The tags are how the forum software knows that you want to post pics that are hosted on another site rather than just giving a link to the pics.
The easiest way to do it is to click the postcard looking icon of the mountain just above the response box which will give you a pop up that tells you to enter the url of the image. The popup will add the tags for you. You can just type them by hand, which may be quicker and easier if you have many pictures to post.
For instance, this picture
looks like this in text
[IMG]http://www.bentring.com/jeep/pics/whitejeep.jpg[/IMG ] but with no space before the the last ] . The tag is the IMG in brackets and notice the / on the second IMG.
If I weren't to use the IMG tag that picture would show up as
which is a clickable link but is useless when you want people to see the pictures in a thread.
To put text just above or just below a pic you simply type what you want to type in the response box, then hit enter to go down a line and post your link of the pic in IMG tags on the next line.
Text above picture [IMG]link-to-pic[/IMG]
[IMG]link-to-pic[/IMG] Text below picture
It's usually best to put a couple or three empty lines between pictures so everything is easily understood. And the Preview Post button is your best friend so you can see how things will turn out before replying and you will be able to change things that are mistyped etc.
