The easiest way is to open up a couple of browsers, starting the message you want to paste the pictures into. In the other browser, go to the Photo Gallery, select the upload link at the upper right, fill in the information on the form, being sure to select the correct section for *each* photo you're posting, and browse to the place on your computer that has the photos. The system will take care of resizing them, but it saves time to size them down beforehand if you can manage it.
Then when the confirmation page shows your uploaded photo, right click on the image and select properties. Copy the web address of the photo (ctrl-C) and switch to the other browser, click the image button (second row, fourth from the left) and paste in the link to the image between the {image} tags.

Easy, huh? OK, so it isn't really, but at least the price is right!

Many times you want to link to an already posted image. The problem is that the image shown is a background image, and is therefore "inaccessible" for right-clicking, presenting a 1 pixel gif on top of the image itself which leads to a broken image in the post.

In that case, select view source, look for the name of the image (appears at the title of the page, and inside the page URL, ends with .JPG), and copy the URL from there.

I'm not familiar with the yabb software, but it might be possible insert the image URL as a link underneath the image caption text. If you already have the image name used in the page title, add a base URL to it.

Here's another trick, and easier than looking at the source:
- in a second browser, open the photo page
- find the page with the thumbnail of the image you want
- right click on the thumbnail and select Properties
- copy the URL to the thumbnail (highlight, Ctrl-C)
- go to the browser with your message
- click the image button and between the {img} tags, paste the link (ctrl-V)
- edit the link to remove the "tn_" from the file name.
That's it.

And remove the last space before the ] on the end.

Got you pm Herb. Here's what ya gotta do. ImageFolio shows it's CGI in the address bar, so you gotta right-click and view the properties of the pic. Then you can copy/paste the address into a post.
