First of all, I just wanted to tell you that your picture is the cutest! You remind me so much of my Grandma and from what I've read, you're just as sweet as she is!
As for linking pics, I use Imagestation and I found that it's the easiest to use. Once you register at IS, then you can upload photos that you have saved on your computer. Then once you've uploaded them, you can make albums for them to be in. I have a couple albums of just my cats and then one of misc junk. Once your pics are uploaded, click on the picture so it is the only one on the screen. Then right click, go to properties and copy the URL (the big long code). Then come back to TCS and click the IMG button right above the message in the thread. In that box, paste the URL code there. You can do this several times to get several pictures in a post. Before you, post your message it's best if you preview your post. That way you can tell if you're picture is showing up or not.
I know that it may sound difficult and overwhelming at first, but actually it isn't as hard as it seems. If you need help you can always get ahold of me and I'll help you the best that I can. Also there is a thread about posting pictures...I believe it's a sticky button in the Cat Lounge.
Good luck Hon and love the picture!
