The post tried to put in the picture, which I just made up as an example, so it's not there. Scroll down to the comments section in the original post to see the HTML code.
i>: AOL provides a place on the internet to upload pictures. Go to keyword MY PLACE and follow the directions. Upload your file and note the internet address. Then type in the HTML code when you post a message on this board. In my case, it would be where picname is the name of the file you uploaded. I'm pretty sure you should not use the file extension in the name. Again, make sure it is a jpeg file. Try it on the test board when you get it uploaded. email me or post a message if you need more help.
: : : I found that the JPEG file extension works best. I never tried a tiff file, but I did try a .bmp file, which did not work. Did you do a search for space to upload the files ? Who's your ISP, ie , who do you get your internet service from ?

: : I'm sure AOL provides a place to upload photos, but its sure not intuitive. This has got to be a lot more complex than I thought. I figured I could just cut and paste with the clipboard.
: : Anyway, it was sunny and warm here in Central Illinois today and I've there's nothing like a brisk top down jaunt in a Z to make you forget your cares.
