How do I post pictures of my guitars that are stored on my hard drive? It only asks for a URL. I don't have them posted online. They're on my hard drive on my laptop. Thank you so much in advance. Have a blessed day.

I just created an Imgur account, throw pics up there, and link them. Lots of other forums I'm a member of let you click & drag pics from your hard drive to the post, but this one doesn't.

At first it annoyed me, but then I realized that Imgur was great for resizing, rotating, croping pics, so now I'm a fan.

Just an FYI from the Imgur site. “Currently editing is only available using desktop and not on our apps or mobile web”. Took me awhile to figure this out when I was trying to post pictures stored only on my iPad.

You need to use a 3rd party hosting site like Imgur or Postimage and then use the forum share code that they supply and put it in this text box

Postimage looks like this and I use the hotlink for forums share code
