I need Photo Posting for Dummies

I have done it before, and would like to do it again. I mean posting a photo. How does one do it? It is a jpeg 36k big.I use the browse tab, pick the photo, then go to preview and nothing.

Thanks for the Help

Henry

The photo/graphic that you are trying to display within a message has to be "hosted" on the internet, via an FTP site or an exiting web page. In other words, the image has to have a URL address. Mercedesshop does not copy it from your hard drive to "host" it.

Mercedesshop does host images up to 64k in size. So your image will be fine. However, it does not show up in preview mode. You just have to take a leap of faith and submit the post. If something goes wrong, you can always delete the post later by pressing the edit button. When the edit screen comes up you check the delete box and then press the delete button.

And when the image is hosted on Mercedesshop it looks like this:

Your tip that it does not show up on the preview page did the trick. Thanks
