    Hello,

    Sorry for such a simple question. I need to send screenshot to a user according to PM. I cannot find anywhere to add attachment or image in advanced or simple mode, I can attach in posts. In the forum others mentioned they PM'd him their screenshots they have less posts than I do so it can't be that. I've tried both firefox and chrome.

    I've searched through the FAQ's and couldn't find anything...Can someone please help?

    Thanks,

    Jilly

    If you want to send an image via PM, you need to upload it to somewhere like imgur or gyazo and paste the direct link in the PM. As yet, there's no way to display them in the same way as on posts.

    Gyazo is also a great tool for this. It's probably easier to use than imgur for screenshots.
