    The MacBook is forcing me to use one of those sites like photo bucket and I can't stand all of the ad bullshit.
    I can't address the Windoze vs mac processes since I only use Windoze at work (so don't do much image posting), but I've been using Macs since about 1987 and I've never been forced to use photo bucket or any other hosting site. That said all my photos are either hosted on my own website or attached just like the rare times I attach files from a work computer.

    I second the pic request!!! I love seeing the insides of these engines.

    Apparently I am digitally challenged. I went to attach a photo from the Mac, so I could explain the process that was forcing me to use a hosting site… and what came up was completely different than what I had seen before. It was basically identical to what I see in Windows. Who knows what caused the difference….all I ever did was click on the little paperclip. Is there a downside from a security point of view loading them straight from a computer?

    Just a guess, because I haven't tried direct attachments to this site yet. It's easy to upload to your album of images.
    Images native on a Mac are in TIFF format which is the non-compressed format of JPEG images, this site probably expects Jpeg's. Try using your preview application to export your images to a local folder as a Jpeg with some compression applied and then try attaching that file instead.
    Reducing the dimension of the image file to half or less during this process will also reduce the size of the output file and prevent the file from being larger then most sites allow for upload. It has little to do with security, Macs can open older Windows, Apple and any UNIX volumes transparently, Windows never could open Mac volumes, you're just not used to playing with so much power.

    I'd take that potato pic and frame it as a still life...
