I do this:

Open post for the thread you are at.
Below the creation box for your posting, scroll down just a bit and find : file name- Browse. Click on the browse and it will open to your files, you may have to go up to select the correct files, which are a general picture file for me, and open that file window. I select and open the file I want and click on teh picture that I called up. you will flash back to your creation screen here, and at least teh first part of the picture name key will be in the browse window. Teh comment window cna be used to add some information about just that picture. Done with that, just button- add the file, and it will open another file name-browse window set. Move up to your lines above, and you can set that file into order, and it will pop up in your creation screen ready to go. If you dont commit it now, it will come out on the bottom of the post with following pics and comments becoming last in first out.

Get on and play a bit, and remember you can edit your final post even after posting , or delete the whole mess, if need be and redo from scratch. It sounds more complex than it is, playing around for a bit will quickly teach you to mind the order, and filing. Pretty much point and click once you get the hang of it, and knowing what to look for.

I am not particularly good at this stuff, and I can only load 4 pics per post. I know others get around this somehow, and post a string of pics, but I dont know that part. 4 is enough for me, as I get windy anyway.
