Do you use the attachments tab in the [Full Editor & Preview] box?

What's the link for the image?
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

You need a direct link of the image for the [img] tag to work. The link will end in .jpg, .png, .bmp, or some other type of .xxx extension. To get this link on mobile, hold-tap the image, select "open image in new tab," then copy the URL in your browser's address bar.

Correction, I just saw it's a Pinterest link. Pinterest is annoying. You'll have to download the image, then reupload it to TinyPic, Imgur, or some other image hosting site to get a direct link.

You can also try uploading it through the attachments function on the site, but to do that you need to use the RPF Legacy app or the mobile website. Considering your signature is inside your posts, not under it, I'm assuming you're using the old RPF app.

Yeahhh, the old app had a more straightforward internal upload system, but our developer doesn't support it, so the server the "upload image" option connects to doesn't exist anymore. I usually just upload stuff to Imgur and direct link it with the [img] tag
