the link provides good info on how to do it. Another tip:
When wrting a cache page, I will often attach a photo to a reviewer note before the cache publishes. When the cache is realeased, the reviewer note will be deleted and the photo will disappear from the note along with it but since it is maintained in the database, the link to the photo in your description still works. This gives a less clutered look to the page without all of the photo icons at the bottom which is nice when you have a whole bunch of photos you want to use in the description.

the Knowledge Books are your best bet of finding info, the link is at the bottom of each page in your profile
the writing is nice and clear
and no, it doesn't have to be hosted externally

Other places to stash photos so they are on gc.com and not dependent on an external host:
-- on a log on a cache page which you do not intend to publish
-- on a note log, then delete the log
-- on a regular note on the cache (meaning they can be viewed directly too)
The last can also be a good way to give additional details which are excessive for the description, or things like initial cache contents which are interesting at the time but not ten years later (and you've surely seen old cache pages that still list the initial contents even though the container has been replaced twice). Remember that each log has its own URL, so you can link to it from the description.
