When you hit "Reply", there's a white box to type your text there, right?

Well, above the box there is a black row of tools with icons. The second from the right -the one before the last one- is some square thingy with green "mountains" or something. Click it, and a dialog box will appear, where you can type or paste the URL of your image.

You can obtain the URL by right-clicking on your pic and selecting "properties". Copy the full URL (the internet direction to your pic), and paste in the image dialog box above the forum reply text box.

Most image hosting sites off you several options of address to copy. They will all contain the raw URL which will look something like this for image shack hosted pics:

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/xxxx/picname.jpg</pre>

The most common options are:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>HTML[/list]
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre"> &lt;img src="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/xxxx/picname.jpg" /&gt;</pre>
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>UBB Code[/list]
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre"> http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/xxxx/picname.jpg</pre>

In this forum, HTML is disabled however you can paste the UBB code option straight in to your post. Alternately, you can post the raw URL by using the button DuxCorvan described.

And here is an Ubi test site for trying out these kind of things just to see if everything works correctly:
