Posting Photo's
I need some help knowing how to post my photo's. I know that on the toolbar there is a photo link, but is asks for the URL. All of my pictures are just saved in files on my laptop. Do I need to convert them to some web hosted thingy to post them here? Please help, I would like to share with you.

I think you have to have them hosted on a site, at least that's what I do. You can get free accounts at photobucket.com and other places I'm sure, and it's not too much of a hassle. That's how I do my photos

You can upload them directly from you computer by attaching them. When you are posting scroll down a bit to "manage attachments" and then use the browse button to find the image you want to upload.

You'll need to resize them first to about 500 pixels wide on the longest side and no more than 146kb. If you don't have software on your computer you can do it online, too.
Shrink Pictures Online
Resize to Mail
Picasa (free) You download this one and use it for resizing and other stuff to your photos.

To use the toolbar link you would have to have them in an online gallery or website.
