I have been trying to add pictures to questions that I make but for some reason it won't work. Can someone give me an idea of why it won't work, please?

Same here! When I try to click on "Attach Image", it doesn't even have a link, like my cursor doesn't change from an arrow to a finger. Do you have a Mac? I do, and I suspect it's what makes it happen.

You should get a popup box like so (This is done in Firefox on a Mac.)
If you do not see this, please provide me with more information (OS + Browser), and we can look into it.
Of course, another approach is to use Markdown as I did above, where the code is (without spaces)

I browse with Safari. When I click "Attach Image", it treats it the link like a regular bit of text. Will using MarkDown work only for an address, or can it be for a file? And does it automatically display the picture?
We believe that the issue is because you have an old version of Safari, and are fixing the bug. In the meantime, if you want to upload images, please update Safari to version 6 or higher, or use Firefox or Chrome.
Yup, it's a really old Mac, but I can't download Safari past 6. :\
Thanks. We will look into Safari + Mac.
Using markdown will only work for a web address. If you have a file, you can upload it to Imgur, which would happily host your image. As you can see, that's what I did in my example. The picture is automatically displayed. Give it a try!
I do have a Mac, but I actually use my iphone to post problems and get into my account on this website. Plus the picture attachment worked for my most current question so I guess I'm okay, for now.
That was a pretty good question. ;)
