How does one Embed Pictures in a Post?

    I'm exposing my internet ignorance I'm sure, but after seeing the great pics of Integral's Thanksgiving pies embedded in his thread I was wondering how he achieved that.

    Have you noticed the Manage Attachments button below the box in which you type your posts? It is pretty self-explanatory. The only problem I have had was my images were too big. The size limit is something like 400 x 400 pixels.

    I don't think that's what he means. I think he's talking about the [ img ] tags. You can wrap these around links to photos and they will imbed in the body of your post, but you can only do this in General Discussion. The feature is turned off in every other forum. I suggest quoting any thread that has pictures in it to see examples of how this is done. Here's an example: [ img ]http://www.mtv.com/shared/media/news/images/l/Lohan_Lindsay/sq-lohan-drama-intv-mtv.jpg[ /img ]. If posted in General Discussion, this would show up as a picture of Lindsay Lohan in the post. (Remove the spaces in the tags, of course.)

    Okay, I guess 'embed' was the key word. :blushing:

    I placed the pics on my comcast web space then as Loseyouname said placed a link inside [_img_] tags. When I did that there was a button, along with the hyperlink and quote buttons which gave me the tags. I don't see it now.~^

    Let me try it with this pic.

    Hummm... doesn't seem to work now!
