You can't just do a paste. The image file has to be stored on a server/computer that is reachable via the web. Someone else posted instructions about how to get an image uploaded to a free site so that you can "point to" it here. Try using the Search function to track down that information.

DD - thank you. i have the information and understand about the web based services. how then though does one insert it into the body of the post message with your forum functionality - just using an URL? or....

Just use the Img BB-code button (see above the composition window). For example, for the image file http://www.laxpower.com/graphics/04d1w.jpg you would enter
Code: Select all
[img]http://www.laxpower.com/graphics/04d1w.jpg[/img]

to produce this
