1.Go to attachments below your post and click on it. 

2.  then click Browse.

3.  find your photo and (having made sure it has a unique name - add your own initials is one good way to ensure this) check that the size is OK - 600dpi maximum on longest side is recommended for most boards, . . . . .  but for photo restores you can post up to 500kBs at 300dpi scan if possible.
Thanks so much Wiggy - must have been having an OP day :)

4 if you are attaching snips for deciphering for example, make sure they are snips, not whole pages which could infringe copyright.

Cheers, and I hope that helps.  See attachment to this post for assistance.

I thought you did it through the attachments bit, but can't remember how?

Have just tried to do it on a new post I am trying to make, and only the Attachments and other options with the 3 little boxes comes up. Are you not allowed to attach things to forum posts?

Sorry I left my daughter playing with it and she didn't say she'd succeeded.

Sorry.
