Surround the URL of the image with [img] and [/img] tags ie:

 [img]https://mysite.com/myimage.jpg[/img]


Edit: If you paste and highlight the URL then click the Img button, the tags will be added.

It requires that you put the image on a third party hosting page and that it ends in a known image extension, jpg, bmp, gif, png

The forums don't store your image.

And the image host has to allow 3rd party viewing (some only allow the images to be viewed from their web site, and a link to the image on another site won't be viewable by the people using that site).
