As other have said, KerbalX doesn't host images, so you first need to upload them to an image hosting site like imgur

Then on the edit page for your craft there are two ways to add an image;
Along the top of the page is a toolbar:
P5HAWZH.png

drag the "image" box onto your page and a dialog will appear:
gtMqWoY.png

Then paste in the url to your image and click insert.

The other way to add an image is to add a "text container" and put the markup for the image in yourself.
Click on a container to edit it and add the url to your image like this

I don't believe KerbalX hosts pictures itself.  You need to link it.  It's been awhile since I uploaded a craft, but when editing one, if you click on the picture (Craft without your pictures should have a stock placeholder), it will convert to a text box.  You can upload your pictures elsewhere (if you're unsure how, click the link in my signature).  Then you can put in the tag for the image in the text box.

Multiple images should be in their own tags on new lines.

eg.

Yeah, that's why it's not working.  That's not a direct link for the image.  What you need to do is right click on the image, select "Copy Image Location", and paste that in.  Note the file extension (.png).  You can test it here first.  If it converts to a picture like below, then KerbalX should be fine with it too.

Also note that KSP has its own built-in screenshot system.  You can take screenshots by hitting F1.  They're automatically saved into the Screenshots folder in your KSP directory.  This is much more convenient than hitting PrintScreen as you don't need to save it somewhere before hitting another one.  It also won't have the window borders and bar at the top.

If you're using imgur, it's quite possible you're using the wrong link.

Can you post here exactly what you're pasting into that box?

Thanks for the help!
