    You need to upload it somewhere, such as photobucket.com or postimange.org

    Then you link to it using the tags (remove *s)

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]If you hover your mouse pointer over the image you want to show, right click over it and you'll see either "Properties" in Internet Explorer or "Copy Image Location" in FireFox.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]If "Properties" in Internet Explorer, you'll need to highlight the image Address or URL completely and copy it by right clicking over it once it's all been highlighted. FireFox is easier, as you only need to click on "Copy Image Location".[/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Paste the copied URL in to the field which states "Link To Image File" or for forum replies and posts click this http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/editor/insertimage.gif to paste the URL in.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]If you have an image on your computer you want to use, try [/SIZE][/FONT]][font=arial][size=2]http//ww…NT][FONT=Arial][SIZE=2] or [/SIZE][/FONT]][font=arial][size=2]http//ww…NT][FONT=Arial][SIZE=2] to upload and host them on.[/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Browse your desktop for the image you want to upload to one of those sites, then click "Upload". Once that's completed, a URL or web address will automatically be created for you to copy and paste in the forum as above.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    Depends on if the site is a reputable one or not! If its in anyway dubious the results can be catastrophic!!!

    Actually that's a good point. If you save the image to your desktop first, then check it before uploading it to one of the image hosting sites it should be okay, unless there's a copyright issue.

    Make sure it's set to 'private' or your whole album will be viewable.
