depends...

1. if the picture in the email is just a "link" to a picture ... just copy/paste the link to the message with [img] coding around it.


2. if the picture is actually an attachment then you need to download the picture from the email to your hard drive and the upload the picture to the signature tester thread in the picture forum. Then link to the picture with the [img] coding in the new thread.

now the next step...

attachments don't show in the first post of a thread, that's why you post it in the signature tester thread first.

now you "hotlink" to your sigtest picture in your regular thread

right click on picture > properties

in the pop up window you'll see a direct link address to picture ... like this.

[i m g]http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/attachment.php?attachmentid=43600&stc=1[/i m g] (without spacing)


now, use the direct address to show picture in first post of thread with [img]coding.
