I'm having problems posting pictures on the new forum.. or am I just being a muppet. is it the same process as before.. I insert the url of where the picture is posted and highligh it and click the IMG button?

is this correct?

the attach upload is the easier way i think, but would affect the site bandwidth

i haven't tried the img tags yet, not sure if i'll be able to get them to work:

i can see it, can everyone else? i did it as scotty suggested, which is odd as i was expecting to get the same result he did.

[ img ]the path for the image[ /img ]

but without the extra spaces.

if it helps, i took the path for the image from the right-click/properties, and then made sure i copied the whole path (it was over 3 or 4 lines on my screen).
