    hi Adam
    you could probably find some of my posts on this in a search, but briefly....

    1) just below your text box, click on the Go Advanced button
    2) now further down there's another button Manage Attachments click on it
    3) a small upload window will open, that allows you to browse your puter and open a file
    4) select a file and click on the Upload button in that window
    5) you will see the file name and its file size appear in the window
    6) right click on the file and select Copy Shortcut
    7) close that small window
    8) go back to your text window and place cursor where you want the image to appear in the text
    9) from the icons across the top of the text window, select the Insert Image one
    10) right click in the small text box that appears and paste the shortcut you copied earlier and click OK
    11) the filename and appropriate coding will appear in the main text window and your allocated position


    keep files BELOW 100kb
    keep files to 800x600 or less
    if its a plain circuit diag use a GIF image ....
    even a 640x480 GIF is only a couple of dozen kb

    So Resize and Resample images BEFORE uploading to attain the above limits
    a 800x600 JPG resampled to 80% will only be ~ 50 - 80 kb and will still have good quality

    it sounds a lot but after a few times its easy as and doesnt require much thought :)
