Actually, what I have done to add the photos from my computer, using Flickr, is open the picture, resize it to medium, and then drag it over from my computer.
I haven't actually used the insert image button, now that I think of it. I couldn't get it to work with that. When I click on the insert image icon I get the box to insert the image URL and then click insert, and all I get is this icon, which when I preview it, nothing shows up. I will post this message now and see what actually happens.
Well, that just put in a link.
OK, I just tried a different option with Photobucket and it worked! Thanks for all the hints.
Flickr probably isn't going to help you as I see no way you can get a url address to link that ends in .jpg. I find it confusing. That's also why I don't use it.
When you are on your computer and you click on the Img url tag here in composing a message it means you have to have an image url location on the internet that begins with http and ends with .jpg like this:
Then you use the IMG BBCode tags of [IMG]at beginning and end of the image url location like the above example[/IMG] and you get this:
In Photobucket you can get your image with the tags in place so all you have to do is paste here. If you use the little insert/edit image icon and paste you url address there, then Roadfood will automatically add the tags.
I will repeat. You cannot add an image directly from your computer. You have to first upload it to a hosting website that will give you the url address I am talking about. If there is a legitimate image anywhere on the Internet with a .jpg suffix where you can Control-Click (Mac OS) or Right Button-Click (Windows) you can get its root image location.
Example: I went to Google Images and searched Blackstone Oven. I opened one the images and control-clicked to get "copy image location". I clicked on "copy image location". Then I clicked on the insert image icon here and pasted it in. This is the result.
