Here are two ways to insert a photo into your forum post:
Copy the BB Code
To the right of each photo, you'll see various code which is intended to be copied and pasted to show the photo elsewhere. Copy the "BB Code," which is short for "bulletin board code" from the days forums were called bulletin boards:
You can paste that code into your post in the forum, and the photo will appear there. In fact, this should work for all photo-sharing websites, such as Flickr and PhotoBucket as well! Pretty easy.
Right Click, Copy Image Location
Go to the gallery and the photo you want to place in the gallery (not the thumbnail of the image, but the actual image itself).
Right click on the photo, and left click "copy image location."
This will store the URL (Internet address) of the image on your computer's clipboard. Return to the forum, and click on the image button at the top:
A small window will open that asks you to enter the URL of the photo. It has a default setting of "http://" which is a reminder to put that at the beginning of the path to the photo (that is, if you want to enter it manually):
Since the URL is already stored when you saved the image location, you can either highlight the entire "http://" and replace it when you paste the URL, or you can just delete it and then paste the photo's URL. Right click into the text field of the small window, and click "paste." The path to the image should appear. Click "OK." The image should appear when you post your topic.
The only problems you might have may occur if:
You are entering the address manually. In that case, the URL is probably incorrect, or perhaps you didn't upload the photo.
You copied the image location and are pasting it into the URL box, but didn't delete the default "http://" in the URL field. In that case the photo is probably not showing because the address has the "http:// portion of the address appearing twice, like so: "http://http://www.yo...yourphoto.jpg."
