Sorry stupid question, but how do I load a picture with a comment/post?

When I click the button to insert an image or album it wants me to input a URL?

Can anyone help me with this, had hoped to post a pic of the G1's I have in my collection, ponies I have for trade, along with a couple customs mlp's I have. But having issues.

Thanks in advance,

Well, your photo needs to be web-hosted somewhere. So I use photobucket for a lot of my photos. I upload them there first, then I input the image URL here. Or, you can alternately upload your photos to a photo album here (in your profile) and then input them into your posts, etc. Does that make sense? I'm afraid I'm not very skilled at explaining this... @MustBeJewel can probably be much more articulate here....

Yeah definitely above my level of understanding. I'm more of a select a picture - upload picture - repeat! Can try uploading to my profile.... Thx CJFullmer, may have to wait for another pony to respond with more info. :)

Sounds great MustBeJewel! Tried figuring out how to attach pictures through my profile, but feel completely lost as there is no (that I can see) to 'Upload' a picture option. Anywhoo, you kinda lost me on your second comment....

My apologies, I had to make some temporary posts in order to make screencaps of them :) Pay the randomness no mind, lol! ;)

More tutorials are coming, I just thought you might like to start with those. I'll move this thread to the testing forum, and you can practice as much as you like :)
