How to Embed Pictures

There are two main ways to embed pictures onto the forum. The first is to utilize the "Insert Image" feature when posting. The other way to accomplish this is to use an image hosting website. (tinypic, photobucket, imageshack, etc...)

Example 1 - Embeding a picture using the "Insert Image" Feature:

To embed a picture, you will want to first find the picture that you wish to use. This picture can be from anywhere on the web.

Say I want to use this Vito Belfort picture.

I would click the "Insert Image" button as shown below.

Once you click this button, a box will appear asking for the URL as the picture. I would simply type in the URL and then hit "Ok" as shown below.

Then once you submit your post, the picture should appear.

Example 2 - How to embed a picture utilizing an image hosting website:

To accomplish this, you would first want to find the picture that you want, and save it somewhere onto your home computer. I have chosen to use the same picture from before.

I will then go to an image hosting website. (tinypic, photobucket, imageshack, etc...) For this, I will use tinypic.

I will go to and then browse for the photo on my computer and upload it to Once the picture has uploaded, I will get a screen that has various codes to embed the picture.

The code that you will want to copy is the IMG (Forum/Message board) code.

Once you have the code copied, simply paste it into your post and then once you submit it, your picture should appear.

If you have any other questions or anything to add, feel free to PM me or post in this thread.
