I'm assuming that it has to be downloaded from a website? Is there another way to do it? I don't put photos online; I just tried this one on my VERY dormant facebook account and I guess it wouldn't load on the forum page.
The way I do it is with a free Photobucket account (Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket
). I usually shrink them down to a 640 x 480 pix size and save them in a separate file. I then go to Photobucket and upload them into my Photobucket file. After the upload I put my cursor over the picture and it gives me a drop-down menu of which I choose the bottom option called IMG Code, click on the option and it will say that the file was copied. I then go to my posting on NAFF and paste the photo into whatever I'm writing and there it is. Kind of a long process if you're just starting, but very simple once you're up and going.
There may be other methods, but that's the one I've used for years.
Hope that helps.
