To post a picture in a post, you first need to sign up with an image hosting site. I suggest


Photobocket
When you log into Photobucket, you have a box to upload your photo


Note the bottom of this section where you have the option to modify the image size. I recommend a maximum of 640x480 to avoid large images in you post.
When you have uploaded and saved the file, it appears in your album.



The boxes below are links for you to post into various applications. To post on the forum, click the IMG Code. A yellow box will briefly appear which says copied. You can then past this directly into your forum post. It will look like (IMG)http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee216/markbarl/ScreenShot030.jpg(/IMG) except with square brackets round the IMG and /IMG

Also, if you want to get a screen shot to post, you can do this in Windows by either pressing the Print Screen (sometimes the key says PrtScr) button to save the entire screen to the clipboard, or press Alt + Print Screen to save the active window to the clipboard. Once done you can paste in to Paint or any other image editing software and save to your computer for uploading.
