    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 ;)

    Internet Explorer:

    Let's take an image from a smiley site and post it on the DIS

    1) Find the image you want
    [​IMG]

    2) Right Click on it
    [​IMG]

    3) Left-click Properties
    [​IMG]

    4) Double left-click on the Image URL
    [​IMG]

    5) Press ctrl+c

    6) In the DIS window, left-click the mountain icon (if this is not there, see "What to do if the mountain icon is not there" at the bottom of this post
    [​IMG]

    7) Highlight the http:// and press ctrl+v
    [​IMG]

    8) Press OK

    9) View your post!

    Goofy's Guide to Cropping and Posting Pictures
    Ok, here we go, please PM if this doesn't make sense
    1) If you have a Microsoft Computer, go to the Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Paint
    [​IMG]

    2) Press ctrl+O and browse for your pictures
    [​IMG]

    3) Click the select tool
    [​IMG]

    4) Click and drag over the area you want to select
    [​IMG]

    5) Without clicking anywhere, press ctrl+C to copy the selection

    6) Press File > New
    [​IMG]

    7) Press ctrl+E and set the length and width to 1 pixel. This prevents excess white space around your picture when you paste it.
    [​IMG]

    8) Press ctrl+V to paste the selection.

    9) Press ctrl+S and save it in the desired location.
    [​IMG]

    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.
    [​IMG]

    On www.Photobucket.com, select Choose Files, and it will automatically upload.
    [​IMG]

    11) On both sites, select IMG Code and click on the address to copy.

    Photobucket:
    [​IMG]

    TinyPic:
    [​IMG]

    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):
