Off topic but I used your post to find a website that can host images for free for the purposes of making msgs in this thread that contain images. For other users, if you are looking for a suitable website, try http://photobucket.com/

Solved! Go to Solution.

Photobucket.com is also my personal favorite to use for images that I want to post in forums, in my opinion it is the easiest to use for this purpose. There are a few others that are popular as well, such as imageshack.us and flickr.
Photobucket users can just click the URL for the 'direct link' on the photobucket page and the URL will be automatically copied to their windows clipboard.
Once the URL is on the windows clipboard click the button on the toolbar, and click into the 'Image URL' on the popup. The URL on the clipboard already has the http:// on the front of it, so take out the one the forum gave us and type CTRL-V to paste (or right click and paste) the clipboard URL into the pop-up. In most cases you can now ignore the rest of the inputs on the popup and just click the insert button.
Hope you don't feel like this after trying:
In any case, if anyone has problems let me know and i'll try and help you out!!

Important note: When posting screenshots it is important to make sure you are not exposing any personal information. Please edit any images to redact or remove items such as customer numbers, serial numbers, ID#'s, login information, etc. We are unable to edit indivdual images, so when personal information appears we have no choice but to remove the image from the post.
