Please follow this little guide to help you post photos with your ad. Any ad pictures in the photo gallery will be deleted.

What's a URL? It's the address of where your photo is located. For example the image below is from Photobucket.com. Above the picture is an address that starts with "http://" and finishes with ".jpg" This is the address that you paste into the above dialogue box.

When you click "Ok" you will find the address that you have pasted surrounded by

In your New Thread post below the box where you type there are "Additional Options"
There is a box call "Attach Files" with a button called "Manage Attachments"
Click the
and a dialogue box comes up. It will look like this

From here it's a simple as choosing a file from your computer and clicking the upload button.

Good luck.
