I cant understand how to post a photo, help?

I thought I was doing it correctly, copying my Yahoo photo URL then pasting inside brackets after img src=. When I read the Help topics, it says to also use ALT in the URL. I have never done that. Where does it go and what do I type in after ALT? Each time I posted a photo in the message box, I could already see it in preview mode, but I am getting emails telling me the photo is not there, just a box with an x in it.

Yahoo doesn't allow direct linking. To hotlink to your photos on yahoo, album must be public.
You may want to check out these free image hosts that allow direct linking:
photobucket
imageshack.us
tinypic
