"Reuse" pics from previous posts?
#1
Over the past months I have piled up quite an amount of attachments (pictures). Now sometimes it happens that I would like to repost a pic that I have used on a previous post and that shows up in the list of my attachments.

Here's my question:
Is it possible to use those again, without having to upload them again as a new attachment?
It happened to me just now, when I posted in the "Show your wheels" thread, where I posted pics that I had posted before on several occasions.
Can that be done and if "yes" then how?
Huh

Where do you see your "list of attachments", Mike? On the website or on your computer?

On the bottom of the page when I type a reply.
I got the field where I type my text, underneath it there's the dark blue header that reads "Attachments" and right underneath that there is a lighter blue field that reads "You are currently using xxx MB of your allocated attachment usage" and there right behind it it says "(View my attachments)".
If you click that you get a list of all the attachments that you uploaded to the board.

Wow, I'd never seen that before. I have 9 pages of attachments. Ya, it would be cool to "reuse" the attachments. Can you right click the attachment and "save attachment address" and then try to post it again? I'll try it here:

Should see my new chrome valve covers that arrived today.

EDIT - OK you can see the link, but not the photo in the post. Still, it saves some space so you don't have to upload it again.

I don't think you can post the attachment links as pics but you can open the link in another window, right click and copy location. Then you can paste it as an image!

Oh, thanks Barry!
I'll give that a try right now. Let's see if something shows up:

That did not work. Next try:

Ok, I got it now. You gotta use the little "Insert Image" button on top of the text field with the mountains and the sun. Then paste the copied link into the bar.
Thanks a lot.
Got 7 pages of attachments piled up........
