    I think it has to be hosted online. I've only ever been able to insert URL links.

    Ha! Otherwise Manolis would eat up the entire HBA server with his animations!

    Select the UPLOAD A FILE button (below the text entry window). After you upload your file, then you select the insert image button (full image or thumbnail). That’s what I see on my phone... I assume other platforms have the same buttons.

    There is a difference between posting on a thread and posting to a PM.

    Thread.....hit the add a file button under text

    PM......if you figure it out,let me know the secret because I can't post a pic or file into a PM either.

    To me, it seems like a flaw in the forum software implementation.

    IIRC, I think even the old software didn’t allow picture posting in PM’s.

    It’s not difficult to trade email addresses in a PM / “conversation” to use for transferring files or photos.

    I checked the settings and made a change. Now all should see:
    upload_2019-7-8_10-23-28.png

    At the bottom of the conversation box. Use the upload a file. Please check and make sure it works.
    This example is from a laptop.

    Responsiveness on the part of the admins... just another example of what makes this forum great!
