For a personal image, the quick way is to start an account with something like Photobucket other similar photo site

Upload the picture to the site, and then right click, and "save image location"

(This will also work with most images on t'internet)

Come back here and click on the "Img" tab above and paste the link between the two square bracketed entries that appear

I have altered this one to round brackest so you can see how it works


...and the square brackets reinstalled:

Instructions here: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=59576&p=503629&hilit=upload+photo#p503629

I don't know why this isn't in the FAQs - it comes up regularly :? .

Edit: Cunobelin beat me to it. However if you don't have a hosting account you can also upload directly from your computer as an attachment - see my link.
