As you know, uploading a picture directly from your "Pictures" folder into the picture maker will result in this:

40572

Instead of this:

http://i45.tinypic.com/23lkz7t.jpg

I will show you how to insert your pictures so they look like the second one.

1. Save the picture you want to upload. (I'm using the "I See What You Did There" face.)
2. Go to http://www.tinypic.com/.
3. Ensure that you click "Image" under "File Type", then click "Choose File" to choose your file, then click "UPLOAD NOW".
4. Enter the letters you see in the small window under the text "Enter the following:" into the "Your answer" text box, then click "UPLOAD NOW" to upload it.
5. Copy the text under the "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" text, and paste it onto your post.

That's it! If you followed the steps to the letter, your picture should be embedded on your post, like this:

http://i45.tinypic.com/23lkz7t.jpg

You can use this for anything from posting Rage Faces, posting pictures from lbp.me, and so much more!

1 Copy image location

3 select URL as file type

No need to mess aroud with saving the image locally.

But my way you can also save the image for later use. :)

That would be a case of switching tinypic for photobucket keep the clutter off the hard drive.

Photobucket and imgur don't work for me, but tinypic does, so this is what I chose.

I prefer Picassa myself but also, when clicking on the "insert image" tool and clicking the "from URL" tab, be sure to UNCHECK the box that says "
Retrieve remote file and reference locally"
if you don't uncheck this box the pic comes out like this:

40574

same picture with the box Unchecked.
