Posting pics?

I haven't been able to find the info, so sorry for asking this, but how do I add pictures when posting in threads? I have only ever spent some time in another unrelated forum, and in that one I just upload any pic into an album that I can draw from anytime. So how is it done on this forum?

You see, that's my problem, I don't know where the image is supposed to come from. It asks for a URL. I honestly am not sure exactly what that is. I have managed to get by on the internet so far by blind luck, and playful ignorance. To me a link represents an entire webpage. How does it become just a small picture?

Re: Posting pics?

I use firefox, so wherever I see an image that I want to insert here, just right-click and click Copy Image Location. Search google about your browser.

What he said, so for example I'm on the website http://thenbamemes.tumblr.com/

When I find the picture I want, I right click and select "copy image url", then come back on Wrestling Forum and use [img]insertimagelink[/img] *Make sure you use square brackets and the forward slash.

This is the url of the image: http://25.media.tumblr.com/21f263ce9...5ngxo1_500.jpg

Then I substitute that link above for insertimagelink.

The final result should be this:

Re: Posting pics?

Another way around it, if "copy image location" is confusing:

When you see a pic on any webpage, right click on the picture, and usually there's the option saying "Open image in new tab". This should open a new tab that ONLY has that image on it. If you copy the URL of that page, it'll just be the image.

I think I finally figured it out!

Thanks for the help. I hate IE.
