I'm not sure what you mean
Hi Paul. Can you explain more?
Images of visual explanations are not something I remember seeing in thse forums. I have seen images people have placed on a home page web site, and then included a link to the image web site page in a post.
Normally these are images of a problem, although sometimes people like Bob (Proffitt), will include an image of say, a capacitor to show how it bulges when it has burned out.
Is that the sort of thing you mean?
If it is your own images, then you would have to prepare them inside a web page and upload them to your own web site frst, then post the link here like;
Otherwise, I haven't seen any images actually within posts. On other forum sites yes, but not this one.
In addition to what Mark says.
There's no need to make an html-page around the picture. All you've got to do is upload (with ftp or any ISP provided program) the picture (gif, jpg, bmp, png, whatever you like) to your homepage and publish the link. A working example is: http://jc.leisb.org/EK2005.jpg (part of the Dutch delegation to the European youth chess championship, to be exact).
If you don't have a homepage with your ISP, there are numerous site where you can put your 'pictures' online for the whole world to view them. And nobody will check if it's a picture of you or your girlfriend or just an interesting screenprint of a computer problem.
Use google to search for free photo sharing.
I can't recommend any from personal experience, however.
Hope this helps.
Here's a reliable free image storage site I use occasionally
Thanks to all, I willl now experiment . . .
Typos, I sat on my glasses.
(NT) Well thats one way to read suppose....... :)
(NT) Found my (gl)asses
(NT) At least you put gl in front.
I've found a way to do this by taking a snapshot of my desktop using MW3, with the desktop showing the image I want to show. I can re-size and zoom to a part of the image using the program. I then use Image Shack to host the image which gives me a URL address to be included in the post. It just takes an extra click to view it rather than having the image already in the post. That would take up unecessary space anyway.
(NT) Good job, Paul.
