Just when I think I've got it, I don't!!! I feel like I'm letting my new baby down by keeping her hidden away in the garage...

I find that my pix are best viewed on this site if I keep the width around 525 pixels and the height less than 425. If I make them any larger they are not viewable without scrolling.

I also increase the sharpness and color saturation a tiny bit to again improve the look on a monitor.

Once I am satisfied with my pictures I open a new post and follow the instructions just below the "Message" area that says "Post an Image URL". It is very easy if you just follow the instructions after you click on the "click here".
what's the tag for inline image insertion, multiple pics in msg?Spunout

(img src="url_for_image.jpg") -- use as many times as you need in a single posting. Oh, and replace the brackets () with <>.

Here is an example of the minimal html code needed to reference an image located on another server; this is an image itself -- otherwise you'd not see the code:

There can be lots of other attributes of the image, like size, shape, etc.; I find it better to strip out all that when posting here.

If you are referncing a photo on someone else's server, you'll need to figure out the actual path to that image; the code may only show the relative directory path (like .../subdirectory/image1.jpg); on some servers, file names are case sensitive, too; it may take a few times to get it right.
