Well, I have made a few guides and I figured that I'd share them. I also need to post them so that I can PM a few to a few people, so I figured that this would be a great place to do so.

Lots of people have been asking how I do it, so I decided to make this guide for the 3 most popular Internet Browsers on how to post a picture from the internet. This will work with all sites, including google, not just the site that I used for this guide ;)

10) Open up your internet browser and go to an image hosting site. I love www.Photobucket.com because you can create an account and upload your pictures into an album. You can protect this album so that only you can see it unless you link a specific picture into a forum (This is default). If you don't want to create an account, go to www.TinyPic.com.

On www.TinyPic.com, select browse, find your picture, and then upload.

TinyPic:

12) On the posting, pm, or edit signature page, press ctrl+v wherever you want the picture

You're all set! In the posting/sending/editing window, the text should look similar to this (different image address though):
