Welcome to the forum! It can be pretty confusing until you get the hang of things. . . I know there is a way to upload and post pictures through your profile and your 'albums.' But I've always used Photobucket to post images on threads here. If you create a free account with them, you can upload your images, and paste the direct link into any post. I hope this helps somewhat. . . let me know if you need me to be more specific.
