How does an individual go about placing a photograph on a TMP posting?

Thanks for any assistance!

Host it on a picture site somewhere or even your own blog and post the picture link in your TMP message.

You can copy the picture link from the 'properties' of the image.

I have also found that you must have the link you paste end in a dot jpg or gif format. If any additional formatting is carried over in the pasting it sees it as a link rather than a graphic.

As Jim says.

(see link mentioned by MajorB)

The above helped me out recently. I went for Flickr as a host. Have fun!

This image was quickly selected from my photos via Tinypic. Here are some notes I made from a helpful post on TMP previously:

Tiny pictures
You can use your own photos. For instance, let's say you want to post a picture located on your PC, mobile phone, etc.
Go to an online image hosting site like this one:
It asks you to browse your files to select the photo you want to post. It asks what size you want, so choose a thumbnail size. It will come out fine and not really a thumbnail size.
It offers several formats. For sites like TMP, Left click on 'forums and message boards' (not 'websites' for TMP). Follow the instructions, copy and paste the url directly into TMP and Bobs your uncle.
