You have to store the image somewhere online, then link to it in your post:

<img> your link here </img>

Unfortunately the instructions given on the first page are incomplete and need updating.

Even those instructions above are unclear. Let's try this example:

<img>http://yourwebservername/yourphoto.jpg</img>

But replace < with the [ character and replace > with the ] character.

Ah yes, I forgot to mention swapping the brackets in. Thanks.

But to be even more clear, your link may differ from syber's example.

Photobucket (for example) usually gives you all the code you need for putting your image in your post, brackets and all.  Just copy the link code for "forums" and paste into your post as is.

What do we need to do to get the admin instructions updated?

I'm relatively new to the forum myself,  and it was somewhat confusing,  but I managed to figure it out.
