Thanks. All my pictures, except my avatar (hosted here), are hosted on my friend's servers.

If the image is hosted by you, you can use ats-tags.

If you use img-tags, the image will be turned into a link unless it's hosted on some domains which are excepted from automatically "turning into a link". Abovetopsecret is one of those domains, and images hosted there will show also when using img-tags. Some image hosting sites are also on the exception list, but I'm not sure which. But if you're hosting the image on an image-hosting site (photobucket, imageshack, uploadit.org, etc. ) , you're allowed to use ats-tags instead, and then the images will show no matter what host you're using.
Then there is the im-tags which can be used for hotlinked images (a link to the image will appear below the image), but be careful when doing this. Some sites don't like hotlinking, and they might switch your image into something else as they control the image. You can only be sure it won't change (or disappear) if you host the images yourself.
