Attaching Photo's - Upgrade Forum

Can we upgrade the forum to allow for attachments.  It would be nice to show a picture without having to host it externally.

Really, it's not going to happen.  Twice we have hosted our own photos, and twice we have had catastrophic system failure- i.e.- a complete crash.  It took two weeks to retrieve most (some was unable to be retrieved) posts and information that was lost.  Basically, it was a total rebuild of the site (twice).  It is just more prudent, in our case, to host externally.
