This is for an image that is already online. If the image is not already online, you need to upload it somewhere. The nice thing about Photobucket is that it is free, allows hot-linking (linking to the image on sites around the web), and will provide the IMG code for inserting the image into your posts.
Thanks Panda for the nice explanation. I have a couple of follow-up questions. Why does the url image info. get brackets around it instead of the greater-than, less-than signs that usually surrounds html?

And, so with the hotlinking, I can upload a photo or an image to photobucket.com. They will give me an image url for it, and then I can (using the same process as I did with this last image) post that image on other web sites?

Thanks,

Gregg
