I'm fairly sure there's no EASY* way to link the actual pictures (so they display in the message) any more, but it is easy to post links to photos or Albums.

If links are that what you're after, then just go to Options -> Get Link, on any photo/album. It doesn't matter about permissions.
That'll give you a URL to post here like this between [ url ] tags, like this...
Code: Select all
[url]https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153167485740446&l=5288614d87[/url]
Which will end up looking like this... (obviously you need to click it!)
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153167485740446&l=5288614d87

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Note: There is a way to do this, but I wouldn't suggest it's EASY (or permanent). If you view any of your FB images in full screen, right-click and "Copy Image URL".

Any other ways appreciated. What you have to realise is that some people coming on to the forum have no idea about computers so
everything has to be baby steps so they can follow it. It may take a lot of reading but hopefully they will get it ;)
