A Registered Member of our community, logging into the site with username and password can ONLY view the pictures included as attachments with the messages here. They too can view pictures attached in all the forums except those in IL'ite meet-ups in Our Community Forum. This can be viewed only by Registered members with more than 50+ posts (i.e Junior IL'ite onwards). Those who are NOT registered / NOT logging-in (basically visitors) will only be able to view the messages. They cannot view the attachments in it. On the other hand, if the picture in a message is embeded as part of the message (like in this post), by hotlinking to another site (say to the photos in FlickR, Photobucket, etc.), it can be viewed by all (Registered members & Visitors). Also, please check this FAQ about viewing the picture attachments.
