This may help: Posting images in the Bogleheads forum - Bogleheads.
Nisi will likely weigh in with specifics.

When people click on the link it will take them to the chart.

First create the image file to upload. An image file is like a photograph that you take of your display or a region of your display like a window.
There are many ways to capture images of your computer display. On a Mac, I use Grab and then just open the image which uses Preview to display the image. Preview can be used to edit and resize the image before uploading to tinypic.com

I frequently do, because of the "endpoint problem" mentioned by Munir. When I want to invite people to explore different starting points, I'll post both the screenshot and the link to the live chart.Jerilynn wrote:So you don't ever use that "share this chart" link in Morningstar?

As I mentioned in the posting just above - it's not getting the image, that's the simple part -
it's having to host it externally since the forum editing software doesn't handle a direct PASTE of the image itself.
How would you suggest clarifying this?If the image needs no editing, but it is not yet on a Web page
For every other image, then, the task is how to get it into the Internet--how to "host" it and obtain a URL for it. There are many "free image hosting" services. One example is tinypic . These free image hosting sites are usually supported by advertising. Moderate caution is advisable as in any Internet situation where you appear to be getting something for nothing. Once you have the finished image in a file, in one of the standard formats such as .jpg or .png, you go to the free hosting site, upload the image, and the site will give you the address of the place where it's hosted the image. Tinypic is an example of one that helpfully formats the complete "IMG code"--the url surrounded by the two IMG tags--so you can copy and paste it in directly.
