    You can insert the image as an attachment to the post. Click on the paper clip above the text box when you are typing the post. The only problem with this is that you'll have to wait for a mentor to approve the image before anyone can see it.

    Also, if your questions are homework type questions, please post them in the appropriate homework help section:

    hmmm

    would it be possible to some how post the pictures directly in with the question like on a word document notr as an attachment? the questions i have are kind of confusing and the pictures make them so much clearer!

    Your best bet is to put them in as an attachment or link to them if you have a website. I don't know of any other way to do it. The attachment is the only way I know of to put an actual image in a post. It works, it just won't be instantaneous.

    I personally put them on a photobucket account. There is a bar under the picture in your galery that you press, and it automatically copies the code for the link to the picture on a forum. It will show up on its own not as a link.

    :rofl: I like the Santa hat on your avatar G01.

    This feature is disabled in the physics section of the forum. In fact, I think the only forums that the img codes will work are the GD and HW forums (I'm guessing with the latter).

    So doing what you suggested won't work here.

    Attachments, pictures or otherwise, have to be approved before we can see them. But in some posts I have noticed, (I may be mistaken), that some thumbnails are given which show up immediately. (Again, it's possible that I've viewed them after the approval.)

    Is this true, about thumbnails I mean?

    There are two different ways in the homework forums. Either as attachments which need to be approved, or from a photobucket or imageshack (or any other web picture hosting) you can use [ img] tags.
