Make sure the link for the pic ends in " .jpeg" or ".pgm". Also, be warey of sites like bizjournal for example that have a bunch of "X's" in the url link. Those won't work given the embedding. You have to extract them and either convert them to a different format.
When posting photos, use the "insert image button
"(place link here)
In between the two "IMG" tags, you place the image url. Just make sure to have the order of "/" correct if not using the image button.
I recommend using the advanced editor mode. That's all I use. Allows for more features.
The insert image pic is to the left of the quote symbol, and has a little display of a mountain image. A quick way of doing it is copy the image url using "control C", click insert image button, and press "control + V". It'll do it all in three steps and is quick.
In the case of imgur, just drag the pic from imgur into the desktop, and bam, you have a jpeg. Than just use the steps above.
Now for the case of images that are seriously impeded, sites that use protections, the ones where 99% can't extract it, there are tricks to get past that...
