Once you have made or obtained the image you wish to post on the forums you will then need to upload it to a image host or file server that can be accessed by others via the web. Such services are offered free by sites like http://www.imageshack.us/. Once you have uploaded your image with this service or if you have your own file host then you need to copy the URL to that image.
The forums use both HTML and Forum code for posting. Using either of the two forms would work on the forums but we suggest using the Forum Code when linking an image.
Using http://www.imageshack.us/ you will first need to browser for the file then submit the file.
Once the file is submitted you will be send to a new page.
On this page you will see a line that says Direct link to image, copy the line of text just before this and you are almost done.
Now by adding the forum IMG tag into your signature or forum post you will be able to show off your image.

By using the above code in your signature, or your post you will see the below image show.
Offcourse you can also use http://photobucket.com/ or any other service you prefer.
