A quick tutorial on how to post a picture in your thread.

First, you'll need to upload your picture to an online image hosting site. I usually use http://postimage.org/ . Other options include, but are not limited to, Photobucket, Imageshack and Tinypic.

Using Postimage for this example:

Next, you'll see the following screen:

Done! This will create a small thumbnail like below. Then someone can click on it to enlarge it to view the full size image. This helps pages load faster for everyone by frontloading smaller images yet still having access to full resolution for greater detail.

So you had to screencap and upload pictures of how to upload pictures to the site? Sounds like Inception.
Good to know how to do this though.

Yup. My actions have created a rift in the space/time continuum and now I'm trapped in an alternate reality. Farewell!

I clicked on the small image and was flooded with advertisements that opened 5 different websites. You might want to update this.
