Properties, highlight the web address shown, enter Ctrl-C to copy it to your clipboard and then use Ctrl-V to paste the URL into the box shown when you click on the Insert Image button.Note that some photo-sharing sites do not allow the photos to be sent to third-party servers so your photo may show up as a broken image (empty box with red "x" in it.) If you have entered an incorrect or incomplete URL, the broken image will also be displayed.

Attach an Image:

When you're in the message editor you will see below the text entry area is a file browse button. Click on that button and then navigate your hard drive to get to your photo - once selected it will be uploaded and stored on our server. It's important to keep the file size to less than 250Kb and all digital camera pictures should be downsized to around 640x480 pixels before uploading them. Even a 2-megapixel camera creates a 1600x1200 pixel image and that is way too big to be properly displayed here.

You can upload a photo saved as a JPG, JPEG or PNG image file. Note that you will not immediately see your photo like you do when you use Insert Image option. You will need to enter your message and then go back and read it once it has been posted to see the attachment.
