Hello
I am a relative new comer to ancient coins and have been lurking here for some time.
I wish to get more active but currently I face what is likely a basic problem but I admit to being computer illiterate.

How can I get a photo that is now on Picasa onto a new topic where I am trying to ask a question.
I have everything set but find i have no idea how to get my coin photo from point A to point B
Could someone pleas help me here or PM me.
It would be greatly appreciated

thanks,
Gary

Save the picture to your desktop, goto www.tinypic.com and upload the photo there, after its uploaded you get a choice of different link options, use the one for messageboards and paste here.

Thanks very much to both of you for taking the time to help me.

I hope to take part rather than lurk once I get past this "hurdle"

No, this is wrong.  Photos should not be hosted elsewhere, they should be uploaded to the discussion board. All photos hosted elsewhere eventually turn into a dead link red x.

Unfortunately I used the method that Joe says is not correct to post my one picture.

Any way to correctly post the picture and undo the error or do i just let it ride

Is there a way to access the images posted directly to the discussion board?  If I used an image last year to answer a question and that same image pertains to a post today, can I link to that old posting or edit/replace it if I have taken a better photo of that same coin?
