How to include an image?

    I feel stupid, but I can't find the "help" to use the forum. What I'm looking-for is what to do to include an image in a post.

    there is https://www.physicsforums.com/Nexus/editor/insertimage.gif [Broken] button when you post.

    or, you can type this thing:

    [IMG]https://www.physicsforums.com/Prime/theme/Prime_Logo.gif[/[b]IMG[/b]] [Broken]

    and it turns into:

    I believe that images are only enabled in this and the General Discussion Forum. You can tell by looking at the bottom left corner of the page when making a new post. There is a box that indicates if images are enabled - On or Off. If they aren't, only the link will appear.

    You can also attach images by using the "manage attachments" button when making a new post [not quick replies].

    Thanks! Some explanations really need an image.
    It is the "manage attachments" button what I needed.

    Would it be desirable to allow IMG tags in other forums? There are occasions where images/diagrams could be helpful in an explanation; it is rather cumbersome to provide a web link at the bottom of your post to the image and attachments tend to take a while to be approved.
