I was just on another site doing a look up for a probate record and was really impressed that I could just snip the relevant information and upload it onto a thread.
It would also enable photographs to also be uploaded onto a thread enabling members to ask for advice on dating etc....

This got me thinking as this too is a SMF could we have this feature enabled. :-D

It would be helpful to be able to post/share images on a thread,

At the moment you can do this using your "Shared media" in the keepsafe which can be difficult for new members to get to grips with

Natasha in your update you say we can use Keepsafe, however this does not work if for example if trying to age a photograph. The flow of the thread would be interrupted if you have to keep going to keepsafe to review the photograph. It would be far better to be able to add it to the thread.
