What kind of blog? I mean here or is it blogger or something?

Generally you need to have a site to store your photos like Flickr. Flickr is free until you reach a certain number of photos or you buy more storage. I've never had to add any.
http://www.flickr.com/

If you use it you can click on the link in my sig about posting photos and it'll give you info about how to work it which may also work for other sites.

If you click the link in my signature like I suggested previously you'll find all you need to know about posting photos.

You can attach them directly from your computer, BUT you need to resize them first if you do that. Please don't post larger than 800 pixels on the widest side. You can avoid that if you get a free Flickr account since you can select your size before posting. The link is in my previous post.

I don't believe Knitting Help (KH) stores the picture in the forum's database. They store a link to a picture stored elsewhere on the web. This reduces the cost of disk space KH needs to purchase.

To post a picture you first upload the picture to one of the picture sharing sites, such as Flickr or Photobucket or others. These sites will provide you with a URL to the picture and that is used by KH to pull the picture into the posting.

I think they must store some because you can attach photos.
