The URL is the thingy in your computer's address bar. It is the place on the Internet where something exists. To post a picture, you first need the URL of where the picture is hosted on the Internet. If it's an image you yourself made, you'll have to upload it to the Internet somewhere, but that's a different tutorial. Once the image is hosted somewhere online, you need to get the URL. You can usually do this by right-clicking on the image, at which point you should see an option like "copy image location" or "copy image URL". Once you have the URL of your image you put it between the image tags.

So I'd put in this:

Code: Select all

You have to use the Image button rather than the URL button for images.

Code: Select all
