    Click on the Paperclip icon in the menu bar of the message window (editing window).

"Selected" files in the Attachment Window are the ones ready to be attached to your message. To select a file, drag it into lower Attachment Window. Click on the check box lower right. If there are other files in the Picture Window you wish to attach, drag them to the Attachment Window and Select them (click on them).

    You can edit the size and location as described above.


    Here are the file types that may be uploaded. Disregard the "Max File Size" column. It has been superseded by much larger numbers.

    Make sure that your pic is oriented correctly (right-side up instead of sideways) before you send it. If it isn't, the Message Board software can't rotate it for you.
