Default how do I

How do I display a picture in the box below whatever message I write in. The area where everybody has pics of their car. Once I am in the profile area then what do I do to add a pic

You would use the same code as putting a pic in a message:

[ img ] l.link to pic [ /img ] (Without the spaces)

Do a "Quote" on this message to see the code for the image below

You can't, it has to be uploaded to somewhere on the web. If you need an image hosting site, i've had good luck with www.photobucket.com

Nice pic

Just do me a favour and reduce the image size for our dial up members. If you have photo shop or some kind of image manipulation software, reduced the size to 500x300 pixels.

Thanks in advance

Yeah, Paint'* "stretch/skew" is the simplest way to hack pictures down to a more dial up friendly size. (I'm sure most people know that, but I thought I'd throw it in anyways).
