As I have said already you can not attach images to pms. The image button that hallmark is showing you is when you wish to include a image that is embedded in a website, pressing this button would include part of the webpage.

The image in a PM has to be a web address, I think, not from your computer, hence the ones I got were from Photobucket.

or what sarah said ;D

I find that very unsatisfactory.
We are not allowed to attach anything copyright to a forum message, but there should be no objection in a PM as it's for the purpose of private study and is not being published.
So why does RootsChat not allow it?
That is not a rhetorical question!

The simple answer is that you can use the PM system to exchange email addresses, phone numbers, mailing addresses, etc. so that you can then share other information.
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.

But you can attach snippets of certificates (etc) for the purposes of deciphering.

I have replied to the ladies post and by email, this topic has been ticked completed.

It has never been an option, just the same reason as my local butcher does not sell pints of beer or ladies frocks and you can't get a cup of tea poured down the telephone line.
