I'd like to accompany my question with pictures, how do I do that?

Also, click the help icon, the question mark in the upper right of the "Your Answer" box. It explains many formatting options, including images. –  Frayser Dec 14 '10 at 7:19
    
I don't mind an image as long as it isn't gigantic. Keep 'em small so they fit in with the page nicely. Crop out non-essential stuff so it's only what you want to talk about. I hate opening a question to find something that looks like a poster on the wall. –  Greg Dec 15 '10 at 4:14

The little polaroid icon that is 6th in line right above the answer input text area allows you to put a picture in:

  • Click on the polaroid button (Ctrl-K) to upload images to imgur, both from the web (goes around referrer surprises) or your computer.
    1. Click on the link button (Ctrl-L) to insert a plain boring link to an image:

      [link text][1]
      
    2. Prepend the link with an exclamation point:

      ![link text][1]
      

    You have a direct image link to your URL of choice!

You can also use HTML syntax, eg

<img src="http://sstatic.net/stackoverflowmeta/img/apple-touch-icon.png">

is it possible to set the height and width of these images? HTML syntax or other? –  rlemon Nov 28 '11 at 17:20
