Click the link icon (it's to the left of the paper clip icon) and use the browse dialog box to locate your file. Select it and then insert the link. Use the Preview button if you want to test the link and see if it works correctly.

For files bigger than 1MB, go to a free file hosting website such as (,, and click on the Upload button. Then navigate to your file and select it, and click the Start Upload button. When the uploading has completed you will be given a link to download the file. Copy the link and paste it in your question, and the Experts will be able to click on the link to download the file.

I guess I'm a little slow . . . I don't see any paper clip or chain icon to click on. If I can get my pictures into DropBox and send you the "address" via this means will that work? I haven't used drop box much and never for pictures, but I do have an account there whereas I don't with the photo sites.

No worries, I can give you an estimate without images...just helps narrow the range a bit.


Most of these retail from $1,200 to $1,500 in average and functional condition and honestly are more valued by collectors for their cases. This one, for example, is being offered by a private seller for $950...




The more elaborate the case, the better the price! Best, Will
