Display a picture in a list in Sharepoint 2010

I've created a custom list in Sharepoint for users to post classified ads, but cannot figure out a way to make it simple for them to post a picture.  I see I can have add a link, but that is not simple for my users.  Anyone know of a simple way for them to add pictures?

Thanks in advance!

If you want a single Image - you can use a workflow.  Users upload picture with their Classified AD number, and a workflow associates the add to the image.  Then it's just a matter of displaying the information at your liesure.

Don't think that can be done straight forward.

You have to create a custom field type which includes an Asset url selector. This allows the user to upload an image to an image library and then select the uploaded image's link.

<SharePoint:AssetUrlSelector AssetUrlTextBoxVisible="true" AssetPickerButtonVisible="true"
                                        ID="browse" runat="server" PickerButtonText="Browse"
                                        AllowExternalUrls="true" />

Is there anyway to allow the user to upload directly from their computer to the ad?  I'm affraid that uploading to the library first is still too technical.

You could then use a normal html file input control and have a logic on your custom field control that will automatically upload the image on an image library and then return back the image's url. But you definently have to upload the image on Sharepoint before using it.

This ofcource will have more effort from your side but will make it easier for your users.

It doesn't really give much details, but it seems that they have a custom web part that inserts data on a list. As long as I know you cannot upload an image directly to a custom list therefore you have to add some logic that first uploads the image on a library and then save the url on your list.
