tony - if you are not using a 3rd party host (which i HIGHLY recommend) then you can use the add image to post button to the upper left of the reply box and follow the directions there.
the issue is that they only provide a thumbnail of the image and more often than not resize your image so it still does not look nice and large when clicked.
going back to the OP (Original Post) i have laid out how to use a 3rd party host once you have an account. some of the more popular are Photobucket, Picasa, and img serve (img serve uses the button but with an account you can manipulate your image as foar as size and quality are concerned.)
When I use the system as you show with the screen capture I get a small icon in the reply page if I click this I receive an error message, by chance my try which worked I had pasted the URL into the reply page I did not use the insert box.
So just to make sure I had another try with an image of USA 2008 SG4265 old blue eyes and it works.
It means if you are using photobucket you do not need the 6th box Insert Image
I will start a new thread or join in on one already running to see if I am correct

Greetings Mr. Bear . I was using the "Add image to post" button cause it is the easiest of all to use. That's good. But we only get a thumbnail, regardless the size. That's bad. For the last couple of images I posted I went through this following process: . Step one: Open new tab to Photobucket, sign in and Up load scan. Step two: Click on picture in Photobucket that I want to put into Stamp Bears. Step three: Highlight the bottom option. (For some reason, a left click nor a right click does not highlight any option. I need to left click and control the whole url information. Step four: Go back to tab w/Stamp Bear and my comment Be sure to use "Reply" and not "Quick Reply". Step five: Copy the url in the location where I want it to show in the comment block. Step six: Finish my comment, click on "BBCode" (bottom left of comment box). Step seven: Click back on the "Preview" tab next to the "BBCode" tab. This displays the photo/scan/image as it will look. Step eight: Go back to Photobucket and logoff/logout. . I just ignore that little "Insert Image" button all together. . Respectfully,
