Select "Post Reply" not "quick" reply and you will have the little paper clip icon available to add an attachment. Photos must be small enough too of course.

As said, click on blue "Post Reply" button after last post in the thread. Down below the text box that appears is a red line titled "Additional Options". Below that red line is a window titled "Manage Attachments". Click on the window and a 'Choose File" box appears. Click "Choose File" and add pictures from your computer, then click on "upload". I use the 600x400 size to upload. Once uploaded, you can click on "Preview Post" to see if the picture will be present when posted.

Another way is to select "Go Advanced" next to "post reply" and you will see the paper clip icon. Click that and a new box will come up marked "Manage Attachments"
From there you click "Browse" for the desired image you want to post.

I don't know about this paper clip icon some of you refer to. I don't see anything like that on my Windows 7 laptop using Chrome browser. I just use the "manage attachments" window down below this box to add whatever photo I have stored on my computer or flash drive.

I can't find a paper clip icon, either. It's not needed anyway, because when I click the blue "post Reply" button the text box comes up with the "manage attachments" below.

When you click on "post reply" a new message box window comes up .Inside the upper part of that box is a large A then to the right is a smiling face-to the right of that is the paper clip.

If you've ever got a picture that you'd like to show bigger you can do that by uploading your picture to PhotoBucket, copying the Direct URL of the photo, clicking on the yellow "insert image" icon just below and to the right of the paper clip,



pasting the link to your picture in that box and clicking OK. That will show a picture this size without having to click on a thumbnail:

Ok, now I see the paper clip too. It gives the same results as using the "manage attachments" window below so I guess there are two methods to get the same results. Photobucket works well too but they have become pretty heavy with ads when using the site.
