    You can attach an image, which should make it small like a thumbnail or you can do it the way I do it. This is the way I figured out how to turn my DWT gallery images into clickable url tumbnails for posts. There is probably an easier way. I do this to save room in a thread and for people who aren't interested won't want to click to see the bigger version.

    I am going to use this picture of yours:





    To make this thumbnail:


    1. Once you find the image you want to use, right click on it and look for properties. Within properties you will see a location. Copy and paste the location in image tags like these [IMG] and [/IMG]

    2. To make it a thumbnail, you need to include this "-thumb" before the .jpg part of the link.

    So in this example, I had this url:
    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/pho...Picture_57.jpg
    and inserted the -thumb like this:
    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/pho...e_57-thumb.jpg

    So the final product will look like this, except [] will replace the {}
    {img}http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/photos/data/500/673Picture_57-thumb.jpg{/img}

    (If you quote me, you can see exactly what I did.)


    Now you can also make it a clickable url in your thumb tags by following this format.



    {url=http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=3932}{img}http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/photos/data/500/673Picture_57-thumb.jpg{/img}{/url}

    I got the url=http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=3932 from the URL of your image, and I trimmed off the "&password=0&sort=1&cat=500&page=3" part.

    And what a great image to use as the demo, MandaBella!
