The forum software I use to not have a function to upload a photograph yet. You must upload the photograph to a server elsewhere and then paste the link in your post.
You can store images for free at web sites like Imageshack. see http://www.imageshack.us/
Upload the image there, and then copy and paste the link they provide into your post using the [img] tags.

I tested Imageshack and it works quite nicely. It even has a button where you can say "create forum code" and it will give you the correct code to enter into your forum post.

I usually make use of http://www.photobucket.com for this, they also automatically generate the <img> code.

I can't believe that this is the only photo that I have of my 2.7i. Hilux! I have literally hundreds of my other two Toy's in various stages of refurbishment. This specific photo from the rear was taken to send to the Pretoria Traffic Dept, who had kindly sent me a summons for speeding through their fair city through the post, which was quite amazing as this vehicle has never been to Tswane. I was lucky in tracing the traffic violation on the internet, and the guilty party drove a green Ford SC bakkie with a number plate similar to mine (except for a "7" where I have a "2". This happened twice within a period of three years, and both times they simply cancelled the fine. I now keep this photo (as well as the picture of the guilty offender!) on permanent record, for the next time!

And when uploading a photograph, PLEASE try to keep the width less than 600 pixels, 500 is actually enough. Otherwise we stretch the pages and you have to keep on scrolling to read the text. Large pictures also makes it difficult for dial-up users to enjoy the forum.
