Hi,

Problem uploading an image. I see the [img]Img] & [url][/url] buttons but no description of their function.

1[ If I post the image on a web image site, I post using the [url][/url] button?
2[ Then if I want to post an image on my laptop, I can copy/past it right into the space which is the smart way.

Please advise.
