To the best of my knowledge, you can not "add photos" to the forum. You can use other sites to host the image (like photobucket), and use a direct link with the image button on a reply. Im sure a moderator or admin will see this and help you more than i can.

Are you wanting to know how to insert images into a post itself?

If so, you just put the img tags around the url:
Code: [Select]
[img]url goes here[/img]

Your welcome  :)

Also, if you don't want to type out the img tags you can use the Insert Image button which is right under the Italicized button.

First, the image has to be hosted on another website such as DeviantART or FurAffinity or Facebook, or you could use something like ImageShack or Postimage to host a picture. Once you've uploaded a picture to a site like that, right click and select "Copy Image URl". Paste it into the post your replying to, highlight it, then click the icon that looks like a miniature Mona Lisa.

Just wondering if anyone can do this, or if it comes as a privilege through ranks. If so how?

Anyone can do it :D Just gotta keep the signature guidelines in mind (reasonable width, 100px max height, appropriate content)

Then, after uploading it to an image-hosting site (keep in mind that tinypic is blocked here), just past the direct link into this code:
Code: [Select]
[img]IMAGE LINK HERE[/img]And that's it :D

Have an image show up as not just a link?

If I made a thread or reply on a thread, how could I make an image link show up, rather than stay link text?

Two people started three different threads back-to-back asking how to insert images into posts and signatures.  I've merged them together, and for future reference, if you want to know how to do something technical, there's a Help button at the top of the page.  It is your friend.  It will never give you up, let you down, run around, or desert you.
