Newbie Picture Upload Problems

I'm new to using forums and have been unable to discover how to attach a .jpg picture into a message. I was able to put some pictures into the "Albums" section but I don't see any icons associated with this message creation that allow me to link a picture to it. There is an insert image icon but it asks for a URL which is confusing to me?

unless you upload pics direct to the site you need to have a host for the pics like photobucket or something like it

All images have a URL. If you look at your picture from your user control panel, it even says what it is right at the bottom. That's the URL you enter.
eg., the URL for your picture below, is http://www.fordtough.ca/forums/pictu...pictureid=3114

Now, if you copy and paste that where it asks you (when you click the picture icon), you get this:


If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

Very nice looking truck, BTW!
