How can I code in Excel VBA for a picture to be emailed?

In Excel, I have written a macro that creates an email (pre-populated with the person in the "To" field, the "BCC" field, the "Subject" field, and some simple text in the message body area).

However, I do not know how to get a picture pre-populated into the message body area.

Any ideas?

Of course you can't do it in a plain text email. So you'll be using .HTMLBODY not .Body. Something like this should work. It will embed when it sends.
.HTMLBODY = "<HTML><Head></Head><Body>Text goes here.<br><img SRC=C:\ImagePath\Imagename.jpg><br>More text here.</Body></HTML>"

If you are planning to insert a chart as picture and you are using Outlook you may try the link below:

I also got the code below which might can be useful to you (source: http://www.codeforexcelandoutlook.com/excel-vba/send-email-from-excel/)
.HTMLBody = "<BODY><FONT face=Arial color=#000080 size=2></FONT>" & _
            "<IMG alt='' hspace=0 src='cid:EmailTemp.gif' align=baseline 0rder=0>&nbsp;" & _
            "<br><br>Plus add any text you want</BODY>"
