Well, you can't upload images directly to the forum if that's what you meant, but you can link to images on other sites.
The most common way to post your own pictures on a forum is this:
1. upload your picture to a free image hosting site (I think I used http://tinypic.com/
, but there are a lot of others)
2. you then get an url of your image, for example: http://i29.tinypic.com/2wfrfap.jpg
3. in your post include the code [img]image_url_here[/img] , and your picture can be viewed (the Img-button above the text-area can help you with this)
I'm not really good at explaining things but I hope that was clear enough =)
