Man, Fuse, what errors or problems were you facing?  I'm using postimages.org, and doing it is a snap.  The longest part is getting it to postimage.  Once it is there, it is just a matter of copying the "Direct URL" address into the image editing box that pops up when you push the tree icon.  

Maybe there is one thing missing.. you have to press "preview" once the picture URL is loaded, in order for it to get into the post.  Might that be the missing step?  

By the way, I did a google search, and a while ago there was a big problem with .jpg files (those containing images), carrying virus payloads.  Sure, technology has come a long way since then, but That's the reason this "hoop to jump through"  happened, so long ago.

To post photos:

1. First upload your desired photo to a hosting site.  I use Imgur.  Others here use Postimage.

2. When you reply to or start a thread and you want to post a photo, type in your comment, then move your cursor to where you want the photo to appear in your post.

3. Click on the Tree icon in the first row above the window where you put your text (6th icon from the left).

4. This will open a pop-up window titled "Image Properties."

5. In this pop-up window, you will see a blank space in the upper right with a pre-filled "http://" in it.

6. The site where your image is stored will display several types of links that you can copy and use.  Copy the "Direct Link" link.

7. Paste this copied link in the blank space mentioned in #4 above.

8.  If you have a double http:// delete one of them.

9. Just to the right of the blank space where you copied the photo link, click on the rectangular button labeled "Preview"

10. This will cause a preview of your image to open.  It will look YUUUUGE, but that's OK.  It will look normal sized in your post.

11.  At the bottom right of the "Image Properties" pop-up, you will see a rectangular button labeled "OK"

12.  Click on that button and your picture will be visible in your post.


This all sounds more tedious than it is, so give it a try and don't get discouraged.

Thank you for that Courtenay. Because you went to all that trouble to put a VERY detailed recipe for posting on here, I'm going to give it a wirl again. Embarrassed
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Good luck, Stuart.  Fingers crossed for your success.  Posting pics can be frustrating, but if you can get it done 2-3 times, it is not so hard.
