Put the pictures in a photobucket or equivalent account

then use 'img' code to display

[img} "link to photo" [/img}

I changed the trailing ] to } so you can see

After hitting post reply you'll see a tab below the text box that says upload attachment. Pick on it.
Then pick where it says choose file. You should get this popup

Pick documents.
Find the photo you want to upload and pick it.
It will go back to the previous screen, pick add the file.
From there it will be an attachment. If you pick place inline it will appear as a picture and not just an attachment.
Also in the options make sure "disable BBCode" is unchecked.

Thanks for the info. I have tried the second method and a couple time its worked but mostly says the file is too large and i have no idea how to change this. I have not looked at the bbcode check part.

I just posted a screenshot of what ST tells me when I try to post a pic! Obviously the screenshot must be a smaller file to allow it to work as a couple other pics ive posted must have been. I need to work out how to change the pic/file size?

Ah! I found an app named 'Photo resizer' which seems to work ok but the pic loses some fine detail
