I know it's probably simple, but I really want to know how.

Make an account on imgur, or a similar image hosting website such as Photobucket.
Then, you can upload your desired photo into your account on one of these sites. I don't have very much experience with any other image hosting sites, but on imgur, once you click on a photo you've uploaded, there's an option that says "Linked BBCode (message boards)" under which is an address that can be copy-pasted onto your post here at PEEL.

I hope that explanation was at least somewhat helpful; if not, I'm sorry for being a bit incoherent.

Also, if you have Google Chrome (I'm not sure how this works on other browsers, but normally there's an option somewhere for the direct image URL) and know how to use the code, then you can right click the image and there should be an option that says "Copy image URL." If you copy that URL and paste it into the code, then it should show up.

Just without the spaces.

Those are fine explanations smile  And if I might add one thing, once you paste the BBCoded link into your message it'll look something like:

so just try the Preview button to make sure that it looks like you want before posting.
