    How do I upload images of my Colt45 government issue with a new thread.
    When I click on the "insert image' button, I am asked to enter the URL of the image. The images are on the desktop of my computer.

  7. Welcome to the forum Joes.....

    I'm kind of a newbie too...but it's a great place......

    I store my images to post on Photobucket

    Tip: If you want to post an image that's allready on the web......

    Right click on the image and go down to properties.

    highlight the whole url with your mouse until it's all in blue.

    Do a "control " & "C" on your keyboard. that will copy it to your clipboard.

    Go back to the reply box at TFF and place the cursor where you want the image.

    on the keyboard do a "Control" & "V" , that will pase what you have copied.

    before the http type [​IMG]

    do a preview post to verify the image you wanted is there and you haven't typoed.
