    I have never tried it before, but was going to send pictures via PM this morning, but there is no option to add from computer (as with normal posts) only from URL.

    Host the images on www.imgur.com, then link to them. You can create an account on imgur so you can delete or change privacy of the images whenever you want. I find it much easier to use and quicker to load than photobucket.

    Thanks for the reply. I know about imgur & photobucket, but I am able to add pictures directly from my computer when posting a thread but not in private messages for some reason.
    I am hoping someone from admin will see this thread, it maybe just a setting ?

    I agree, Perrari. Why can't I load from my computer? I can in some places and not in others. Why should I have to join these other things like imgur and photobucket when I don't want to? I too am hoping it's just a setting somewhere.

    Park your images on your blog or website and link to them there if you don't want to use a 3rd party.

    There are lots of solutions to remote host images, but the question really is why isn't there the option to host directly from your computer in a PM, when that option exists in other forum functions?
