A big help is the Fark Scratch Pad. It lets you make comments, post images, &c. for practice. I do a trial run before almost every Farktography theme.
RE: ImageShack, I suggest using Photoshop to resize your image to Fark standards (< 60K and < 700 px wide and < 1200 px tall). You're probably already doing that. When you post to the 'Shack, don't let them resize to 240x320; uncheck that box. After uploading, don’t post the “thumbnail” code, find the embeddable code. If the IMG src has something like flood83zk.th.jpg in it (the ‘th’ is important) then you are posting the thumbnail. The embeddable link for sites will look like:
You can simply copy-and-paste that link into the scratchpad and see what happens.
You can also find the “direct” link. It will look something like this:
And then you can wrap your own img tag around that if you should want.
Using ImageShack, you may be able to get a higher res image uploaded. In that case, you’d probably want to upload the high-res one AND a Fark-sized one. “Simply” wrap the Fark-sized one in an anchor tag that href’s on over to the high-rez URL. Something like:
The Farksized image will be shown, which, when clicked, will bring up the hi-res one.
Easy! (yeah, right. Use the scratchpad).
