The first thing you need to do is to get the Address/URL of your image. For instance here is an image from the ORS banners.
Right click on it click "Properties" at the bottom of the little menu.
You will see Address [ URL ]. You need to highlight this and then hit CTRL and C at the same time (that's copying it to the clipboard).
Then on your post message window, in the "Add Tags" box, there are two little grey menu bars. The bottom one has a number of icons on it. The 4th icon is the insert image icon (). Click it. This text will come up (minus the spaces)
[ img ][ /img ]
Click in between the two ][ brackets and paste (CTRL V) your image address or URL.
Be considerate of bandwidth though. If you're taking an image from another site, make sure it's a flickr or photobucket site, and that you're not taxing someone's server without their permission. I have no problem with anyone using the bandwidth for our ORS banners though. You're welcome to them.
Please keep these thoughts in mind as you post images:
Try not to post huge pictures that will stretch the forum
Posting a lot of pictures in a thread may make it slow to load.
Borrowing tons of pictures from random sites may slow their sites down.
