I tried a search using various key words on how to upload an image to a forum posting and got a load of unrelated answers. The image in question is stored on flickr, would that be the problem or is the url I copied wrong.....

Any info would be wonderful

With flickr, you have to extract the correct part for the link to work
 
Grab the HTML:
 h  ref="http://www.flickr.com/photos/prefect20/7436747958/" title="Gemma at the festival by gerryquiff, on Flickr">http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5198/7436747958_f71a3545a9.jpg" width="333" height="500" alt="Gemma at the festival">
 
Copy only the part I've made RED, then paste as the URL in the box provided.

If you use firefox then right click an image. Select Copy Image Location e.g. on your profile here your main image has location: http://images.purestorm.com/z-images1/imageupload15/oceanova_94256.jpg?538102241

If you stick this between [ img ] and [/ img ] tags (minus the spaces before and after img) you get ..
