I've tried inserting the URL's from dropbox, flicker, and google photos, none work.
I've also read the wiki on inserting photos into posts and tried to follow it step by step.

My senior brain is struggling with this. :shock:

Help please.
I hope I'm posting this in the correct board?

In a new browser window, navigate to imgur.com and click on "New post"
Follow the directions there. See how far you get.

Could you give an example of those URLs?

ETA: Ok, glad you're all set.

Thanks.
Livesoft's suggested image hosting website worked right away.
I tried working with my existing images on dropbox, flicker, and also tried google photos but the urls's did not spin up into the forum post.
Might as well go with what works by the experts for now.

Google Drive works, but you need to hack the URL. It's in the wiki: Posting images in the Bogleheads forum (Placing the image into a forum post)

If you run into any problems, post what you've done in the Please Try Out Test Posts Here thread and someone (including myself) will try and fix it.
