Do you have a 'photobucket' (or similar) picture hosting account? That's your first move.

It will probably work something like this then?

EDIT again - scrap previous, Picasa apparently is limited sharing, which is probably why it doesn't work so well ...

Picasa will let you share if you have a google+ account, which, frankly, I think is shite.
Photobucket will be your best option rutter. They even list the img code for each photo to want to post.

Forget Photobucket. It's become a bloated, useless thing. Try http://imgur.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; instead. Upload a pic, grab the code and paste it into the forum. Simple. You can create an account if you want to have a library of pics, but you don't actually have to sign up to anything.

I use Flickr and it does the same. Took me an embarrassingly long time to find the 'share' button the first time, but easy once you know where to go to grab the img code.

Damn right! The new version is slow, over complicated and you can never find any of your uploads. None of it seems to make any sense whatsoever so now it's next to bloody useless - pity because it used to be really good. I think I'll give this 'imgur' thing a go - thanks for that Ian.
