You need to have or create an account at a photo hosting service like photobucket.com. There many others, I mention it only because it's the one I use.

When you have that you can upload photos from your computer to your page at photobucket.com.

Once you have completed that, when you have your picture and hover over it, a pull down menu will show up and you want to copy the ' IMG ' tag which will start with the [ I M G ] (no spaces).

Just paste that into you message and you picture will show up in your post.

without the spaces in the tags will be this..

Good luck!

Sheesh, after typing all this I see the guys are hosting pictures now! So just click on the attachment tab below where you create the message and browse your computer for the picture you want.

It needs to be less than 500k, so make sure you create a lower rez version if your taking there with a 5 megapixel or greater camera and using high quality settings.

The method I gave above still works great, and you can make galleries and share across the web etc.

But this way here is much easier.
