    When you post, you should have a button (sun over mountain) for inserting an image. Specify the file. You can put it inline (that is, inside the text) or at the bottom.

    It only says "enter the URL of the image" in a different dialog box than the one with the two tabs you showed me in the link. there are no tabs, only an insertion box for the URL
