S! all, Zardo, to post a photo/image in your post, do the following:

1) Your photo/image must be accessible from the internet; in other words, anyone from the internet should be able to see the photo you want to post from the location where the image is stored. For most persons, pictures on their computer are not accessible to the internet because of firewalls/sharing permissions on their computer, etc. So usually you have to upload your photos to a public photo hosting website, such as photobucket which is free (there are other free photo hosting websites as well).

2) You need the url address of the photo on the public photo hosting website of your photo/image that you want to show in your post. For example, the url of the photo might be something like:
http:// photobucket.com/zardo/myimage.jpg

3) When you make your new post, click on the "Img" button just above where your are writing your new post and it will insert the following code into your post [img ] [/img ] (note: I put a space between the "g" and the "]" so you can see the code, otherwise the code wouldn't be visible; do NOT put a space when you go to post a image).

4) Put the url address of your photo in between the [img ] [/img ] tags; for example it would look something like: [img ]http://photobucket.com/zardo/myimage.jpg[/img ] (NOTE: do NOT put a space between the "g" and the "]" I did so here so you can see the code to give you an idea of what it looks like to post your image.

5) Click on "Preview" button below where you are typing in your post message and you should see a preview of your post with the image showing. If your image does not show in the Preview, then make sure you have the correct url address of the image and that the image tag address, such as [img ]http://photobucket.com/zardo/myimage.jpg[/img ], in your post has no spaces in it.

6) Once you can see you image in the Preview, then just hit the "Submit" button to post your message along with your photo/image.

Hope this helps!
