1. I usually put it up at

Photobucket and then link the URL to the photo.

If the picture is on a website you can right click then "copy image URL" then paste in your post. Hit preview to make sure it worked.

2. Just put the URL for the pic in the main body of the post and hit preview and see if it shows up.

Some do, some don't depending on if the pic has a guard against hotlinking.

4. Use a free photo-server (just google them) & copy the direct photo-link - or - if it's a photo out

there on the internet somewhere, right click on it and select "Copy Image Location" (or URL or whatever your system calls it) and then paste that link into your post here.

I don't think you have to be a star member, but it's been so long since I was anything else, that I could be wrong.

8. What others said

And you don't need to be a Star member. I was doing it before I became a Star.
