Here's some how-to instructions from a prevous post by Talk Host:

Go to photobucket.com and open a free account. You will see there where you can upload pictures from your computer. Follow the instructions at photobucket.com. In short order, you will learn how to upload pictures from your computer to photobucket.com. Once your picture is there at photobucket, you can post it here.

Here's how. At photobucket.com, where your picture is now posted, you will see, just under your picture a URL. That is the exact URL where your picture is on the internet. Highlight that URL and copy it by rightcllicking it with your mouse and selecting "copy." Now, come back here and create your message. Where you want the picture to be place, place your cursor and right click your mouse and select "paste." You will now see the URL where your picture is located. It will look like this.

http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o.../paneras51.jpg

But wait, there is one more step. HIghlight the url, then look up at the top of the composition window....right above the cute little smiley face icons and you will see two rows of square icons. In the second row, the first one is a little color wheel. You want to click on the next one. That is the insert image command. That will give your URL instructions to point to the internet. It will look the same as above, but now, the letters IMG will be in front and back of the url. You will not see the picture at this point, but if you click preview or post.........poof, your picture will be visible.

I really don't know for sure. I went to the URL where you have the picture stored. I copied the URL and pasted it in the message window. I highlighted it, then clicked on the "image" icon above the text message window, and voila, it was there. :dontknow:

No, I believe that when you copied and pasted from where you had your picture stored (photobucket?) you did not copy the url. You copied the location chain. Be sure you copy the thing beneath it that says URL.
