Images that are to be viewed in a post must be uploaded to ATS buddy. Embedding external images will not work, I guess because 'hot-linking' to an
image whether it be yours or someone else's could go horribly wrong.
Imagine linking to an image of a boot, called boot.jpg then suddenly you or whoever has access to that image where its hosted uploads a picture of
some boobies but calls it boot.jpg. Where you wanted to show everyone your nice shiny new boots would be a picture of someone's norks instead
Uploaded to the ATS image hosting prevent this from happening and if inappropriate images were displayed on the forum it can only be the fault of the
owner of the account here on ATS and can not be blame on external sources.
Hope this helps clear this up a little
