I found a really cute image online that I want to share with other PBS members.  I saved the image as a jpg file onto my computer and then tried to copy-and-paste this image onto a forum posting.  It didn't work.  Usually I know thow o add url or links to a forum post, but this particular image had no url or link associated with it for me to copy and paste onto forum posts.   I also couldn't use it as an attachment in a PM directly to another member. 

I guess I can upload it as an image through my own account settings onto my own signature line and then invite others to copy-and-paste directly from my forum signature line.  But I'm just wondering if there is any way to post directly onto forums those image files that DO NOT have any url or links associated with it?  Thanks for any technical advice on how best to share a really cute image!

I don't think there is any way to post a picture directly to a forum post. Best bet would be to upload in your settings, and put a note in your signature line that  the blinkie is there for the taking!
