    How do you place a jpeg in a post that shows up in the post as an embedded photo and not as a downloadable attachment?

    I do it by using HTML tags - for example:

    <xmp><img src=http://www.davelog.com/gfx/rig.jpg></xmp>

    gives you this:

    <img src=http://www.davelog.com/gfx/rig.jpg>

    Upload it, then copy the location of the picture, then click edit and use the img tag.

    attach the pic to your post
    hit the reply button
    open the attachment in a new window
    copy the new url of that window
    edit your post and add that url in img tags
    voila, the pic now appears in your post

    Actually, my wife made that (back before she was my wife - I had her tie-dye a set of sheets for me as an elaborate ploy to get her in the sack*), it's just a regular white cotton sheet, and she used watered-down fabric paint and vegetable dyes. When my Sunn developed a quarter-sized hole in the grille, I just covered the whole grille assembly with the sheet and stapled it down on the back. You can see the precision cutting and fastening work at http://www.davelog.com/gfx/sunn.jpg .
