Donn West posted a good set of directions recently, but I can't seem to find it.
Basically, for a picture to be viewed here, it must already exist on the web.
Sony Imagestation is a popular picture hosting site. Register with them and upload the picture in question. Now it exists on the web.
Hit Ctl + N to open a second internet window. Now you can toggle back and forth between Imagestation and the WBF.
There are several ways to skin this cat, but my favorite is to double click on the picture and then right click and select "properties." Highlight and copy the URL (address of the picture) by hitting Ctl + C.
Alt + Shift toggles back and forth between open windows.
So hit Alt + Shift and go back to the WBF post.
Now in your WBF post box click on "Edit" and "Paste" and that'll drop the URL into your post.
At the very beginning of the address just before the "h" in "http:" type "" - no quotes
at the end of the URL (usually .jpg) type "" - again no quotes and no spaces ever.
It will look something like this:
]http://www.sony.imagestation.Pic.32infkip7od98h3.ciengkd. al.jpg (http://www.sony.imagestation.Pic.32infkip7od98h3.ciengkd. al.jpg[/img)
NOTE: In the above I intentionally put a space after the first IMG or it thinks it's looking for a real picture and gives me the dredded red x. There should be no spaces after or before
Donn's directions are better, and by way of disclaimer, I'm doing the Imagestation stuff from memory.
Expect to waste several hours. It's just part of the process. Norm and Ed helped me a couple of years ago and a couple of years from now you can help someone new. That's also part of the process.
When it works, sit back with a satisfied grin knowing that if you can master posting pictures, you can master anything :D :D
P.S. - You've got the IMG stuff right in the above, but you're missing the website information after http:// - also, there's a space between picture and 009. That'll derail the whole process every time. It's a web thing.

Go there, open an account (free)
Decide whether you want to bring the pics into an album, or just into your storage bin.
Follow ImageStation's instructions for uploading the pics.
After the pics are uploaded, click on one of the thumbnails to pop-up the full sized pic.
Right click on the full sized pic, and select "properties"
In the middle of the properties box is the pic's URL.
MAKE SURE THE URL DOESN'T END WITH ".orig.jpg"
If it does, don't highlight that part.
Highlight the URL with your mouse (left key-drag)
On your keyboard, hit CTRL-C
Start a post on the WB forum.
Under the text entry screen, are 2 columns of buttons.
Click the "Image" button.
A little image box comes up with http:// already highlighted.
DON'T SELECT THE IMAGE BOX WITH YOUR CURSOR, OR YOU'LL END UP WITH 2 HTTP://'s
On your keyboard, hit CTRL-V..then press enter.
Preview the pic with the "Preview" button.
