Question Posting pictures??

I have a photo of my car but I can't figure out how to include it in my post to the forum....the photo lab included a CD with my film development.....it has a Canon Photo Effects program with it and I can't size the image to fit on my post. Any suggestions to help me out????? By the way, I'm computer illiterate, so please make any suggestions VERY simple.

Thanks John,so if I have this right I have to create a web site to take my pics to?I still have the problem with the images being too large.When I put them on the web site can I make them smaller there or do I do that before I transfer them?I'm a 'point & click' user so all this stuff is a little too deep.Any others have this problem(image sizing not lack of skills),any suggestions would be appreciated.

Well, you don't have to create a web site. Your provider probably has something along the size of 5 Megabites set aside for you to use (to post a web site). Call your provider and verify.

Then using an FTP (file transfer protocol) program you will send your picture to "your" space. The address would look something like /http://www.your_isp.com/~your_log_in_name, then once posted to your space the address will look like /http://www.your_isp.com/~your_log_in_name/file_name.jpg.

Then just plug that address into you post sandwiched between the img and /img (which are inside of the squared brakets [ ] ) and you have pictures.
