As far as I know, you still should be able to post images here. The following is an excerpt from the manual for board's software:
Showing images in posts

Adding an image to a post
phpBB BBCode incorporates a tag for including images in your posts. Two very important things to remember when using this tag are: many users do not appreciate lots of images being shown in posts and secondly the image you display must already be available on the internet (it cannot exist only on your computer for example, unless you run a webserver!). To display an image you must surround the URL pointing to the image with tags. For example:

Image

As noted in the URL section above you can wrap an image in a [url][/url] tag if you wish, e.g.

Image

would generate:

Adding attachments into a post
Attachments can now be placed in any part of a post by using the new [attachment=][/attachment] BBCode, if the attachments functionality has been enabled by a board administrator and if you are given the appropriate permissions to create attachments. Within the posting screen is a drop-down box (respectively a button) for placing attachments inline.

Hi mmvt: I have had various success depending on where I link to. For a while, my Flickr site worked well. Then all of a sudden it didn't (my research suggested it was Flickr's issue). It doesn't work well from my SmugMug site either. I eventually set up a blog on WordPress's free blogging site (I never "published" the blog - but it gives me a media upload area) and that works great.

Where are you linking from?
Andy

If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .

thanks Andy-
linking from Smugmug - in past years i did so using the "url" function (copy/paste the "code"from smugmug and add the [url] at front/end of link).The doesn't work this year (from Smugmug). I was finally able to upload the milky way photos using the "BB" code in Smugmug so that's what I'll use this Fall to share VT photos when I am up there.
