On AOL, you will have to go to the "My FTP" area; you can find it by using "my ftp" in the keyword search. Once there, you can use the "Upload Files" button to transfer files from your hard drive to your personal FTP site, which is different than your home page; just follow the directions. If you want to add an image to a post in the forum just click on the Image link below the dialog box. Insert the URL of the image between the inside brackets. It will be of the format http://members.aol.com/username/directory/filename, where username is your AOL screenname, directory is a location that you can create in your FTP site, and the filename is the actual filename of the image.


The easiest way to get this is to click on the image after you have uploaded it. Once it's displayed, right click on the image and then select "Properties". Within the properties box the actual URL of the image will be displayed. Using the mouse, highlight the URL, right click on the highlighted area and select copy. You can then paste it between the image brackets in your post. Let me know if you still have questions.
