posting a picture with a Mac

I have been trying to post a picture in the forums or in a text using this formula: I am on Mac 9.2

I have pictures on different photo sites, with proper urls,
my technician couldn't do it either.
I can copy and paste the link with no problem, it just doesn't show the picture instantly on the message, only a box with an icon.

Can anyone help ??

You have to put the entire web address of the pictures you are posting between the " " in the code.

Mitch,
You didn't mention which image hosts you are using. Most don't allow direct linking which could be the reason for getting the red x. You used the correct command: <img src=Paste URL here>. Quotation marks are optional.

Here is a link that might be useful: Online Photo Resource Guide

I finally managed to do this. I screamed with joy when it worked,
If someone else has problems doing this with a Mac, I can help now..... The Mac mouse doesn't have a right and left click, so you have to press Control then click, to get an url in a different window than the original one, this was a small detail but I was stumped without knowing it.
