Hi jjat,

If you are trying to show a screenshot and don't have the fancy graphics programs, use Alt-PrintScrn to get the screenshot and then take it into Paint. Crop it down there and save it as one of the supported file types.

If you already have the picture on disk:

(From the FAQs)

What Are Attachments?
The administrator may allow you to use the attachment feature of this board, which gives you the ability to attach files of certain types to your posts. This could be an image, a text document, a zip file etc. There will be a limit to the file size of any attachments you make, as the board should not be used as an extension of your hard disk!

To attach a file to a new post, simply click the [Browse] button at the bottom of the post composition page, and locate the file that you want to attach from your local hard drive.

Only certain types of files may be attached: these are the valid file extensions for files to be attached to this board: gif jpg png txt zip bmp jpeg.

After posting, the attachment will show up in the body of your message. To view the contents of the attachment (if it is not already displayed) simply click the filename link that appears next to the attachment icon .

you could also just upload the image to your website then click the img button that is in the block that says vB Code and it will pop up a dialog and you type the web address where the picture is.
