Default Submitting a "How To"

I've typed up a document in Word which includes pictures.

I've tried copying the document into the New Thread & it loads all text but no pictures.

How do I copy it & get it to include the pics?

The pictures must be uploaded to a host. Then you put in the tags to each picture. I use my photobucket account as the host.

When I am preparing a large post like a how-to, I typically use notepad, but have used word before. Word helps because you can put the pictures in and then code out the img tags under each picture. I like hand coding the pictures because I always use the automatic thumbnails that photobucket creates to cut down on the bandwidth from my photobucket account.

if you read the first post youll see he already tried that, he got the text to copy over but not the pictures.
