This is an awesome feature. I've been avoiding images because of the pain that Photobucket is.

For new users, you just need to resize so the total image size is under about 300k.

Thank you Morgan.

First forum I've ever been on where you have to pay to access certain features.

Not me, I've seen several like that.

Doesn't work for me. When I try I just get the following message:

We encountered a problem. The reason reported was:
You have exceeded your limit of 1 attachments.

Return to the previous page or use search if you are looking for something specific.


???

And I have only tried to attach one picture.

Edit: i get it now, it just doesn't show up in "preview reply", but it's there with "post reply. Test image shown below. Thanks Morgan!

Peter, Things goes slowly forward
as site sponsor you can now upload 1MB images and 10 in total as attachment to a single regular post, 6 posts to gallery threads.

triumphdave: when you upload images as attachment they will show as grouped thumbnails.
if you for example upload multiple images you can either look at the thumbnails which are in 200px size or you can click on a thumbnail to open a 800px image.
If there are multiple you can click on next arrow.
When you upload an image you can write a explanation in the form before you chose and upload it.
If important you can actually after you posted the image pick it up and rightclick and copy the URL for the image and then edit your text and put it where you want the large image..

a 1MB max size will be applied to premium members for now.
