Hi Simon,
  Once you've hit reply, there is a choice at the bottom of the window "Attachments and other options"

  If you hit that it asks you to select file and you just browse and find the file.

  If it complains about the filename being in use then you need to change filename to something that other rootschatters haven't used in the past - maybe add Duck to the end of the filename.

  Hope this helps ...

Remember as well there are some forums that you can't post images on - I've been caught out on that a few times.

Remember that the file size needs to be below the 500kb Limit too.

And if you're posting from an iPad, no go!  You will need to change the name from "image"!  I haven't been able to figure out how to do that in the iPad, but now I just email them to myself from the ipad, then pick up the email in my PC?  From there I can change the name to something more appropriate, resize it, and I can then post from the PC to the forum!
