    I don't see a guide for this one and it isn't perfectly straightforward so here's how I'm doing it. This will assume you've created a Picasa account and already uploaded photos from your computer/mobile (that's the easy part).

    -When viewing a photo on their web service (picasaweb.google.com), you are given a tool menu on the right hand side of the screen. At the bottom is an option that says "Link to this Photo". Click it.

    -Now if you're attempting to add the photo directly into a forum post YOU CANNOT USE THE LINK AND EMBED IMAGE addresses yet. This is what gave me problems.

    -You need to click the box that says "Image only (no link)" and select a size from the dropdown menu. Medium 640x640 seems to work pretty well for me on this forum.

    -Now you can use the "Embed Image" URL address directly above the dropdown menu. Copy it.

    -In your post, click the little icon that looks like a tree and paste the "Embed Image" address into the "Enter Image URL" line. Click Insert.

    Item of note: Picasa is very convenient for syncing to and uploading from Android mobiles BUT you can't get the image link from a mobile (from what I can determine).

    Hope this helps some folks out!

    For Android you need to use the BBcode.

    @brokedave Appears your attempt to post image was unsuccessful. You may have solved, but just in case you need a nudge in the right direction, here's at least one way to do it:
    • Right-click the URL in your #10 post above. Select COPY LINK LOCATION.
    • In format bar above post/reply message pane, click INSERT/EDIT IMAGE icon (4th from right on my screen). This step OK at any point in your typed post/reply.
    • In the box, paste the image URL selected step one.
    • Click INSERT button. Image should display.
