I have a dumb newbie question, even though I'm not a newbie.

I've seen posts with images that the poster inserted, along with text. How do you insert an image in a post? It would be very useful to illustrate problems, questions, etc. I see there is an "Img" formatting tag, but if that is the means, I don't understand how to use it.

Windows 10 (21H1, Version 10.0.19044.1586)
BOINC 7.16.20 (x64)

Thanks.

Doug

The image should be posted on some picture hosting service on the net and put the url-address of the picture between the [img] tags.

The image should be posted on some picture hosting service on the net and put the url-address of the picture between the [img] tags.
Additionally, the image -URL should end on .jpg, .bpm or .gif , it cannot be the 'anonymous URL' some image sites use. A good free one is https://imgbb.com/
