Oh crap... Looks like some images went missing. 1 2 3 4 5 6 are supposed to be images. I'll recreate the post the missing images in a moment.

I replaced the missing pics, I'll need to clean them up later on but they'll do for now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It helps if you keep an eye on the send/receive lights on your modem so you can tell when it starts and finishes uploading.

This is one of these processes that’s easy once you’ve got familiar with it but is totally maddening until you do and like anything on a computer, near enough is not good enough. A lot of procedures assume you have enough knowledge to fill in the small steps and this is what can catch you out. It certainly did with me so here’s my extended version.

1
How to post an image in a topic. (outdated) Step_210

2
How to post an image in a topic. (outdated) Step_310

This takes you to your own files  to select your photo for posting
3
How to post an image in a topic. (outdated) Step_410

double click left mouse on the image you want and it's selected as shown in step 4
4
How to post an image in a topic. (outdated) Step_510

Select the size as shown in step four and as shown click on "Host it".
Now this is where I got caught for a couple of reasons.
1. My camera if set on large format can take photos out to A3 and A2 poster size. This was far too large a file for my internet provider and everything timed out at this stage. By resizing the photo to document size (1024 x 768) before trying to post fixed this problem. If you want to keep the original size just make a copy and resize it for posting.
2. The second thing that caught me here is that after clicking "Host it" there can be a considerable delay before step 5 window appears, for me anyway. Don't get impatient (like I did) and start clicking away (like I did) or you'll just end up going round in circles (like I did)  
Once the window shown below in step 5 appears click on the small box to the left of the word image and it will turn blue as shown.
5
How to post an image in a topic. (outdated) Step_610

Now while holding the Ctrl (Control) button down press the C button. This has readied the image for copying to the forum page.
Now click on the "Host an image" icon up in the tool bar, the one that started this whole process. Don't click on the "Host it" shown in the step 5 window. If you've clicked the right one the step 5 window will disappear (don't panic as I did, the process is still running, we've just got the window out of the way and you should be looking at the view shown in step 6

6
How to post an image in a topic. (outdated) Step_710

Now click on the page where you want the image to go and then hold down Ctrl and push V. This has copied, or pasted as it is known, the image to the page.
If you want to copy another image click on the "Host an image" icon up in the tool bar again and the hosting window will reappear. Now click on the "Host it" button and it will take you back to step 2 to repeat the process.
After you have finished loading images you can click on "Send" to post your images or "Preview" if you want to check your photos are correct before posting. If you are happy with the photos remember to scroll back down to the "Send" button to finish the post.  


After hitting save, you should see your image.

You should also put this little statement.

Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).

Dunno all about that oldguy

all the photos in my posts are from a .jpg file on my desktop or in a file on my local computer

I use the "Host and Image" icon above in the tool bar instead of the "insert image" icon

I pay for web-based hosting @ pbase.com .... its alittle more complex than say Flickr, but the process is still the same.

Click "Insert Image" and past the address of the photo.  

EX: http://www.pbase.com/lakebiker/image/161727493/medium.jpg

I can change the size of the displayed image by changing 'medium' to 'large' .... or 'medium' to 'small'

It looks like this .... which is the default 'medium' size.

Here is 'large' ...

Like Fred said, I just use "Host an Image" and choose a picture file from my computer. Don't know anything about using a "web server". I choose the image, paste it in and Bingo (Aussie for Voila)
