Here's what I do.
-open another window
-google topic of interest
-click images at top of page
-click on image you want to use
- highlight url or website address then right click to copy
-click the scenery icon 'mountain range & sun' next to the globe and chain link. You'll see it.
-right click & paste the url of copied image from google or any website
-click Post Quick Reply
Done.

Do a google search for BB code ( simple bracket commands ) for a quick overview

Upload your photo to photobucket or similar site
Get the BB code for your photo
Insert the BB code with the url to the photo to your ad
The photos will appear in your add without clicking on URL's
Make sure your images are not too wide ( under 900 pixels or less )

or

use troysland instructions and use the chain link to automatically insert the BB code commands to the url, of the photo that you have chosen
