    It's an image that I can't save to my computer or I would try that. So you really can't link an image from a URL?
    Pardon my ignorance. I fail to understand.
    Can you not use a screen capture software to snip the image at all ?
    I have yet to encounter a situation where I cannot snip an image or even an entire page from any website.

    Go ahead and post a link to where the image is at, and I'll test to see what the issue may be.

    Some sites do not allow their posted images to be linked via URL. Since you can't save the image to your computer, this may be the situation.
    I know it's possible because I've seen other post this same image. But when I try to insert it using the link and the insert image button. Nothing shows up.

    You may have just not entered the URL correctly. You have to use only the URL bit and not all of the html coding in the link they provide.

    Here's what I used below to show the image under it.

    It's a speed test result and if you right click on it like you usually would to save an image, it just starts the test over again.

    What "right click" ? I was not suggesting Copy/Paste.
    Most likely I failed to make my suggestion clear.
    I was suggesting taking a screenshot of the image and saving it to the computer.
    Do you have a screen capture software installed ?
    If not, the built-in Snipping Tool will do the work although with limited functions.
    I am using a 3rd party screen-capture software called Picpick.
    See the result on post #73.

    Ok here it goes,

    This blank space is where I keep trying to insert it and nothing is happening.

    Now you said just to use the url bit and not all of the html stuff, what does that mean? Did you use the insert image button when you put yours in?

    If you use the "Insert Image" button, don't include the [img] bb code bit, and only use the URL inbetween it.

    You know, you see an image on a website, you put your cursor over it and "right click it", that brings up a menu where you can"save image as". That's how I've always saved images.

    I do have a screen capture tool for Chrome

    But I want to know how this poster did this straight from the speed test.

    Speed test recommendations?
