How do I post a picture directly into a post so that you see the image without a link to another site. Tango seems to manage this but I have tried a number of ways without success. Can anyone help?

The image must be online already at Flickr or a blog, etc.

Then cut and paste the image address into the post.

Do NOT add any tags or codes. Just paste the address by itself.

Thanks Extra Crispy. I assume when I do this, the image appears and not a link?

For example, there is an image on my web site on this page:


If you right click and open the image itself in your browser bar is a URL ending with "b_z.jpg"

Just copy (Ctrl C) that entire URL and paste it here (Ctrl V). When I do it you see the image of a game below:
