Although the majority have no problem doing this we do occasionally get asked how to upload images so I thought I'd run through it step by step.
You will need the "Attach Files" option to post pictures. This will be at the bottom of the page if you are starting a new thread as here.

If you are replying to a post, the "Attach Files" option is not revealed by default.
To see it, you must click "More Reply Options".

This will bring up an enhanced input screen with the "Attach Files" option.

The default uploader is Flash based and allows upload of multiple files at the same time.
If Flash is disabled or non functional on your computer, you can switch to a Basic Uploader but it only allows upload of one file at a time.

Clicking "Choose Files" will bring up a standard "File Open" dialogue box.
Select your image and click "Open".

This will upload the image but not yet add it to the post.

To correctly add to the post, place your cursor in the post at the location you want the image to be, then click "Add to Post".

Your image will now be attached.
Anything over 1600x1200 pixels will be reduced to that size automatically so you don't need to resize anything if you don't want to.
Bear in mind however that larger files will take longer to upload.
This is how the whole thing looks for this post.
