    Don't type the text onto the page.
    Click the icon to the right of the smilies icon. (If you move the cursor over it a box with the word "image" will appear). Copy the text beginning "http" into it and click "insert".

    You are using Internet Explorer from what you've said in the chat-box. I would strongly recommend using another browser instead of IE. Mozilla Firefox would be my choice but Google Chrome is also good. Firefox can be downloaded here:

    The button FLV was talking about should work as well. You can also save it to a folder on your computer and use the upload a file button below the reply screen.

    I didn't type that in I copy and pasted that is how it showed up. I don't have any icons on my message box. Maybe I should have them but did something wrong with my set-up.

    In the area where you type in a message, there should be a toolbar above it. To the right of the emoticon tool, there is a picture icon. If you hover over that, it will say "image". Click on it and it will come up with a window that you can paste the URL of the pic. That's what flv was referring to. Otherwise, you still should be able to just right click the picture and select "copy". Then hit "ctrl V" when in the reply window and it should paste it. That is what I did up above and it worked in IE.

    Your reply box should look something like this:

    I have ringed the icon you need in red. If you don't have those icons then that is where the problem lies.
