    I really don't know where else to ask in the forum. Is it possible to upload images when composing a PM? Ive had people send me PM's with images but I have not figured out how to do it. There does not seem to be an option as there is when posting to a thread.

    Thanks for the replies. I take it then that there is not an option available when replying in a conversation to upload a file. All I wanted to do was attach an image of a parcel with tracking number when advising the buyer that the parcel was on its way.

    I do it 1 of 2 ways. Open the photo in ms paint and resize to 700 pixels, then upload file. Or on a mobile upload the photo to imgur and then supply the link to the buyer, that should work.

    Sorry I missed that, yes there is. Just scroll down to where it says "upload file". Cheers.

    Here's another tip. Use the Australia Post App on your phone. Scan the tracking number into it (no typing). Once in put your finger on the tracking number and it will automatically copy it. Then send your message to the buyer by just pasting in the tracking number into your message. Works a treat and no typing.:)
