How would I go about linking to an image on another site without uploading the actual file to my site ? I need to link to some images that are located in a photo hosting site .

Well to display in PhotoPost you would need to upload the file in some other page you can link with a simple html img tag however note you must get the original posters/sites permission before you can link any image from another site.

I am assuming the tag would look like this
Where would I put it ? I tried a couple of places like
Retrieve all images from a URL: under extra options but it did not work .

Well let's see so your definately trying to put this on your photopost then you would need to upload it to your photopost. There are two ways.
If your using the latest photopost you should be able to use retrieve from url and place a direct image link like so in there
The other way would be the traditional way of downloading that image there from that site and then reuploading it into your photopost using the traditional upload method.
