Wow wot a challenge. You have correctly posted your desired image's internet address (URL) I proved it by merely clicking it and up came the lightfoot family photo. To actually display it u then you have two choices(semi-automatic or manual).While the image is visible copy its address to your clipboard highlight it then press Ctrl + C
on the toolbar (at the top of the text input box) click the little rectangle with a small mountain on it (the third icon from the right if you hover our mouse's cursor over it a popup pops up clearly saying "insert image begorrah
A dialog box will pop up saying "please enter the URL of your image" with a box containing http:// which is highlit simply press the enter key and woosh it l disappear leaving an empty address box, Now with the cursor in the now empty box area simply press Ctrl + V to paste the address in from your clipboard. press OK and bingo
or the old longer method is to type the bulletin board's simplified tag [img] then paste in the URL then type the closing tag [/img]
i.e. [img]complete address[/img]
Those manual instructions can be seen if you scroil don on the linked page for "BB code" on
for your example therefore the exact syntax is to type [img]your URL complete with the http:// prefix then[/img]
I will type it below but put imz instead of img then type it again with img
Hrrmph you had the incorrect address it is actually in full
"Sir" John Fowles Bt
Honorary Curator Bootleg Museum

(where Sir does not signify that I am a fully benighted Knight just a Bt which signifies a humble Baronet -?? read the wiki!)
I meant no one no harm
Once inside we found a curious moonbeam
Doing dances on the floor
