Pud has the right idea - using the attachment function is the best way of displaying images in any lounge.
I still don't quite understand how it is better for Alfaowner this way. As everyone viewing the image is downloading it (to their temp internet files or whatever) from Alfaowner.com, if it was in IMG tags they'd be getting it from Photobucket etc, I would have though this would reduce the amount of data Alfaowner's servers are having to send.. Also, when I attach an image to a post, Alfaowner is having to store that image, if I hotlink in the images lounge from photobucket, Alfaowner isn't having to store anything..
Or am I wrong?
