Let me see:
First of all you need a photo less than about 120 kb. Photo editing software, and some email programs can compress or reduce the resolution for photos. Other people somehow put a link to bigger images at Photobucket, etc.

Then I now clicked "attachments" below this text box, and either dragged or found my photo
And then at the end of this sentence, or now
mast step dimensions.jpg
sample image I pinched
which was the "place photo inline"
And that is that. Otherwise you might put the photo at the end of text.
Then you review or submit the post.

I take the photobucket.com option, if you scroll to the bottom of the new account page they have a free option and is what I use. From there, upload the pic, then click the hamburger icon on the pic and click share. The third/bottom link is the one to use for sharing an image here.

I have noticed PhotoBucket watermarked photos appearing . . so PhotoBucket relaxed their "pay up to share" policy.

As an aside, Flickr has changed to a 1000 photo limit for the free service.
