Join the club :lol:

You need to create an account on an image hosting site (a free one preferably). When you upload your pics from your computer to the image host there will be something to click on that lets you copy the image direct link url. That should end in "jpg" for this forum I think.

Once you have copied that url you need to click on the insert image icon in the task bar when you are creating a post here. Paste the copied url for the image you want to post and paste it between the [img][img] tags that appear. Preview your post before submitting just to make sure the picture shows.

As far as which free image hosting site is concerned, I have no idea. I use imgur.com. It's good on windowz but very annoying on android but that could just be me being a numpty.

HTH

Imgur on Android isn't too diffocult - I can manage it.

Mark them as 'Hidden' rather than 'Public'.
