    1) Find an image that you like online. It has to be just an image/pic it can't be an image within a website.
    2) Copy it's http: address
    3) Then insert the address between [img]Insert Address[/ img] (no space on the / img) ***There's a tab button called img which does this for you***

    If you want to upload your own pics which are within RJ guidelines, use a "hosting site" such as photobucket to upload your own pictures.

    Beneath the video you'll see About, Share, Add To… etc.

    Click on "Share".

    Now click on "Embed".

    This brings up a box with the html code in it. There are also other options to select. I use "use old embed code".

    Copy the HTML and paste it into your post.

    It is that easy.

    You're welcome. Great info MikeW -- he's such a friendly guy! Several years ago I was on here, and I had to PM like 3-4 guys to finally get a clear answer on how to embed a video.

    I have another trick:

    if you want to make the picture smaller you have to add
    width="300px" in the middle of the code thing and it will make the picture smaller.
