Does BPL allow you to post photos that are already hosted on the internet? I have a Smugmug account that makes editing and posting photos super easy (on every forum but this one). Having to upload photos specifically for this site is kind of a huge pain, particularly when resizing pictures is so much easier when they are already hosted online.

I've tried using the [img] blahblahblahlink [/img] format, which works great on every other forum, but it doesn't work here... :(

Edited: nevermind. although the [img] format doesn't work, I figured out a way to do it using the "embeddable links" feature on smugmug. Yay! :)

Actually, it does work -- it just uses slightly different syntax.

Say your photo URL is http://cdn.freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/toilet-house.jpg. Type out the following (DO NOT just copy and paste):

<img src="http://cdn.freshome.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/toilet-house.jpg">
