Welcome, Tim :D

As Scimjim says, the “Add Files” button allows you to pick a picture off whichever device you are using at the time. Once selected, wait a few seconds until a button appears “Place Inline” as that is confirmation that your picture has finished uploading. Use that button to insert the picture wherever in your post you want.

Even if you don’t use the “Post Inline” button, the image will appear at the end of your post.
