Welcome aboard, Darren, good to have you with us!

Best to check the 'Forum Technical Assistance' subheading for questions like this. The short answer is that you'll need to upload your photos to one of the many photo-hosting websites, then paste the active links into your thread using the "insert/edit image" button in the "Post Body" box that comes up when you start or reply to a thread. [It's the button that looks like a picture-frame with mountains.]

The actual linking process may vary a bit depending on which hosting site you use. If you already have an account with one -- or when you decide on one -- you can do a forum search with that name for details. Most of the sites have been debated ad nausem, so you should be able to get some good ideas.

But if you still have questions...don't hesitate to ask, the more specific the better. It's a pretty friendly group here, and we're always happy to help one of our own.

Cheers

Greg

Welcome to the Forums!

Postimages is a free photo hosting service.  It's worked well for me.

I concur on that; Postimage seems to work well, and after you get used to the process, it's pretty easy.

Thanks everyone. I have a photobucket account so will give that a go - hasn't worked that well in the past but let's see...

Arggh, Photobucket won't even let me copy the IMG links via Safari web browser. Have joined Postimage.

photobucket was everyone's choice until they decided to hijack everything and demand a ransom to fix it

You should be able to get a link for each image in Photobucket, that you can paste into your posts here.
 
Here are some other posts here in the forum, on how to add pictures to posts.  They might help you:
