    Feeling stupid. How do you post a graphic?

      First off, questions like this go down better in the tech support area (down at the bottom).  That said, here's the deal... RA doesn't suck in pics like RWOL and pat your bottom. In return, you can link already-on-the-internet pics mo easy here, by far.

       

      To link an existing pic... get the url of the pic, and paste it into the appropriate box that will appear when you punch the little button/icon that looks like a tree in the editor.  The important point is that the target MUST be a picture... gif, jpeg, png... and not an html page with a pic on it.  And sometimes it still won't work if the target site has protected their images.

       

      If you have a pic on your PC that you want to post, you can use one of a bazillion free image sites and then do what I wrote in the previous paragraph.

       

      I suggest http://tinypic.com because it is free, it doesn't require an account, it'll resize pics for you (choose "message board" or "website"), and yeah, it is free.  When you load a pic there, it'll present you with a variety of pre-formatted options with embedded urls.  Use the LAST one, which is the basic native url.

       

      Also, cutting and pasting sometimes works, but you will have to play with that.

        Worked like a charm.
