    Is there a way of adding photos from my albums without knowing the URL? Or do I have to put them in my media first?
    Also is there a way of putting private photos in my media so only I can see them until I want to post them?

    OOps! That only goes to my album here on the forum. I meant is there a way to go to my personal computer albums and use pictures here. I believe the answer is NO!
    Thanks.

    You can upload files directly from your computer to a forum thread. Take a look at this guide.

    Car Cover.jpg Oh, now I remember. I was trying so hard to figure the new format I forgot that way of adding photos.
    Just click UPLOAD a FILE. That takes you to your albums in your computer. Choose the photo, open, then follow directions. Wagon Work (31).JPG

    Do we still have a limit on how many photos we can add total. I ran out a few times and had to delete old pictures.

    I started to count them, and there's something like 80 smilies to choose from. That's not enough. We need several hundred at least!

    Sorry, no. 150 is not enough. We need hundreds more. In fact, no matter how many are available, it will never be enough!
