A lot of newcomers and former-lurkers are having trouble posting images, so I thought I'd do a quick guide on how to embed a pic into your post.

First, you'll need to pinpoint the source of the image, or upload it from your computer.

There are a number of free image hosting services, but if you need one that's quick and easy, try imgur.com.  

Once there you can upload a photo from your computer.  When it finishes, or when you locate the picture online that you'd like to post, right click on the image and select "copy image URL":



Next you'll need to insert the image into your post.  In order to do that, you first need to make sure you've got the advanced reply settings available.  You can't use these features when using the "quick reply" box at the bottom of the thread, so you first need to click on "full reply editor":



Now you'll be able to click "insert image" (the little tree icon):



And you'll get a box that looks like this:



The most important part here is that you delete the "http://" that automatically pops up in the Image URL box.  You've already got that from copying the image URL, and having "http://" in there twice will mess everything up.  So delete that, and then paste (ctrl+v) the image URL into the box.



Click preview to see that it grabbed the correct image, then hit "OK" and the image will appear in your new post!  Voila!


Now everyone can see those guns.

Hopefully this was helpful.

In the top right corner if you click "computer" it'll let you browse your computer for the pic you want to upload, the rest of the instructions should follow after it finishes uploading.
