So what I tried is:
1. attach a pic from my computer through the "Manage Attachments" that displayed a url "http://lincolnforums.com/forum/images/attach/jpg" in the file address here on the forum. I then put this address into the IMG dialogue box for a URL and pressed OK, but there was a message saying invalid file and the only info to post is the attachment.
2. In a separate post I tried the IMG option directly and clicked on IMG icon and selected the computer file option and uploaded the same picture. The picture posted.
Continental with 255-45R19 MXM4 tires.jpg
When this is done in one post (as in this case) the attachment component is eliminated and only the IMG file is displayed, but in a small format. So I am not following your instructions very well.

Once you attach and upload your photo, click the thumbnail to enlarge the photo, then right click and "copy image address" pictured here. (this is a screen shot from my computer, of your photo)
Then edit your post. On a fresh line without any text, type [img] [/img], (upper or lower case letters work) then paste the image address between those tags. Make sure the tags & URL address touch on both ends & it should now show as the large size...
I hope this helps.

American Luxury, I cannot answer for Slick Fan, but I am on Windows 10 and it sucks, I would rather be on XP where my software works great. Windows 10 will not run anything properly on my PC, not even Hyper V virtual environment so that I can emulate an XP environment and run my software.
Slick Fan is very smart to stay on XP.

Really? I love Windows 10. I haven't had any issues since I downloaded it the day it was released. It's actually not a good idea to run XP at this point as Microsoft no longer supports it. At the very least I would be running Windows 7.1989 Chrysler LeBaron 66,000 miles
2013 Ford Taurus 46,000 miles

Town, I'm glad I could help.
It took me about two hours one day, for it to finally play nice with my scanner. Haha!
Oh well, nothing stays the same for long, computers are constantly evolving. I just wish Windows 10 didn't take such a drastic leap from XP.
