Just right click the image, and if in Firefox, click "copy image url" or if in Internet explorer, click properties, highlight and copy the image URL... You don't actually have to save in on your PC...

Actually, I have the imageshack toolbar, so I can just right click any image, and select "upload image to imageshack"... then paste in forums

I know you went on to say that you use Imageshack but direct linking back to pages is only really advisable on SAFE 'Product' websites (Woolies, Hmv, etc) to avoid the pic turning into a banner or image saying "This image was taken from such & such site", "X does not allow hotlinking" or worse still images replaced with ones slightly 'dodgier' than the funny ones you've originally posted....members have been caught out by this last option before now.....

Yeah, that's why I always use imageshack for any images in the replies. However, when posting a deal post, as in the above screenshots, it's ok to grab the actual image URl, as HUKD uploads it to their server in that case

awesome. have saved this page to my favourites!
