Two ways. From computer or from internet.

Computer:

Click "insert image" button
Click "from computer" tab
Click "select files"
Select your picture
Click "upload file"

Post will go live and picture will not show. It'll only show some attachment link that doesn't work. So to fix this:

Click "edit post"
Delete the picture it shows in the editor
Repeat the upload process from above
Click "save changes"

Post will go live and picture should show now.


From the internet:

Find the picture you want to post and right click it.
Click "copy image address"
Then here, click the "insert image" button
Click the "from URL" tab
Unclick the box to "retrieve remote file, blah blah"
Paste your copied image address into the URL text bar
Click "OK"

Post will go live and picture will show.

I don't have the problem uploading direct from my computer.

There is a max size, so if you get this warning you'll have to reduce the image size.

I use Chrome and Google+ photos. I find I cannot link to a google image and have it appear here. I have to download and post from the computer.

imgur works great. Upload photo to imgur.com. Click on the photo after it uploads, use 'large thumbnail' for size (size info is on the bottom of the menu on the right side of the photo), then click on 'BBCode' (for message boards & forums) then copy the highlighted code.
Come back to your RBR post and click the 'link' button (the little earth w/ chainlink) and paste the code into the box that pops up on your screen.
Super easy.

Problem with Imgur is that some "net nannies" have declared that they contain 'pornography', and block all images.

What usually works for me is clicking on reply > go advanced, scroll down to attachments and upload from computer there. Then click on the insert in line.

If I'm hosting my own images, which are all on Flickr, I just use the "share" button on Flickr to get the actual direct URL for the image, then put that in the body of the post with the {IMG} tags. Using the "insert image" button at the top of the Advanced post editor works well to.

If I'm posting from the web, I right click the image and click "copy image address", then repeat the same process as above using the direct internet URL.

You can also insert images from your smart phone using Tapatalk. Fairly straightforward.

Migen, I love that first pic. So inviting, some railroad grade with significant elevation gains visible. I assume that's in the NW corner of the lower 48, so that's at least a couple of thousand miles from me.

That picture was taken at the Hansen Creek Trestle on the John Wayne Pioneer Trail, which starts at Rattlesnake Lake in North Bend WA, and parallels Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie pass. At Snoqualmie Pass you are treated to a 2 mile long train tunnel. Once you get through to the other side, the trail goes down the east side of the Cascades towards the Idaho border. Technically it goes all the way through, but some parts of it are not really very accessible to recreational riders, as there are no services for several hundred miles between the Columbia River and the far eastern edge of the state.

There are a lot of awesome trails like this in the area. The snoqualmie forest is full of fire and logging roads, and the Snoqualmie Valley Trail runs from Duvall to Rattlesnake Lake. You can literally ride hundreds of miles on rail grade gravel like this and never see the same place twice.

That ride was a 90+ mile out and back starting in Carnation WA, up to the tunnel at Snoqualmie Pass and back down. Here are a few more pictures in my Flickr album.

I try to do that ride 3 or 4 times a year. It's not really rideable once the snow starts falling in winter, and until the trail is cleared of blow downs in spring. Best time to do that ride is between June and mid-october.

Here are a few pictures taken on the Issaquah-Preston rail trail, which intersects with the Snoqualmie Valley trail I mentioned.

Between these gravel trails, and the paved rail trails around the metro area of Seattle and the east side of Lake Washington, I can ride from my front door to the Snoqualmie Pass rail tunnel and back to my house, which is about 160 mles round trip, and never ride on road (once I get out of my neighborhood).

For some reason I am unable to see my picture within the body of my post and I did just what you said.
Did you further edit your post above? Your picture is showing for me.

After clicking on select files you will have to browse to where it is saved on your pc. Once the files are selected an "upload" button will appear next to the "select" (second picture #2). After uploading they should appear in the attachments box at the bottom (see third picture). Alternatively you can select previously uploaded pictures from the home box and drag them down to attachments. To insert inline the checkbox next to the photo in the attachments box needs to be checked. Then hit the insert inline button and it should appear in your post.
