You need to use a 3rd party image hosting website, and then paste a 'direct link' for the image on that site into the pop up box that you get when you click the 'Insert Image' icon.


I use imgbb.com - nice and simple.

+1 for imgbb.

Free, no ads/pop-ups and easy to use.

If you have already uploaded your pics onto your blog then you can use your blog as your "third party host"...





Right click on the image within your blog that you want to post on here.  Select "copy image address".  Click on the "insert image" button above the post reply box / smileys.  Paste the link into there and click okay.  Your photo will appear just like that ^^^

It's worth mentioning that different browsers might word this differently - for example, Firefox will offer 'Copy image location' - or (if I remember correctly) in the case of Internet Explorer not provide the option at all. There is a convoluted work around in IE however.
