    Basically, under the main box where you type your message you will see a Browse button. Locate your file, and click Add the file.

    This uploads the picture to our server, and you can then use the "Place Inline" option to put it in the middle of your post. If you don't do this, it shows them at the bottom of the post.

    Depending on the size of the file it may take a while to upload. What size are your pictures?

    Uploads always take longer than downloads!
