    If you want your own image instead of just one on the web, upload it to a photo database site like Imageshack or Techpowerup.
     
    Step 1: Find your image. Note the URL. Copy the URL to your clipboard. (Ctrl C)

     
    Step 2: Go back to the EVGA forum post you want to post a picture, on and click this icon. 

     
    Step 3: Paste your URL to the pop-up that appears.

     
    Step 4: Hit 
     
    Step 5: Hit  at the bottom of the page.
     
    Step 6: Revel in the awesomeness that is your posted picture.

    There is a sticky.  Or there was (and still is in a way).
     

    In the General section sticky area, click Archived Stickies Linked & Listed.  Then click User friendly image posting by ty_ger07.
     

     
    The method I use utilizes PGD Code directly which is what I prefer.  You can use the site's built in PGD Code generator as Sleepee demonstrated by using the buttons as an alternate method, but I prefer to use the code directly since I then have exactly the result I want instead of having to hope that the site understands my desires.   My preference for PGD Code is even more validated when wanting to insert an image in a link or text formating in a link or other similar compound operations.

    Dont forget to scale down your pic for the net, 800 pixels wide(for large pics) for most pics is fine. Gimp is also free. Feel free to PM me, for Gimp help.
     
    Ya can also screen cap your own screen with "print screen" windows, and paste into Gimp and then scale, save to your album in say Photobucket, and from there copy the "IMG" link and post the pic live in the fourm without adding an attch that people have to click to open.
     
    If I read to much into this, forgive me, its almost 3am, past my bedtime and Im still wired.

    It drives me crazy when people paste the code that imageshack/photobucket gives you.  They give you the code to make it "easy" but at the same time, they direct you to a webpage which is full of advertisements and other crap just to view the scaled down version of the image.  It's way nicer when people insert the actual image location, not the location of the webpage where the image is being hosted.
     
    For instance:
     
    This:
