Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can you upload pictures from your pc files to PMs?.If I try I only get the option to upload using URL,unlike when uploading pictures to a forum site where you get a choice of URL or from your compter.
     
  2. You dirty old man. Stop pesting.

  3. You can paste them in. Don't know what size you can go up to though. Sent you one.
     
  4. Wondered what the hell your PM was about,makes sense now.
    So if you copy and paste as you would text it works.
     
  5. Do you not want any more pictures then?
     
  6. No.
     
  7. Fair enough.You only had to say and I would have stopped.
     
  8. Cut and past didn't work for me

    To put this to bed, you can't upload images in to PMs. There is quite a lengthy discussion on this in the support forums for the software we use and the conclusion was that this is probably a good idea so that we don't have unseen unwanted images on our server. If everything is public then there is a degree of control.

    The way around this is to use a photo hosting site such as Google Picassa and put a link to the image in your PM. They will show up, but they are sitting on someone else's server, not ours. There is a button in the editor to add an image - but if not you can do it like this:

    [IMG]http://link_to_my_pic.com[/IMG]
