How do we post an image to the forum? I've figured it out on other forums, but I haven't been able to on this one. Confused

Section 4.2.5 of Guide for New Users of the AEHS Bulletin Board has information on this. There are a couple of problems though. First, be sure to keep your images small and few. Otherwise, you will chap off the people with 28.8 kb comm links (yes, there are still a bunch of them out there).
Second, you can only post pictures that are already on the Internet. No facility currently exists in this version of the bulletin board to upload pictures to the board.
I used the "Img" button to post the following picture from the AEHS Home Page


When the image is large, please surround the link with the "URL" tag, thereby giving the reader a choice of whether to download. Here is a link to the image displayed above using this technique

Another approach if you wish to send one person pictures is to send them a private message and request their email address. Then email them the pictures of interest. If you think the images have general interest, please e-mail them to me and they will be considered for inclusion on the AEHS web site.
