        Exactly. What am I doing wrong? Try to link to my IP provider storage, the photo is there, I think I'm missing step... obviously!

          Okay, the way I do it is to save the photo (only the photo, not the link) to my computer. Then go to a photo hosting service. I use PhotoBucket. Upload the photo to your hosting account. Once uploaded the hosting service will give you options, like "email, direct link, URL, etc.... I use the link that's provided called "direct link." Then paste that link into the post you're making and presto the photo is embedded into the post.

              Sometimes you need to put image code in front and behind the link. The code in front is [IMG] and behind is [/IMG].

              It can be tricky.

                If the "direct link" is not working for you, then try the one that's labeled "IMG."

                  Thanks guys, will get there.... it is a bit tricky. They say you have to be 10% smarter than what you are working on. Clearly the percentages are stacked against me....!

                      Still not sure why it's working but I'll take it. And the Russian sniper is the real deal. She's not from a modern image.....

                        That Russian sniper sure was a doll. Any info as to who she was....or maybe still is (if still living)?

                          I always use the IMG option.

                            So a "control C--control V" option won't work here from photobucket? That's how I do it everywhere else.
