Kater, I did that using the IMG code and I did it the extremely easy way.

The pictures need to be stored somewhere on the internet witha free service, for instance: www.photobucket.com. It's totally free, it send you no spam, the only thing you'll have to suffer is the commercials on their pages.

You upload your pics to there (or another service like www.imageshack.com) and (here comes the extremely easy part) the service provides you with already made IMG code you can just cut and paste for every picture you uploaded/want to show! Open an account at photobucket, it's very user friendly and "how to" will show itself, just remember you need to use the IMG code and not one of the other two offered

If you have your own website or webspace somewhere you can use that too. In that case you need to figure out the URL for the pic. For instance: if I wanted to post a picture from the Pern Encyclopedia here that is already on my site www.pern.nl, I would click the little picture icon (the one above with the mountains) and use the complete URL for the pic, e.g. (imaginary) http://www.pern.nl/pe/imagename.jpg. That also makes the pic show up in your post. This is the way to use if you already have your holiday/dolphin pics somewhere on the net.

Good luck! I'm looking forward to see your pics
