    Hi,
    I tried posting a few photos on a thread, and i used the "insert image" icon and inserted the image url, but when i posted my post, the photos wouldn't show up.
    I was just wondering how everyone else uploads photos, am I doing something wrong??

      Do the images already exist on the web? They have to be uploaded somewhere either on TSR (attachments) or some external website. Then you get the image location URL and paste it into the dialog box that pops up when you click the icon.

      Or alternatively, the code: [IMG]image location URL here[/IMG]

      If the image location is okay, it could be one of the 'approve by moderator before post appears' measures.

      Yes, the images already exist on the web

          Possibly because of a massive image URL that doesn't directly link to the image itself?

          Yeah, you're best of right clicking the image itself on that page and then copying the image URL or clicking "View full image size" on the right hand side. Make sure it ends in .jpg
