Lee you can still upload your own pics here in your own folders, it's in the same place it was before for me
I know I can still upload my own pics. But before, under those smilies on the right hand side of the post box, there's [my picture] and when you click it, it will bring up those in a special folder and you can easily attached to your post just like standard smilies. It wasn't working before the upgrade and was gone afterward.
I can still open my MTF gallery on another window but it's not as easy as before.
