This is occurring in the gallery, or trying to upload photos into your posts?

Yep, I worked on it for a few hours and it's still kicking my ass.

I'll try tomorrow with a fresh head, and a fat easter belly!

Don't know if this has anything to do it with it, but I can't post images on the forums. It usually ends up as a link or something.

Yeah, but look.
IMG tags can not have complex links. It does not work with HTTP get. (ie: Links with ? in it.)

Yes, the last issue is by design. It prevents malicious code.

Click the source of the google image to view the original on the originating website. Then, right click on the image and view it's properties/url and paste it here for it to work.

You can't just link to google thumbnails, sowwy. ;)

The site you're trying to link from may have disabled it too. Why not just upload that image to a free image host like www.imageshack.us? Someone, somewhere, is paying for the bandwidth you're stealing by linking that image.
