Trying to post directly to Usenet will not work for you.
Your news provider--Eternal September--will not do "binary", which is what
pictures are. Eternal September will only do "text" (letters and numbers).
As others have pointed out, you need to sign up with one of those free
photo-hosting sites, then include the link to that site here.
The link you eventually post to Usenet will look something like this:

That's not true for all providers.
Some providers don't care if the group is meant for text only; if your
/account/ allows binary, you'll be able to post pictures to any group you
like. It's under those circumstances that you'll see annoyed replies from
people telling a miscreant not to post binaries to a text-only group.
It's pretty foolish to post binaries to a text only group, because
MOST newservers will strip them out, and usually the post itself will
not be propagated. In other words, post a picture here, and almost no
one will see it or your post. Self defeating.
