Nope did not work. What I did to get mine to work was pull the pic in to "Paint" program (Windows accessories) and then shrink it down, then save it as a jpeg file. After that, I could drag the new pic to the conversation block that we type in on GWD and TADA! It worked, this way we will never lose pics (like for how to and such).

Worked great.

Yea, I had all mine on the Photobucket, and found out the last 3 weeks it would not let me post anymore.....no 3rd party hosting. Ugh. OK, fine, be that way, lol.

What file formats are supported. I've tried jpg, gif, and jpeg and they all say invalid file types. Also what size should the image be?

JPG, GIF and PNG are supported. It can be any size (it will scale it down to fit) but try not to send 20 MB files to the site! :)
