If you have the HubPages App, touch the photo option. That brings up 3 options:
1.) Get From HubPages,
2.) Take Photo
3.) Choose from existing.
I didn't have any existing photos, so I chose #2. Take a Photo.
That gave me the option to:
1.) Post to Forum
2.) Use with Status Update
3.) Use with question
4.) upload to HP
I'd have to play with it some but it seems like you should be able to get a photo directly to your HP account.
But, in the past I have done it the way BizGenGirl suggests.
