    You can add images to your posts by clicking on the Image icon in the toolbar above the editing textarea field (it’s 3 icons to the right of the YouTube icon).

    When you click on the Image icon an Image URL field will be displayed. You then have a choice of entering an existing url or uploading an image from your computer.

    If your photos are already hosted on another website just paste the url into the Image URL field and click Apply Image. The automatically generated html will be inserted into your topic or reply.

    There’s a little hiccup with uploading photos directly from your computer right now. I’ll update this post as soon as we get that straightened out.

    You can now attach images and other files to your forum topics and reply directly from your computer. Use the Attachments field/button below to attach up to 4 files per topic or reply.

    I’m attaching a sample image file to this reply. If you click on the thumbnail you’ll see the full size image.

    Don’t forget to resize your images before attaching them.

    If you want to add an in-line image from another web site (that you have a right to use)
    you can do it by adding a tag like the following in-line with your post text:

    <img src=”https://blah-blah-blah.jpg”&gt;

    Where the blah-blah-blah is replaced with the actual location of your image. You can usually get this by right clicking on an image in a web site like your own photobucket and selecting “Copy Image URL”. Paste that between the quotes in the tag.

    There is an example of this img tag in the little blurb below your posting window. All those extra tags like alt=”” and width=”” are optional and let you fine tune what your image looks like.

    Here is a reference to the full description of the tag:

    Using HTML Images

    Here, for example, is an image from the University of Alberta’s web site in line with this topic.

    This image does not actually reside on the web site. So if the University of Alberta deletes it, it will go missing from this post.
