I must be doing something wrong because I am having trouble getting my images on the system. When it comes to computers I'm a dope.
Looks like you are trying to post the image in the subject line. The message you copy after uploading needs to be placed in the body of the post.

Your making 3 mistakes:
1. bitmap (.bmp) files do not work well - use .jpeg format (actually .jpeg is also a bitmap but it is compressed so it loads faster on the web)
2. You have spaces or special characters in your titles. Slashes are especially bad (/) they send the server to another directory or computer and since their is no directory it can't find the image.
3. The line created by WetCanvas upload interface should be pasted in the body of the text not the subject line.

First highlight the wetcanvas text by dragging mouse over with the left button held down. Then click with right button and select copy. In your message, not the title, place cursor on new line then right click and select paste.
With your image, I corrected by first converting to jpg format, then I removed spaces from filename. Best also to size image and keep less than 400 by 400 pixels .
