you need a flickr, photobucket, or other account (which are free, up to a point) to where you can upload your photos (I like flickr).
Once you've signed up and follow the instructions to upload your pictures, do the folllowing:
1) Go to the flickr website, click on the picture you wish to display on the CD forum until it appears full size (usually this means clicking on a thumbnail, and then clicking on the magnifying glass above the image)
2) With your mouse on the full-size picture, right-click (not the left mouse button, the right mouse button) your mouse and select "copy image location" from the pop-up menu. You have just copied the image location into your computer's memory.
3) Now, either start a new thread on CD, or reply to a thread where you wish to post your photos.
4) Above the message box where you enter your text upon replying to a thread, there is an icon that looks like mountains inside of a square; it's to the right of the globe with a chain link beneath it.
5) Click on the mountain box icon and you'll be prompted to enter the URL of your image.
6) Now, if you've properly copied the image location into your computer's memory (as outlined in step 2), all you should have to do at this point is clear out the http:// that's already there (delete it) and then press CTRL-V (paste) simultaneously on your keyboard.
7) Click the OK button once you've entered the url. You'll see an image location appear inside the message box. You can repeat this process with as many images as you wish to post. Make sure the insertion point for your images are below one another in the message reply box. I usually separate my images with a space or two, and enter a title above each image url if desired.
8) Once you're finished inserting image URLs, click on "post reply" and you should see the image displayed as it appears on the original website.
NOTE: Don't use webshots because webshots won't let you link directly to their images. I recommend flickr. When using flickr, make sure and click on the magnifying glass with the + inside of it to view your picture full size (and copy that image location into your computer's memory if you really want people to view your picture full size on CD).
