a quick tutorial i wrote a few days ago:
-go to http://imageshack.us/ (among others)
-click "browse" button to search your hardrive for the picture you want to post
-choose resize image? 640*480 will do
-click "host it"
-once the picture is uploaded on imagesahck a new page with many links will appear, choose the last down the page (direct link) and copy it (CTRL+C)
-come back to this thread and once you're in the reply plage, click on the little moutain icon (http://www.spyderco.com/forums/images/editor/insertimage.gif), paste (CTRL+V) your link in the text box that appeared, OK, post your reply, done...
if you're not sure it's gonna work, you can practice by just hitting "preview post" instead of "post reply"
if you have further questions, just ask :)

Hey, that was great. Now I know what I was doing wrong. Thank you so much for your help!

I always just use Photobucket; and I feel it couldn't be simpler:
-Click on the IMG Code thing (Make sure that the little yellow "Copied" box shows up)
-Go to post and hit Ctrl+V, or "Paste"
When I do it this way, it sizes the images correctly and everything. I don't know, maybe you've tried that and it hasn't worked. If so, I hope you find something that does. :o

Thanks Blackhair. Yes I did use photobucket. I just wasn't sizing the pics right. Thank you all.
