I've seen people ask this on the forum countless times so I decided to make a quick step-by-step guide for you lovely people.

Step 1 - Find a image uploader

Choose an image sharer that you prefer. A simple Google search will find a bunch you can choose from. The most popular ones are TinyPic, Imgur and ImageShack.

​I will be using Imgur as an example.

Step 2 - Upload your image

Find the image that you want to upload.

Posted Image

Once you have found the image, Posted Image.

Step 3 - Copy the URL

You'll be automatically taken to a new page once your image has been uploaded. If you want to show in image in a post or thread, you'll want to choose the URL that is labelled 'Direct Link (email & IM)'.

The link will look something similar to this: http://i.imgur.com/uOlTF.jpg

Copy that and come back to OFT.

Step 4 - Embed your image in a post/thread

The next part is easy. Start up a post/thread and click the 'Polaroid' button.
Posted Image
Paste in the 'Direct Link' URL in the prompt window and confirm.

Posted Image

If you don't feel like clicking a bunch of buttons, you can also use the img tags but you gotta be super super advanced to learn this information.

Step 5 - Profit!

Posted Image

Congratulations! You are now renown enough to use the 'sup, bro?' expression.

Posted Image

Cheers.

***You don't need to save every image to use this method. If you find an image on Tumblr or the WORLD WIDE WEBZ (lol fag), simply right click and select 'Copy Image URL' and refer to Step 4***

Imgur has the code already for forums.
And all you have to do is paste that code.
