I am going to tell you how I think that it is done and hopefully someone will say that is right or wrong.
First... I see that you are new here, so let me give a warm welcome. I hope that you find ATS as enlightening as I do.
The mods are usually jiffy quick about this, but they can't get to everything.
If you can't get an answer to other questions, then you can PM me and I will do my best.
The first thing that you need to do is log into the media portion of your ATS profile.
After you log into the media portion, then you will have to upload the external image. You need to make sure that you have the right to use this
image, so definitely check.
If not, then it has to come from a URL.
After the image is uploaded, then go the image and it should have, or at least it used to have, 3 numbers at the bottom.
The old layout had a background image number...
And avatar number and an image text number.
Look to see if it has an image text number below the pic.
Copy and paste the image pic number to the URL in the image link, and then presto... whammo...
It should show up.
(you may have to place the number in between [ex- img ].......[ /ex -img].
(leave out the spaces)
Or something to that manner.
Skeptic Overlord has a thread describing the fair use concept and I will try to find it on search and post it here for you.
That was how we used to do it. I think. I haven't posted an image in a while, so please excuse me if I am wrong.
Hopefully someone will chime in and let me know if I am right or wrong.
