Welcome to the forum.
The other moderators will have my guts for garters for saying this, but you can add up to three photos using the 'Add Attachment' tool at the top right hand corner of the 'Create Post' window. HOWEVER if you do it that way, the photos won't show full size and they won't show at all if viewers haven't logged in to the forum when their browsing, or for people using some types of web browser.
For that reason the moderating team strongly recommends that forum members use Photobucket or similar to post photos. Yes, it takes a little while to figure out how to do it, but once you learn it's pretty easy, and the results are far superior.
There are other advantages of photobucket too. You can store photos there, in different folders and protect all or any of those photos with a password if you wish so that anybody or nobody for that matter can access good quality photos via the web. You don't have to send huge files to clog up your mates inboxes. I have used it say when selling a car and you are limited to photos or get bored waiting for their site to upload good quality photos or they have limits, you can just give the web address in the advert or say to them to contact for more photos and you can give them a password. It is free and easy to sign up, easy to upload and manage them on there and at a minimum you can just put the web adress of the photos with a cut and paste - although with a little more work and using the easy instructions from Don, even i could get great photos into my post!
