Can someone please tell me how to include a pic that has been posted, in my reply to that posting?

1. Cursor into the oicture
2.Right click
3. View Image
4.Left click the address towards top of screen - to highlight it
5. Ctrl C to copy address to clipboard
6. Exit & start your reply
7. When you want the picture to appear Ctrl V to paste the address
8. Type {img}http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx{/img} hard up against the address (where xxxxxxxx represents the address.  EXCEPT the brackets must be [] and not {} (This post gets confused & tries to post the picture at address xxxx because of the script if I used the correct [] brackets)

9. If you want to quote more than one photo then paste the addresses into a Word doc temporarily

TokTok, that works for hosted pics.  If you want to quote a pic uploaded directly onto the forum have a look at http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=7766.msg112000#msg112000
