First, you need to have copied a URL address of such an image file, like:
https://udemy-images.udemy.com/course/750x422/306130_cf58_3.jpg

Then, in TFD Forum editor, choose the image tag button and paste your image's address between the tags, like:
Code:
[img]https://udemy-images.udemy.com/course/750x422/306130_cf58_3.jpg[/img]


Click Post button, and there it is.

Thank you very much, Jyrkkä Jätkä, for your detailed explanation.

Sorry, my JPG file doesn't have a URL address, since it is a picture taken by my smartphone privately.

Then you have to upload your picture first to some photo sharing service in the net. Google Photos, Flickr, Photobucket, Facebook... There are plenty of them.
Search Google with "photo sharing sites".

A very simple (and free) solution which I use is called ctrlQ Image hosting. It is easier (for me) to use on a PC or laptop, but it will work on a phone.

If you open that link in a new tab and then click on "upload your image", then select the image you want to use, it will give you a url to use.

Copy the "direct link", not the "embed code".

This is an "Onsen hot pool" image from my desktop.

I just found this and wanted to share because I was looking for this since yesterday:

If you want to embed images in the forum, you have to upload it to one of the image hosting servers. I already use Google Drive but embedding an image from Google Drive is a nightmare because the link that it gives you doesn't work directly. Here is the link to a video that solves the problem and it's extremely simple:

So, if you already use Google Drive and want to embed an image without using another image hosting service, this should help.
