After pressing the "enter an image" button what do I enter? I tried copying a picture from my documents and pasting it but that doesn't work. Am I supposed to enter a link address?

Is there no way to simply attach a picture from my computer to a post directly?

After "Enter and Image" you should see a pop-up that asks you to enter a URL for the image you wish to display.. I.E. you have to have the picture on some other web site.

If you want to just upload a picture - i.e. one that is only on your computer, and not on an external web site, look at the two special categories - "Trip Reports with Photos" and "Favorite Photos" - I have a post in there which describes how to upload pictures from your computer to those two areas - which will acccept them.

Pictures take a lot of room (hence space and cost) which is why we don't support uploading them to every single forum.
