AS far as I'm aware you cannot attach documents in either PM's or Look Up Requests.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Personal Messages are for just that - personal data.
I wouldn't class a photograph as personal data?

If it pertains to an existing topic, then add it to the topic.

If you are trying to send it to a person who has asked for a copy of the photograph, then use PM to exchange email addresses, and send it via email.

I don't know how it was done but I received a PM with images.
It was over a year ago and the person hasn't been on line since Sept 2017 but I'll send them a PM and ask how they did it.

I just used the Quote to send the message and can now see all the images are from Photobucket
address appears to be inserted between [img widht=number height=Number]http://etc[/img]

Number and etc obviously changes depending on the image

I haven't sent the PM

Thanks Hallmark - I did try the image and the brackets came up, but couldn't see a way to attach anything.  Where are the "quotes"?  Can see them when we are on a topic, but not in PM's?
