What equipment are you using? On my Android tablet I click the tiny mountain icon (among the B I U " etc.) above the blank box you want to fill, which produces the string
img /img (each portion is enclosed with brackets automatically), then paste an image addy in between the middle brackets ][ .

On my PC I find an image and right click on the image which gives me "Copy Image" and then I have the addy which I can apply as above...

With my Android (unlike my PC) the "Copy Image" won't work directly, I long-tap on the photo and chose the "open image in new tab" choice that shows up, then tap that new tab at the top of the screen and long-tap the address bar below it, which copies the addy into memory and allows it to then be pasted between the img and the /img...

Make sure whatever you're putting between the image BB code is an actual picture file with an extension like .jpg or .jpeg or .png or .gif, etc.

For example:

If you try to quote this reply, you'll see that particular image has a .jpg extension

Instead of "copy image" you need to select "copy image address", then paste it between the markers.

There's also another way if the image is on your machine as a file. When you are creating or editing a post, at the bottom you'll see two tabs: Options and Attachments.

Select "Attachments"
Select "Add Files"
Find the image on your computer and select it
Select "Place Inline"
Select "Submit"

I don't even see "copy image address" when I right click on the image.

In the post where you said "here goes nothing", you somehow had an image address that won't work for some reason.

However, you still made an error with the markers.

The opening marker should be "img with [] around it and the closing marker should be
/img with [] around it.

Your open marker is just a left bracket, like this:

[https://www.bing.com/images...

It should have worked. I tried the address you posted. It didn't work with the image markers but I posted the address into the browser and the image came up. I then right clicked, copied the image address and came up with a completely different address. I'm not sure where your address came from.

If you quote me you'll see the address I came up with.

Step 1: Find a picture.

Image




Step 2: Select the image you want, then right click and select "Open image in new tab". This will bring you to the actual image file with the file extension that is required.

Image




Step 3: Open the new tab and highlight the image URL. Make sure it has the file extension, in this case it is .png. Right click and copy the URL.

Image





Step 4: Select the "insert image" icon from the options above your text box.

Image




Step 5: Paste the URL between the BBcode. Your cursor should already be between them. You can right click and select paste or ctrl-v.

Image



Step 6: Submit the post.

Step 7. Enjoy!
