    • Only one image per album can be a cover. If you want the image to be a cover of an album ( the one seen in your profile), then choose a selected dot by the image.


    Remember that the general rule that prohibits posting adult, offensive, or illegal content, applies also to the images in your albums.

    In addition:
    It is possible to moderate image comments of others in your own albums.
    This means you can unapprove, approve and soft-delete comments that are made in the albums you created.

    (Note: if it comes to our notice that members abuse these extra abilities we will disable this feature.)

    Hi shootermagavin...

    Yes, there is. One, you could use a photo site like photobucket.

    But you can also click on GO ADVANCED when replying. Then click on the paperclip icon. Choose the image you want to upload, and then click UPLOAD. Then, once that's done, close that upload box, and click on the paperclip again. and you will see a list of your uploaded item(s) for that post. Click on the one you want inserted into the post, and it will put it into your post and will appear as text like this: [ATTACH]1234[/ATTACH]

    Then when you post, you won't see that big attach box around it. You will still have to click on the image to see its full size, however. I hope that helps.
