In another post, this question of multiple pictures attached to a post was asked, and the OP wondered how to add more than just the original 5 pictures.
I have copied what I wrote, in order to help add to the knowledge base, and to fill any gaps.

In the advanced editor(also the same interface you get when starting a new post), using the manage attachments panel, you can attach up to 20 images.

After each set of 5 pictures, just hit upload, and after a few seconds you will see those first 5 pictures in a list below the area where you just added those 5 images.

In the images below, you can see the process, even if you happen to close the attachment window, you can still open it, and keep adding up to 20 images.

I didn't upload the images I used in the example, only the screen shots of the window to show the steps.

If you have any questions about this or any other image uploading question, I will be happy help out.

And note that in the examples Rick posted above, there is an "Attachment Key" below which lists all the allowed types of file attachments allowed, along with their file sizes and dimensions (where applicable) So it is easy to check this when loading.

If your files are too large they will just "hang" when loading.

I've always felt a tiny bit guilty about uploading my pictures to the forum and taking up server space, although I always resize them and lower the resolution first, to help with file size and load times. I post a lot of pics in my build threads.

So I've recently made the switch to 3rd party hosting (Imgur) which I really like because the "thumbnails" shown using this posting method are actually a lot larger, meaning people don't even have to click them to get a better look at the pictures.

The finished build pictures in my Scud thread (link below) were hosted on Imgur, while all the pics during the build were hosted on the forum. I still resized them first, to help with load times, I'm in the same boat as Kevin, if pics take too long to load I get impatient and move on.
