I feel really dumb, but I havent figured out how to post a photo. It asks for the url, but My photos are either in EA games files or in My Pics. Do I do it as an attatchment cause I don't think that would work the way I want, or do I copy and Paste?

Your best bet is to upload them into a site like ImageShack or Photobucket and post the urls through the little button above the text box (where you type) that looks like a photo of a mountain (it's beside the link button).

Hm ... I wonder ... can you give the link to where you are hosting the photos?

OK ... the link does work.  However the photo is too big for the forum, so I deleted it after my test.
 
When you copy your link, make sure it's only the one that has the address on it.  Not the [url] thing.  Then you should be able to paste it into the pop up box (the one you get when you click on the mountain picture)

Right, but when I do it for a post, it shows a red X is that just until I actually post it, and how do I make it smaller? Cause that's just scary.

To make it smaller you will have to use your photo imaging software (ie: photoshop, paint shop ... that sort of thing). I know there is a free online one somewhere, I just don't have the links handy. A Google search should help.

I can get the photo to show up, but I have re-sized to thumbnail both in Roxio and at photobucket and it still comes out huge. ( I' m starting to feel like a total moron here, how am i screwing this up?) Thanks for all the help so far.

resizing a photo requires you have a little lesson about digital images.

Screen resolution plays a key role in the perceived size of an image.  The web standard is 72 pixels per inch (72dpi) - the screen you are looking at as you read this is using roughly the same standard.

Some images (such as scanned photos and photos from a digital camera) tend to have larger DPI settings since they are meant to have a lot of detail so they can be printed (most printers tend to be 300 DPI) - so when you see the image on screen it looks bigger than it does when printed.  That is because the printer concentrates the data for a better more richly coloured result.

So what is 1024x768 (a normal screen size) may print out about the size of a large Christmas postage stamp.

Now, when you see the HUGE image on your computer - you will need some sort of image software that can reduce the image size (say to 800x600) - the dpi setting is unimportant here - since no matter the DPI setting - the computer monitor will most likely display only 72 pixels per inch regardless of DPI.

You can use Adobe Photoshop, Gimp, Microsoft Picture It, or any of 100s of others programmes to resize the image.  How this image displays in the software will vary - so the only important matter is the size in pixels.
