    No, you can't just do an IMG from a location on your computer. You can:

    (i) upload an image file as an attachment (Attach Files: Manage Attachments)

    or

    (ii) upload to an image hosting service and then do an IMG to that location.

    Yeah, 1.Bd4! with the deadly double attack on the Q as well as 2. Qxf7+ Kh7 3.g8=Q ##. With the K on h2 as per the diagram, Black can defend with 1... Qd6+ and 2...Qd7.

    Nice. First move is not too hard to find but white's second move is very tricky.
