Assume, for a minute, that I had had a folder full of pictures. Assume that I wanted to post a download of it on the site. Is there a relatively simple way, perhaps, that I might go about that?

There sure is. We need to upload them from your computer to the internet.

Step One: Go to a free image hosting site like http://imageshack.us/

Step Two: Hit the "browse" button that's on their main page and navigate to the picture file that you want to upload and select it then hit the "Host It" button back on the imageshack page.

Step Three: It will take you to a page listing various links to the image. You will want to select the, "Direct Link To Image" one. Copy the link it lists there and paste it in between a set of the following tags:

So it'll look like this:

And once you post, it will show up like this:

If you want to put them all up together, so people can download the whole batch instead of one at a time, you should zip them into a .zip file and put it up on one of the many file-sharing sites, like MegaUpload (http://www.megaupload.com/) or Rapidshare (http://rapidshare.com/).
