    Its 4th from your right on the small toolbar and looks like a picture of a small tree. If you hover over it it says insert/edit image.

    You actually don't even need to use the button. You can just copy/paste an image directly into the post.

    You can also just add [ img ]link[ /img ]

    Remove the spaces, putting the link in where it says link.
    Tapatalk also has a image link button if you click the gear in the bottom right corner of the text box.

    And if you want to ask that kind of question without looking like a dweeb, there is a thread just for that In the Welcome forum. I just brought it back up yesterday. I created it back in 2000, I think, as a place where new members can get the hang of the boards before venturing out.

    HOW DID I ONLY JUST FIND THIS OUT?

    All those unnecessary [ img ] and [ /img ]s.

    You can also just drag and drop an image from its location on another website.

    How about uploading images from my pc? Does it need to be put on an online location first?

    Both Imageshack and Photobucket have free accounts. I use the latter and haven't had any problems.

    You can also use Imgur without having to make an account. It also lets you drag and drop images.

    Imgur is much better, yes... quick and easy, and no account is necessary.
