    Mike,
    Why can't we post Pictures more then once? I've tried to post the same pics in different threads (business card info) and because I already put it in another thread the site won't let me do it?
    Thanks
    Mike

    If you go to your original post, right click on the image and hit copy image location.

    When you go to your new post, just hit the insert image, and paste the URL into the box. Then your already posted image can be reused as many times as you want.

    Mick,

    To repost the same pic in a different thread, just save it under a different file name on your computer. Works every time. All 3 pix the same here. Thumbs Up

    I tried with the whole right click thing... its allows me to copy but not paste to the new thread..... I've tried the resave under a different file and even though I put in a different name plowsite says the picture has already been posted!....aarrgghhhh!

    Maybe its me with the disliking the nationals thing?...LOL.... JK Mike!...LOL

    instead of just "renaming it" try to slightly alter the pic and then save it again under a new name

    I never tried that way but after seeing your post, I see this works also. Thanks for the tip.

    Mick- find the pic you want to repost. Right click and choose properties. You will see a http link to the pic. Copy that link and insert as an image. Should work unless MJD has that pic flagged or something LOL.

    After you right click and copy the image location, You have to use insert image and not attachments like you normally would.
