Oh yes, I can help with that.

To add an image, you find an image you want somewhere online. If it's on your computer, you'll need to use photobucket or iaza so that we can get the image URL. So let's use this chao on the main website as an example:
Image

You take the image you want, right click it, and copy the image URL. This picture has the URL of

Code: Select all

http://chao.hippotank.com/gallery/images/twotone/neutralnonetwotonenormal.jpg
You take that image URL and put it in between

Code: Select all

[img][/img]
Thus, we have

Code: Select all

[img]http://chao.hippotank.com/gallery/images/twotone/neutralnonetwotonenormal.jpg[/img]
Or
Image

Now it should be good to go. Just remember that there are limits to picture sizes and if you're going to post a huge picture, put it inside spoilers.

Code: Select all

[spoiler2][/spoiler2]
^spoiler2

Also remember that all shortcuts are located below the subject line, meaning you can easily put down the code without having to type it all out.
