How does one go about posting images? (jpeg, gif, etc)

I seem to be the only one on FR that has absolutely no idea how to post photos and jpegs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(seriously joking or jokingly serious, you decide)
Has this one already been ... posted?

(oh, did I say that out loud?)
Okay. The image MUST be hosted on the web. It CANNOT be accessed from a file folder on your computer.
That said, look at this example:
That will appear on the post like this:
Are you having trouble figuring out the URL (address) of the image you want to post? Just right-click on the image and select "properties". Its URL will come up. Copy and paste that. Put <img src=" in front (no spaces). After the URL type ">
This should work unless you forget a character or misspell a URL.

You can also add height and width statements to size your pic.
< img height="300" width="300" src="" >
300 X 300 is usually a good size for overly large pics.

The other thing you have to remember is that if it's your picture, you have to upload it to your web site or a free hosting web site before you can reference it. Do a search for other threads with "Bootcamp" in the title for other html tips.
