Thanks for the detailed description and help. As I mentioned in my reply to David, I've actually seen that before on another website. Just didn't realize that was how I'd have to do it here.
Note that it's considerably more mannerly to provide your images as attachments to your message, rather than embedding them within the message itself, particularly if you don't know how to size an image for web delivery. By providing the images as attachments it allows people (particularly those on dial-up connections) to read your message first and then download the images for viewing if they're interested, rather than being forced to download and view the image by the mere act of opening the message.
Being on a slow and unreliable dialup connection myself, I understand your point. But it's been my experience that properly sized images can open pretty quickly, even on dialup connections. Guess the key is, as you indicate, proper sizing. Since I don't have an image hosting server available at this time I guess I'll be attaching photos, at least for the foreseeable future.
