When you added your post there should have been a tool bar. In the tool bar was a pic of a mountain. If you hold your cursor over it "Insert/Edit Image" pops up. Click on that and paste the link to your pic on the url line.

If you are using Winders XP, see this topic:

http://www.mylargescale.com/Community/Forums/tabid/56/view/topic/forumid/15/postid/12210/ptarget/12595/Default.aspx#12595

Toward the end there is a recommendation for using MIcrosoft's RESIZER tool that you can get from MS.  (I don't know if there is another tool for other versions of winders)

I now use it and I like it.  I also just found out that it will do multiple files all at once.  I just highlight all the image files you want to resize and then select the tool from the context menu and away it goes, doing all the files.  Of course, it does them one at a time, so it make take a while, but I can do other things (a bit slower sometimes) while it is occuring in the background..

Nice thing about this tool is that once installed you see it as part of Windows. You don't have to remember "where" it is on the disk, it is part of the context menu that you get when you right click a file name. The real frustration occurs when you get a new computer or go use someone else's and it is not there!

"What goin' on 'ere?! Where's that menu entry for shrinken' files? It used to work! I'm sure it did!"

Oh. In the signature, I had to put HTML code...

You're trying to link to a file on your hard disk, not on your web server.

I used html code like this:



To get this.
