Can anyone show me how to add pics to messages here as copy/paste isn't the answer.

go to tinypic.com and upload your pics, then simply copy and paste the <img>...</img> line provided http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

As blue_76 indicates, you must upload images to a web address such as www.tinypic.com (http://www.tinypic.com) . You can also upload image files to www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com) or www.flickr.com (http://www.flickr.com) (great for creating online photo albums which you can share with friends/family etc)

In case you don't already know, for images to be visible in a web browser they must be JPEG or GIF format. If the image file you have on your PC is a BMP or other file format then you will need a program to convert it to a JPEG (JPEG is usually best for most types of image).

SH3 uses the BMP format for the screenshot files it produces, so you would need to convert them. I batch-convert my screenshots from BMP to JPEG using ReaConverter Pro (http://www.reasoft.com/products/reaconverter/).

Another way to add images to a forum post is to click the image button (http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/styles/images/ubb_code_img.gif ) in the message/reply window toolbar. You can then enter the image URL (preferably copy and paste it), for example:

http://tinypic.com/makr2a.jpg
