If the pictures were on your PC then you can't post them in the forum...they have to be on a public domain or something like that. Go up to the tab labeled "Forum FAQ" and you can read about posting pics in forums.
I think that is right...I'm still pretty new at this!!!

Yes, you can post pics from your PC, they just need not to be a big file. If they are too big you need to shrink the size for the forum. Thats why some people go to other websites to shrink them. But if you are good with your computer you can even shrink them with a simple program just like paint.
