FIRST: You have to get an off-site host for your images. There are sites specifically designed for this, like www.Photobucket.com where you can sign up for an account - many regular host sites like www.Angelfire.com (Hosts meant specifically for personal websites) will NOT allow image-linking, so be wary of them.

SECOND: Once you have uploaded an image to a host-server, you need the HTTP address to link it. You can link to images using this code, where you substitute your actual host's address and image file name for the stand-in address and file name:

Code: Select all

[noparse][IMG]http://www.your-host-address-here.com/your-image-file[/IMG][/noparse]

Thank you for making one of these things. Now I have a place to redirect these newboys.

Also, you can use the [noparse][noparse][/noparse] tags, if you actually want to use the [img] tag in your example.

Thanks, I always forget about those ones. You'd think the code tags would have the same effect, but of course not.

This needs a small update, photo bucket is charging 400$ a year. Get Imgur instead.
