Posting pictures

Well yeah; but I'm just trying to post pics from the web and they keep turning into links instead of photos.

Frustrating and I'm not sure what/if I'm doing something wrong.

I thought you just posted some text and the photo's url.

The URL needs to end in .jpg or it will just show up as a link.

URLs ending in .jpg, or (less commonly) .gif or .png are addresses of the image files, so they can be displayed.

Any address ending in .html, a / or some programming language like .php or .asp is the address to a page, so it can only be a link.

Except for youtube addresses, which are predictable enough to extract the movie from and show it.
