You can attach images directly to your posts/blogs using the full editor. When creating a topic attach images at the bottom of the editor. When replying choose More Reply Options for the full editor. You can choose more than one image with the Advanced Uploader. However if you experience errors choose the Basic Uploader. Once uploaded they will appear at the bottom of your topic unless you choose Add To Post. Put the cursor where you want, then click to add. You can still move the image code around to wherever you want. You can also preview your post. Once satisfied, post the topic.
You can upload images to the global albums or create your own albums. You can choose more than one image with the Advanced Uploader. However if you experience errors choose the Basic Uploader. Once uploaded you will have different sizes for viewing and if you wish to use these in forum posts click Options > Shae Links.
In the text editor you will see My Media. This will allow you to share your uploaded images in new posts without having to reupload them.
In summation, you can post images wherever you want. If you just want them in a topic use the attachment function. If you want comments on your images in am album post them in Gallery. You can still use these on the forum. It's like photobucket, but now on the site as a feature for you.
Your image must be hosted on a photo sharing website. Place the image code (of the actual image not the page, it will end with .jpg, .png, .gif) between the following code:

To use attachments and Gallery please UPGRADE here. Thanks!
