You need to upload the image to a picture sharing website or upload the image as an attachment.

To insert an image that's on your computer:

Click the Go Advanced button below the reply box.
Scroll down to the Additional Options section
Click the Manage Attachments button

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I see from the options in Manage Attachments, one is not limited to uploading to a website. That should make it easy enough, even for me! Glad I opened this one.

Thanks for the pointer -
I tried this and have a sketch done on skitch on my desktop -
when I try to upload it says 'invalid file'
it end with .png - tried reducing the pic image - but can't upload.
maybe skitch is not registering the file reduction -
any help will be welcome - thanks.

Here are instructions:

inline images.png

In order to upload a PNG here, it must be smaller than 1.95MB in size. If it is larger, you must lower the resolution and save the file again before trying to upload it. Or you can save the file as a jpg or something which reduces the file size.

If it has a PNG extension, it must actually have been saved as a PNG file as well - if you save it as one format, then change the extension to something else, it will cause errors.

Keep in mind the part about the filesize, different filetypes have different size limits - any file less than 1MB is fine. Any PNG less than 1.95MB is fine too. Anything too large, or with an incorrect file extension will give you an error.

If you still can't get it, email me the file and I'd like to test uploading it and figure out what the problem is for you: spamisyummy@gmail.com (this is the email address I use publicly, someone has to keep google's spam filters busy)
