When you create your reply, click on the Go Advanced button. When you do, the screen will change. You will enter your reply in the Message: edit box within the Reply to Thread section of the page. Below that is the Additional Options section, that contains the Manage Attachements button. When you click on that button, a new window appears. At the top of that new wundow is the Upload File from your Computer group. In that group, you click on the Browse... button. When you click on that button, a typical File Open... dialog box appears, allowing you to navigate through the folder structure of your hard disk so you can select the file you want to upload. Once you've selected the file, you click on the Open button. The File Open... dialog box will disappear, and the filename of the file you want to upload will appear in the edit box in the Upload File from your Computer group. Click on the Upload button, and the name of the file will appear in the Current Attachements list. Once you've selected all the files you want to upload, click on Close this Window, and you'll be back to your reply. Continue as you would normally, editting your reply as usual, and when you click on the Submit Reply button, your reply will appear in the topic, along with your attachements.

There are some things you need to be aware of, however. Steve's limits the filesize of any individual attachement to 253.9 KB (for most file types). Also, the size of the image can't be any larger than 1024x1024, and should probably be a little smaller, so people don't need to scroll around to see all of your image. Any image editting application can reduce the size of an image, so that it will comply with those requirements.
