First, you have to paste the following code in your functions.php file, in order to create the shortcode.

function sc_postimage($atts, $content = null) {
"size" => 'thumbnail',
"float" => 'none'
), $atts));
$images =& get_children( 'post_type=attachment&post_mime_type=image&post_parent=' . get_the_id() );
foreach( $images as $imageID => $imagePost )
$fullimage = wp_get_attachment_image($imageID, $size, false);
$imagedata = wp_get_attachment_image_src($imageID, $size, false);
$width = ($imagedata[1]+2);
$height = ($imagedata[2]+2);
return '<div class="postimage" style="width: '.$width.'px; height: '.$height.'px; float: '.$float.';">'.$fullimage.'</div>';
add_shortcode("postimage", "sc_postimage");
