I tried using mountain/sun icon but didn't work either. I think the problem lies with the hosting url layout.
I tried right click on image and selected "copy image" & inserting between the two {img} brackets. But nothing. I'll try "copy image location"
Hmmm this may have worked. Doesn't show pic now but maybe after I submit?
OK on edit; It doesn't show pic in preview mode but after I clicked submit , it did. Now to see what size works better.1st pic is approx 640x480pix
2nd is approx 960x720pix
hmm on edit: the pics look the same? The motorcycle in above post looks large? Do I need to make sure image is within a certain range before right clicking and pasting between {img} brackets?
This is where I was imaging from http://www.image-share.com/index.php?m=upload

I'm using the the code from that image-share service.
The first forum link is this for me [ URL=http://www.image-share.com/ijpg-4087-79.html][ IMG]http://www.image-share.com/upload/4087/79.jpg[ / IMG][ / URL] (some spaces added so that it doesn't replace it right away).
If you just use that in your text, you get a picture with a link to their page. Here:
Image
You can also copy the image part out of that - it begins with [ IMG] and ends with [/ IMG] (spaces added again).
In my example [ IMG]http://www.image-share.com/upload/4087/79.jpg[/ IMG].
Then you get the image alone w/o the link to their page. Here:
Image
What the mountain/sun icon does - it adds just the IMG tags in case you only have link to the picture, but no code. You can also just type it in if you know the right way. Forum will process that automatically from the text.
[ img][/ img](again with additional spaces)

Hope that helps :cheers:

OK 1st pic is using link(world/chain), & I opened pic 1st & then right clicked over pic, selected "copy image location".
The 2nd pic is using mountain/sun icon, & right clicking the same as above. For comparison.

Ok I see it posted the pic, using (mountain/sun) icon and the (world/chain) icon shows the url address only & not the pic. Thank you everyone, I hope I can remember this stuff. Nobody, that tunnel pic, you shot? Too cool!
One last question, don't some forums, insist on certain size perimeters? I thought I tried posting a long time ago somewhere and a box popped up stating something like, "file is too large" ??

This shouldn't care about the size since pics are being stored somewhere else.

And yes, the tunnel shot is mine. Guess what? It's in DC about 4 miles from the White house ;)
