What computer system, what internet system?

I use a IBM type pc, windows 7 and Firefox.

How I do photos is to right click on the image, select "copy image location". Then using the "insert image" icon above the area you type your message (looks like a yellow square with sum & mountain) I paste the copied location in the window that the icon opens up. Click OK and the magic should take care of itself.

Your image must be already posted somewhere on the internet first -----as I understand things.

This works for borrowing images also, here is the VAF logo for instance.

Me too. This is how I do it. Choose the image from an album you want to link to, then right click on photo, choose Copy Image Location. Then follow DR's embeddding pics into post. Paste/insert url image location address and that's it.
