You have to host it on a site like Flickr or Photobucket. Then you click the IMG button above and insert the link between the bracketed entries.

There are a couple other options. That might be concidered.
While you are typing you can scroll down and select the upload attachment. This will display an Icon to the readers which they can download the image and basically see it in another page.

If you have your own web space You can upload your image to your own webspace. Free webspace is sometimes available from your provider, There is also free space available on the net via such services such as blogger.com


My prefered method these days is to usedropbox. Thias is mostly a service that allows one to share data between common computers. It stores the data on all the computers on the account as well as on line. It allows me to securely keep data images and photos on my work and home computers all toger and synced. One of the options though is to store stuff in the public folder. Anything stored in the public folder is available to others who have the the link url. All that needs to be done is to click the URL button and modify the code to look like:

Code: Select all

+1 for dropbox. Wonderful program that is completely free.

You may use this link to signup for the service and receive an additional 250 megs for free (as will I since it's my referral link): https://www.getdropbox.com/referrals/NTE3MDQwNjk
