    Is it possible to insert photos into private messages please? I couldn't see a way of doing it....but I  may have missed it.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    If it's a picture in the gallery - yours or someone else's - open a new tab to go to the gallery and grab the [ img]  address (there's a "copy" function to help you).



    Then paste it into your message.

    If the pic you want is elsewhere online, click the "insert image" icon... it will paste [ img] and  [ /img] , waiting for you to provide information between them. (Note, I had to add an extra space in "[ img] here to allow it to display and not to be a command!)



    Go to the image, right-click it and select "copy image address". Paste that like so:



    Now click the "Preview" button and you'll see a preview of your message complete with image.



    (I chose a small image, but you can have larger ones!)

    All this works in the standard messaging too.

    Click the pics to make them larger.

    That is excellent and useful information, Hound, thanks!

    What if the picture I want is in the gallery of my phone?

    P.S. ....this is ironic because I was going to send the picture in a PM to you!!   :008:

    You'll have to upload it to the gallery here - might be easier to Bluetooth it to your computer first. Or get its image address from any platform you upload to, eg Arsebook. Or perhaps you can find an image address if the pic is stored in your Google images. First option is easiest methinks!  :001:
