Maximum file size is 100K for images.
It has occasionally come up that folks don't know how to upload pictures or other types of file to the forum.
First of all, at the bottom of each thread is a "Quick Reply" box. I use that box a lot because it's, well, quick.
But you can't use that box to upload files or pictures. So if you're in quick edit mode, you need to press the "Preview Post" button, which will put you in full edit mode.
Once in full edit mode, at the bottom you'll see a "Browse" button and an "Add Attachment" button. Use "Browse" to find the file you want on your computer, and once it's selected, press the "Add Attachment" button to upload it to the forum. This can be any type of file, not just pictures. At this point the file name will appear at the bottom of your post, and if other users click on that link, they will be able to download your file. The following image shows the buttons that you use to upload your file.
Finally, for photos that you want to appear in your post full sized, you have an additional step: First preview your post, and find the link to your newly uploaded image file. Right click on it and choose "Copy link location" from the right click menu (I use Firefox, and other browsers may word it a bit differently). But you want to copy the url of the link to your image. Then in your full edit window, paste the link surrounded by image tags. The following is the code used to display the picture in this post:
All you are doing is putting image tags around your copied link. Note, that there is a little image button at the top of the full edit box that will automate this process. Now if you preview your post again, you should see the image displayed full size.
A couple of final notes: There's a limit to how many file attachments you can put in a single post, so if you need to post more images or files, then you'll need to split them into consecutive posts. There's also a limit to how much total file and image space each user uses for all of their posts on the forum. The purpose of this is to prevent malicious users from filling my web server's hard disk. But if users on the forum need to increase their quota, just PM me, and I will do this for you.
(10 Jun 2010 Edit) I've taken some links to some image resizing programs that were posted by forum members here for your convenience:

Post any questions you have about this process in this thread. I will use those questions to improve these instructions.
