This forum doesn't allow uploading files or images, so you first have to get somewhere to host your image. (Or find a site that will not object to hotlinking, but be polite about trying that) I don't know any sites to recommend, but if you google "free-image-hosting" you should find a few usable sites.

Once you've got the image hosted/have permission to hotlink to someone else's image, you need to make your post. To put the picture in, simply insert http://imag_url wherever in your post you want the image to appear. (Be sure to pay attention to line breaks, and it may be best to preview your posts until you're comfortable with how it works)

Also, make sure that "Disable BBCode in this post" is unchecked, or it will come up like it did in my post.

I think it's also possible to use HTML to do the links in this forum, but I haven't used that method myself.
