    Ok, its actually not that hard to do.
    Just follow the steps and depending the materials you have, may take 2-15 minutes of your time.

    materials:
    1. an account to one of the following:
    -http://photobucket.com/
    -http://www.flickr.com/
    -http://imageshack.us/
    -something you can upload the picture and grab its "IMG" code.
    2. pictures of what you want to upload or show.
    3. Time (obviously)

    since I already an account for photobucket, i'm just going to show the steps using photobucket.

    STEP 1: account and upload
    -side step: If you didn't have an account to any one of the above, sign up for one. Its fast, easy, and simple and no money is required, so don't worry about money.
    -once you have an account, upload your picture. circled in red.

    STEP 2: copying the img code
    once you've uploaded a picture(s), either do one of the two options:
    1. drag your mouse or cursor over a picture you want, 4 different codes will pop up, click the IMG code, usually when you click on the code, its should automatically copy it for you, but just right click and select copy, just in case. circled in red which one you should get.(should be the bottom of the four codes)
    [​IMG]
    OR
    2. select and click one of them. An example would be a picture of my Subaru:
    select the IMG code on the right of the screen, usually when you click on the code, its should automatically copy it for you, but just right click and select copy, just in case..
    [​IMG]

    STEP 3: pasting it to the "text/post reply" box.
    in my "testing img code" thread, I will be using it for an example:
    now when you start a thread or post a reply, it all works the same way. just paste the code into the text box and click "post reply".

    if you want to be on safe measures, preview it before you post just in case you grabbed the wrong code. but once this is done, have fun doing it again, and thanks for your time following these steps.

    Anyone know how to get this to work from instagram? For instance, have a pic I want to embed at http://instagram.com/p/mleVhohI7O/, but if I use the image tags it appears broken, as below ...
