Use an image hosting site such as Imgur. Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

It's free. You will need to open an Imgur account to use it.


You should be able to copy and paste the email message into this forum without using a screen shot. Be sure to edit out

your email address or other personal identifying info before clicking on post.

I have gotten that message when using image URLs directly, but not when I attach an image I've saved (typically in JPG format, but I think it will work with most of the other common formats, too).


I don't bother with third party hosting if I've just got a couple of small images to include.  If you hit the "More Reply Options" button at the lower right side of the compose area it will bring you to the full-featured compose window where there's an attach function at the bottom.  As I reach the place in my message where I want the image to be included I simply attach the file and hit the "Add to message" link once its uploaded.   A place holder is put into the text which, if necessary, can be cut out and moved about your text at will.
