    I just usually use the Img button and copy and paste a link from a different site like FB or Flickr, etc... someone once said they do that from an upload place somewhere on here but Ive never done it.

    Well here is the way I tell... do any of them have long, whispy, pointed feathers just above the tail (saddle feathers)? Like this:
