why is it that a picture to be paste on this board must be online?

    I don't quite understand the question. Elaborate.

    Because how do the boards know to read the file c:\image.jpg from your hard drive, as opposed to whoever's it is that's viewing the image?

    LB is right on the money here. Lemme explain a bit..*puts on her web master hat*

    See, it's the same reason why thee must upload graphics to make a web page else you will end up with broken graphics if you embedded any. Not everybody has what you have on your hard drive so...of course it doesn't work.

    That's why ya have to host'em, Fergus. A graphic must be somewhere on the web in order to embed it so everybody can see it. (Preferably without direct linking it if the page isn't yours, of course. That's bad.)
