Pictures

I have seen several great posts with images cut and pasted into them; my question is how do you do it? I can attach images but not paste them directly into the message.

Can someone post an 'idiots guide' to displaying pictures in posts.

Thanks.

Once the file has been uploaded to TFL, right click the link and click on properties. The address or URL will be at the bottom. Copy that to your clipboard. Then place the cursor in your post where you want the top left corner of the picture to be and click the image button in the posting tools. [IMG] and [/IMG] will show up in your post. Paste the address between them, making sure there are no spaces, and hit submit reply. Your picture will then show up.

The alternative is if you have your own server/host (some ISP's supply these). In which case you upload your image to your host, then use that as the URL within the IMG tags.
