I want to post a picture on a thread. But I'm not sure how. It's any picture in general, not just one from my PS3.
It says I need the URL for my picture. Does it even have a URL if it's coming from my desktop?

Thanks

No, if you have it locally (in other words, on your computer) then it won't have a URL.

A URL is simply a web link, so in other words your picture needs to be uploaded somewhere and be "hosted".

The very best and easiest way to do this is to sign up for a free Photobucket (http://photobucket.com/) account. It's a fantastic service, 100% free, and you can upload a lot... A LOT of pictures - anything you want. It will provide you links you can use for posting your pictures here. (Using the [IMG] tag link option is easiest.)

It's a pretty easy process, but if you've never done it before it can be a little confusing. If you have any questions just ask! :hatsack:
