    How ot include a pictue in a posting to the Lounge

    Hey ... I noticed in a number of postings that folks include nice pictures of dialog boxes, etc. to explain their answer ... AND that the associated picture is actually stored on the WOPR site ...

    My question is how do you do that --- a while back I was replying to a post and wanted to include a screen shot of a dialog box (from Outlook) ... and the only way I could figure to include it in my post was to store the associated picture file in a local webserver location that I have acccess to and to include a link to it in my message (via a tag). It worked ... but I'd prefer not having to remember to keep that picture on my local webserver indefinitely.

    Thanks.

    Just create the picture file in a format that the forum software understands (like .JPG), and attach the file to the message (100K Max Size). If the forum software knows the graphic file type, it will display the picture at the end of the message.

    That's right. A file with any of the following extensions will be displayed at the foot of the post:

    You don't need me to do that. You can do it yourself. Have a go - it's easy.

    Eileen,

    Is there a chance you could edit my post (#86236) to delete the tag that points to the picture file I mentioned originally ... and include the attached file instead (which is the same picture)?

    Thanks.

    Thanks Eileen --- I went ahead and edited my original posting/reply to include the attachment ... and deleted the attachment from this thread (to reduce the overhead on the site).
