First, you find/upload the picture online. Then you paste the image url in image tags, like so:
Code:
[IMG]http://kumakorner.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/kamina.jpg[/IMG]
If you wanted top post this:


Also, any type of image format will work as far as I know.

If I remember correctly, .xcf and .tiff files don't work here.

Well, I Made a few sprites that i needed to use on the awards ceremony, which is on the forum. I made them in paint, so do I have to post them on a webpage or something?

And, you should also save those sprite files in PNG. It's the best extension for sprite files, plus, it actually works on this forum.

Well, that's not always true.

.png works for everything, especially sprites, but it also takes up a rather large amount of space.
.gif is the next best thing. Just use a program like Giffy to convert bitmap files into .gif files without ruining the quality, and you've got a smaller file with the same quality.


.jpg is terrible for sprites, but with larger pictures like artwork, it works fine. (But you knew that.)

I forgot about that program. It does make .gif files look good.
