The easiest way I've found is to host them
I use https://postimages.org/ no particular reason cept a friend suggested it and I've been using them for over a year and never had an issue.
Take the direct link from the pic you host and click the insert button. If you want to make sure it worked hit preview :3

Let me give it a try to see if it's working one sec :/

Alright! I think I figured it out.
Are you using the first link that just says link?
Or the second one which says direct link?

If you use the first one you get an alt text icon
If you use the one that says direct link you should be good to go.

As a sidebar, if you want to post more than one picture and it look a certain way you can make a picture collage on Canva or any other free site like that then upload the collage to that site, and bam. A little more work but sometimes worth it.

I use Imgur.com. Once you upload a photo you can right click on it, select Copy Image Address and then in Prosebox, click the photo icon in the upper right and paste the image address in and press enter. Voila!

Me too!!! I use imgur too but somehow it keeps saying ALT Text etc not the picture. I lose patience easily so have not gone back and tried again since I started a diary here not long ago. :-)
