OK, all you members who are going to bash me right away for not finding an old thread with this info on it, save your breath 'er typing. Remember, if you have nothing nice to say...

If its a picture from your pc, go to tinypic or imageshack or another uploading site and upload them there. When the upload is finished it will give you the tags for forums . I highlighted the part you want
