How to add images into Random image appearing at the left column of iMechanica?

A few days ago, Xi Chen uploaded two pictures of Raymond D. Mindlin in one post. I was expecting to see the pictures (at least one of them) showing up at the left column as random image. However, it has yet to happen. So I am asking: how do we add images into the list of random images?

Rui, I tried to add the color photo of Mindlin, through the "add image" link at the bottom of the page. I created a new post this way. After I clicked the random image for over 100 times, it finally appeared under the random image in the left column...

There is an old post with more details on how to add image to your post or to the leftside of iMechanica.

Update:  I've just updated the post.  Rui and Xi, please feel free to modify the post.

Simplifed version of Zhigang's post on how to add image:

First way, add an image through hyperlinking to an image existing somewhere else on internet. This is the way Xi added the two Midlin's images in his post. Both images are stored on columbia university server. Image added by this way won't appear in the random image.

Second way, upload the image from your computer to iMechanica server. In fact, random image is chosen from a pool of images uploaded to iMechanica.
