    Works best if you expand DX Chat into FULL SCREEN mode...

    Locate the pic - and understand too - that many pics are PROTECTED and may or may not allow others to cross-share their works (Personal and Private versus Public)

    So if you have the URL - the box you need is IMG command...

    upload_2020-8-20_8-49-45.png

    NOTE:
    *.JPG, *.GIF and some others are allowed, but .BMP and .TIFF may not work.

    upload_2020-8-20_8-40-44.png
    Look for the PHOTO or IMAGE icon...
    upload_2020-8-20_8-42-22.png
    Click on it...
    You'll see this on the "Chat Text Box"
    upload_2020-8-20_8-43-50.png
    Amplified/Magnified view...

    upload_2020-8-20_8-46-40.png

    Then post your text like you'd do with any chat text, and in moments it's should post.​

    Well, I just got slapped...

    You'll need to also embed the URL of your pic...
    upload_2020-8-20_9-8-40.png

    So, it's the URL of the image in the URL brackets too) See above...

    Andy gave good info...it can be tricky.
    Picture must be web-based with URL...it will not let you upload from your hard drive, unless you move picture to "cloud" address.
    Andy is also correct if picture has copyright from Getty/Pinrest ... etc. it just give you a big RED X...
    All the Best

    Actually, you can do that.
    Go to the forum "test" area,
    select any posted thread, and choose "reply" (or create a new thread).
    then select "upload a file",
    point it to any pic on your computer upload it to the forum.
    then copy the URL it creates and paste it to the chat IMG box.

    On my phone i click "upload a file" then choose where that file is comimg from. Dont know anything about urls and copying addresses to post a pic. Sounds much more complicated.
