I did this before, but forgot how I did it in the past.
I am unable to add pictures to the posts.
When I click on the image icon, it asks for URL. I am trying to upload from my computer.
I tried using the path of the file, it shows X mark on the post, I don't see the image.

the forums provides the ability to link to the image but not to upload it into the forums.
so you need your image to be publicly hosted (lots of free image hosting services for this) so that you can add it to your post as a URL.

Indeed. A much used one, also on other forums, is imgur.com. You could also upload it to your freely available skydrive (you get a free 7Gb space from Microsoft if you have a Windows account) .
