What are the icons?

I've just started noticing these little icons like tiny houses after the titles of some threads. On the GW Home page I see they are to do with images. What are their significance on the house plant forum, does anyone know?

From what I can tell, it means the opening post of a thread contains a picture.

They look like camereas.

I thought that might be it, but then I saw that the thread entitled 'Sad dracena' doesn't have any picture, so I got to puzzling again. Or is there a picture and I can't see it?

Sorry, I see that thread should be 'Sad Dracaena'.

I think these camera icons are 'new' thing, noticed them only very recently. Could it be associated with new 1 photo upload feature?

Rina, I believe you're right.

The upload thing has been there for weeks but not the icon, which I don't remember seeing before today. Just glad somebody's doing some updating!

purple, that's true. I checked few of the threads, and icon seems to show up if there is a post with 1pic feature just very recently...as you say, at least they are doing some updating - perhaps in baby steps...Rina

Hey the pic/camera icon "knows" I embedded pics in a post from a 3rd party. Slick!

Thanks very much for the explanations. All is clear now.
