Is it possible to upload images inline in bbPress?

Hi all,

Not sure if this is outside your expertise but I have been looking for a solution to my problem for 3 or 4 days now and quickly running out of options!

I am developing a community/forum for a friend using BuddyPress and bbPress as the forum. It is for car builders, so obviously people will want to be attaching photos of their builds. However, I can't seem to find a way to allow inline uploads. I am at the point now where you can add a image via URL inline, but I would prefer it if it brought up an upload screen so people didn't have to upload to Imgur or something first.

I have recently downloaded the rtmedia plugin which seemed to imply it could do it, however I don't know where to add the uploader via shortcode so that the images show up in the forum post.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
