I feel compelled to write this because I feel like the idiot of the century.
What I wanted was to be able to upload certain pictures to go into my posts. After downloading and installing Coppermine, ComFetch, Copperminesc, I found I didn't need any of them. All is included in WordPress. All you hve to do is upload them. So, while you're in the editing page, look below that and you'll see Upload written loud and clear. Browse, click on your picture, upload and you get a new window with the picture and a list of choices.
It couldn't have been easier.
