    I was uploading some photos today, and it said I couldn't upload more than 10 files. Is this how it normally is now or is there an issue with the number of uploaded files?

    Just copy and paste, like you would to paste a piece of artwork in an image editor into a Word Processor document.

    1) Load your picture into your favourite picture editor/display program.
    2) Select the portion you want to use and copy it (for which the Windows shortcut is Control-C).
    Or alternatively just screenshot it (for example in Windows, use the Snipping Tool).
    3) Then in the DIS message editor, just paste the image from the clipboard into your message (using Control-V).

    Thanks Andre. I think I have that part down, but the image I posted came up with a box with a little red X and 'IMG' next to it.

    I'm trying this process. I do not have the "upload photo" button and when dragging a picture in (.jpg, 174K - so size is not the issue) I see "Uploads are not available" superimposed over the post. Is there an option or membership level I am missing?

    Okay, that worked. I had to right click on the gif, do "Copy Image Location" then click on the "image" option in the post field and then past the URL there.
