"Go Advanced" at the bottom of your box, then "Manage Attachments"...
Then Click "+Add Files" to open the Select Files Dialogue box...
Browse for files... Click open... Select additional files... Click open
Wait for upload...
Tick the files I want to show in the File Upload Managerdialogue box in the Attachments section ...
Click the "Insert Attachment" button...
(check to see attachments are inserted by scrolling down and looking under the "Manage Attachments" button)
Press "Submit Reply"
Fairly complex... Imageshack.us is easier (copy the Bulletin Board Link that starts with IMG in square brackets to your post) but please watch the size of your images!

If there is no copyright issues with the picture (check the Wikipedia reference) and you provide a reference then it is *usually* OK. Please always provide a reference if you use or quote someone else's material.
So i can upload pics from Wikipedia?
Edit: Actually - let me check it out first... I've posted pics like this with references in the past - as a member - and have never been called out on it... But, before I jump to the conclusion it is OK, I should consult... :-)

In this thread: Using Other People's Photos jenseits (and ex-moderator and a well respected one) points out: "NO ONE has the right to take someone's work (whether it's written work, photography or any type of creative work) and use it without permission. It doesn't matter whether it's for commercial purposes or not, that's infringement and it's illegal."
Usually a copyright act allows for quotations as long as the matter is not substantial (all the work) and credit is given (or else - how would students write essays and how would researchers write scientific papers). But it seems that photos are a complete work in-and-of themselves - and are subject to copyright law.
So be careful in posting a photo from another source. Check to see if has an open copyright (wiki ones usually do - but sometimes it is "with permission") and if you need permission to post - then get a note from the original source giving you permission to do so....
It seems I am required to "take down" posts with copyrighted images in them...
Now - if the site was hosted in Canada... :-)

This is an image I took with my phone...
Flowers. No big deal, but I could go after you if you saved that image and uploaded it elsewhere. I could also go after you if you simply posted the image elsewhere using my own link. (been there, done that! got it trouble! Wouldn't want another member to end up in the same boat)
Point is, if it's not your photo, then link to the image instead. Such as a direct link to the image itself...
Or a direct link to where the image is
Or another example... direct link to the image
Link to where the image is stored
With that said, you cannot link to an image hosted on another forum or one posted on another forum. Links to other forums is against the rules. I have also sent you a PM (Tator) about this.
