Mostly visit this thread to lurk and watch your guitar take shape, but since I know you're an instagram user you can host pics there and link here. I've used this with other sites and tested as a "preview" post to verify that it works for SOS, but don't have anything even remotely topical to demonstrate the principle in a real post. It's a bit of a faff, but basic process is (from PC - no idea if/how possible from mobile/tablet):
Go to the "view post" option for the pic you want to link.
Use developer view (F12 key in most browsers I think).
That'll open a little area/window showing the code for the page. It should hopefully also open a little "find" box - use that to look for ".jpg" - basically takes you to the picture file components without having to read through the code for the entire page.
One or two of them will be stuff like your avatar, but the actual picture will be prefaced by some stuff with alt=" (text from your post)", followed by the hastags from the post, and then src=https://(some long address ending with the jpg extension you're looking for). This should be the link for the picture, so just copy that address. Can then paste into the address bar to verify it's the right image.
You can then just paste this into the img brackets from the SOS insert image thing.
After doing it once it'll make sense, and isn't as convoluted as it sounds
Edit: Apologies if the how-to is a bit patronising. Just occurred to me that the average SOS poster is probably significantly more IT literate than me, so doesn't need the same level of handholding as my colleagues at work
