    When you're starting a thread or replying to one you have an option underneath the text box (not in Qucik Reply, Advanced options only) with a button called "Manage Attachments". When you click this button a new window will open up. You can hit the "Choose File" button and browse to the picture on your PC then click the "Upload" button...the pic will then upload and attach itself to your post. If uploading this way the picture must be below the file size allowed by Minimins, that will be stated underneath as you can see in my piccy attached. (pic 1)

    The other option is to upload your image to an image host such as tinypic and then paste the url they give you into the text bow below the "browse" button OR directly into your post... either way will work fine. If you post directly into your text you will need to put img tags around your image url [ img] image url here [ /img ] (no spaces), the pic will then display in your post, full size, not as a little thumb underneath.

    If pasting it into the manage attachments section you won't need the img tags as it will display as a thumbnail, so you'll need the bottom option of the 4 in the pic "Direct link for layouts", not the one circled. (pic 2)
