    This thread should help.

    Basically, you have to have them hosted somewhere that allows linking. I use www.Photobucket.com with no problems at all.

    Then you copy the URL and put IMG tags around it [​IMG]
    This can be done by clicking the image button and pasting the URL into the pop-up window.

    *hint* Photobucket also gives you the URL with IMG tags...so all you need to do is copy & paste right into your post.

    well, the image has to be on a server somewhere... then you klick on that small icon above the window you type the message in. the icon which looks like a postal stamp ... yellowish with grey mountains and a sun. then you get a window to enter that image's url

    I checked your 'field of frost' post...and you used the link tags/button ...and not the image tags/button [I...d the URL of the image has to end with ".jpg"

    The problem is that you are putting in the URL of the web page with the image on it...and not the URL of the actual image. I don't think that your site will allow linking anyway. I can't even get the URL of the image on your site because it has right-click protection.

    If you want to display your images...it looks like you will have to host your images on a different site.
