There has been a hand full of people that have had a hard time when posting directly to a thread with a photo. I have not had this problem but I know it HAS happened.
That said: it won't happen if you use a link instead.  For example, put your picture on a flickr account and post the link in your thread and it will work like a champ.
It works this way:
Upload your photo(s) to a flickr (or similar) account.
View your photo and Right Click on the image and one of the choices will be "Copy Image Address". 
Then come back here and click on that little Mona Lisa icon (which, when you hover over it-it says Insert Image.
Paste your link you copied into those IMG marks.
Hit preview to see the results but it should work perfectly.

Oh....and welcome to the forums!
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?
