60. Well, it kind of depends on what device, operating system, and browser you are using.

The basic idea is to copy the web address of the image and paste the text of the URL in your post. Typically on desktop/laptop operating systems you right-click (or ctrl-click for Macs) the picture and select Copy image address (wording varies by browser). Then you just paste that URL into your post and DU software will almost always display the image when you preview and/or post it.

For mobile devices, you usually need to press and hold the image to get copy options - although sometimes you need to do an extra step to get the text of the URL instead of just a copy of the picture itself. You can usually Google questions like this to get an answer tailored for the device/browser you are using - try something like Get image URL android.

Eventually you should get an address like this to paste into your post...

... which should display this when posted...
