    Step 4: You image should appear in the text field, when your done simply click "Post Reply" and your image along with your post will be available to the community for viewing as they read the forum thread.

    Of course there is the option of simply uplaoding the image through a link, this can be normally be achieved by clicking the tree icon and then pasting the direct URL to the image... unfortunantly this doesn't always work in which case you have to type a little BB code:
    [IMG]Image link goes here[/IMG]

  10. what if the picrure is off the internet?
  11. Do you use Window?

  13. Right click, then save the picture. Then upload it:)
  14. Then that is the bit at the bottom of he post, I'll repeat myself though:

    Copy the link of the image you want (This can be achieved by right clicking on the image and then clicking "Copy link address" or something similar to copy image URL.
    When you want to insert the image type the following
    [IMG]image URL or address goes here[/IMG]
    Does this help you?
    If not try copying the link of the image and then clicking on the tree button in the edit post options thing, put the link in there ;)

    If your really having trouble I'll do an image tutorial for this method also :D
