    You've already accomplished the most 'difficult' part. By finding a picture-hosting site like Flickr, Imgur, or Photobucket. If you look at the strip in the posting dialogue box; you'll see a "black mountain icon with a moon". At the picture hosting-site, right-click with your mouse on the pic [the one you want to use] use it's url address (direct link). Open an extra tab on the computer, as it makes this an easier process, when moving from site-to-site. Left-click on the icon above, and paste in the addy by right-clicking first, and a drop-down menu will appear and hit "paste". Then hit the 'insert button'. That's it. Hope this helps out.

    Thanks a lot Elmiro
    Flickr makes a bit complicated to do the simple things you describe

    Hmm..looks like it only leaves that instead of actual picture...
    Perhaps that Flckr URL is not the proper direct link to the image and than it stays like [IMG] ?
