Default Private Messaging

I can't seem to find any site info on how to attach a picture/image to a Private Message.
I know it's possible because I recently received one.
There's no 'drag-and-drop' function, or recognizable button...???

Ahhh, I do believe you're right, Rick. I went back and looked at the msg., and it wasn't the pic, it was a link (Google) to a picture.
I should try that.

I just tried to attach one to you and couldn't find any way (copy/paste, drag and drop) to do it within the forum.

There is no way to attach a picture to a PM

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

From time to time I get a PM asking questions which, to make the answer clear require photos, in which case I ask the member to send me their email address.

Maybe when Mark started the forum that was his intent. Otherwise it seems odd that we don't have the ability to attach files.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
