Wow I must be getting old, I've tried every with no luck. I'm certain I will feel stupid if someone explains.
Thanks guys. The old lame guy! P.S. I have no problem inserting pics in a post.

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...

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

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"

Amplified/Magnified view...

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

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.

    There was an issue early on with the chat where the messages where the color white, so you couldn't see it. I wasn't sure if I fixed it for only myself or everyone. How does it look?
