How to post pics

You simply go to a hosting site like Tinypic.com or something similar and download your pic to their site and several links will appear that you choose from to copy and paste to the Stereophile site. One of the links will say it's for discussion sites or something and usually has an img prefix and suffix.

Well, now the site is not taking the image

Sometimes the Stereophile site just puts in the link instead of the photo and sometimes the photo appears. [IMG]http://i61.tinypic.com/2vu0qq1.jpg[/IMG]
