How were you able to imbed the graphic in your comments, Ghislain? That was impressive.

Illen it was only an image I pinched from another site.

I look on google images for a pic that suits, right click the image
and choose "properties" this shows the web address of the image.
Copy the web address then click the "insert image" icon http://forum.alchemyforums.com/images/editor/insertimage.pngon the post
editor and paste the copied address into it. as I just did with the
Icon.

or type the following:

web address

If you have your own web space you can create your own images and
upload them to there where they will have a web address and you can
follow the same process.

I think a lot of people use "photo bucket" its the same thing.

Thanks Ghislain, that's much more practical than opening a "photo bucket" utility.

I'll give it a try with a picture of Maslow.

[Added later - It works!]

The reason Photobucket (and such sites) are better is because image URLs are taken down, are changed and sometimes if they don't like that you have used their image taken down for that reason leaving an ugly blue question mark.

So if you want your posts to look slick for all eternity use Photobucket, otherwise you are taking a risk.

Just so you know.
