How to add graphics to a post?

How to add graphics to a post?

When you click on the insert image icon it asks for a URL. I can't quite get the gist of it. If I want to add a picture from my computer, i.e. a christmas graphic or something, where does it have to be in the first place? I've done a bit of HTML coding and I know that you have to upload images to a file manager to get them to show up in a document but I can't seem to get my head round this one. Am I just being dense - lol?

I think you can only link an image from your computer in the photo forum Critique, in all other forums it has to be stored on a website. A lot of people
use photobucket to store the images they wish to upload here.

*I am a complete numpty when it comes to computers so this info could be completely incorrrect*

Nope.

If you're linking to a photo on your PC, the ONLY way people can see the photo is if they have access to your PC. Basically ANY photo that you want to display on this site MUST be stored on a web server. So either use Photobucket, or run your own web server...!

Hmmmm - well I think my messages will be without graphics then - lol, cos I haven't got Photobucket and "run your own web server ...." ???? That's like a foreign language to me Blush

Thanks to everyone for the help though - I must be just a thicko Smile
