First of all, you will need to set up an account on photobucket or similar photo hosting site. Upload your photos and then grab the "url addresses" for the images you want to add to your thread, which the photo hosting site should give you (it will start http:// - e.g http://www.photosite.com/account/photo1.jpg). When you post a thread, click on the second button on the bottom row above (square with a picture frame in it) and you will see {img}{/img} appear, paste the url address in between so it looks like {img}http://www.photosite.com/account/photo1.jpg{/img}. You can do this more than once per thread so your thread would look like:-

"Here are some pics of my layout:-

{img}http://www.photosite.com/account/photo1.jpg{/img}
{img}http://www.photosite.com/account/photo2.jpg{/img}
{img}http://www.photosite.com/account/photo3.jpg{/img}

Hope you like..."

When you Post the thread, the pics should then appear.
Good luck

I found the full size photo in your photobucket, right clicked on the photo then went to "Properties", and copied the url (http:) code from there and pasted it in the {img} boxes. I think you were given the wrong url code the first time.
