    Been a long while since I used forums to post a review. Do I need to find a 3rd party Image hosting service to post images into a thread?

    Nah, you don't have to. All you need to do is hit the [​IMG] in your message and then paste the image URL and there you go! :)

    Actually I figured out something different myself. I didn't have a url for any of my images so I started a Photobucket account and saved the images there. If your pictures aren't online they don't have a url... do they? :hmmmm:

    You mean like saved in a folder on your desktop? I do not know yet how to post images from your desktop or folder, but when I know I'll be sure to let you know. :)

    Where do you get your image urls Metroid Prime? I'm just saying you need to have your images online somewhere to have a url for them. I don't do facebook or any of the other social media sites.

    Yes, easiest I've found (that isn't blocked by my work firewall) is dropbox.
