If you want to insert an image inline in the post somewhere, the image needs to be on the internet allready somewhere, either from an image hosting site or uploaded here as an attachment first. If you upload it here as an attachment, you can then view your post, view your attached image, right click on your image and click "copy image location". You now have the image's URL.
Insert your image like so:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://image-url[/img]
You can also resize your image:
Code: [Select]
[img width=300]http://image-url[/img]you can use any width, numbers are in pixels.


Below is the thumbnail of the original attachment that was uploaded.
