Code:
[img]http://image_url[/img]


Hit the Img button once, enter the address to the pic you want, hit Img button.  Or just paste the image address, highlight it, then hit the Img button.

You need to make sure you select the image address. It should look something like this: http://www.gamingtrend.com/forums/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Follow these steps to practice:
copy that address
reply to this thread
paste
highlight address
hit the Img button
preview
submit

There you go!

It's similar to quoting someone, except the tag inside the brackets is IMG instead of QUOTE.

So, if you wanted to post a picture, you would type .  There should not be any spaces at all.

Like this:

Link, possibly NSFW

Sorry, had to make up for the lack of a Sunday Skin.  slywink

EDIT:  On second thought, I'd better make that a link since this topic isn't labeled NSFW

I think what he's asking is how he simply posts images to the site, not realizing that most of all images ever shown in the actual threads are hosted externally.

You'll need to either upload the picture in question to your the webspace that most ISPs provide for free (and usually named off of your e-mail accounts), or search for an external solution that'll provide you a link you can just use with the Img button and the directions provided already.

I just don't know of any external sites offhand to provide you.
