  16. Either with the "Manage Attachments" button below the posting window in "Additional Options" or you can use the "Insert Image" wizard button adjacent to the style editing buttons above the posting box.

    The code is such:
    "[​IMG]" (without quotes, of course)
    The image address will be something like: http://homepage.mac.com/elmaestro/.Pictures/Pictures/Lawrence, KS/DSCN6405f.jpg

    There's no way to get them to post side by side so usually I'll meld together a few photos (like the first pic I posted) to make better use of the horizontal space.
