Adding images to your posts

Your posts look more interesting if you add images to them.   Here's how to do it.


First, you need to save the image as a file on your computer.   If the image you want to use is on a web site or in a web-based email reader such as gmail, right-click the image and choose "Save Image As".   Remember the file name.  :-)

If your image is from your camera or elsewhere, please consider storing it in jpg, png or another compressed format, not bmp.  bmp files are larger and therefore make your web page slower to load.
