Joe,

I'm clueless about tech stuff. What do I do with that code? How does it magically transport a photo from my computer to the forum?

Thanks,

Tom

Tom, it would be easier for me to do it than it would be to explain it. I’ll try to help you, I sent you a pm.

Tom,
What Joe is helping you with is the fact that the Forum itself does not host photos. You need to have a place for it on the internet (lots of options there), and then you link to that by embedding its URL.

Tom,

Someone posted a video on how to do it here. It's not perfect, so if you need any help here is my email address: joelyons456 @ gmail.com

Glad to help anyone who creates Texas Hold'em magic and whose favorite magician is Del Ray :)

Hi, Tom:

I think tinypic http://tinypic.com/ is a very easy, free image hosting site. You just upload your picture and it gives you the link you need to post a picture on a forum. Just copy the link that the tiny pic site gives you after uploading and then paste it into your Genii forum post and voila!

Now, if someone would please fix the youtube button on GF, I'd be so happy! ;)
