    My brother-in-law sends me and other friends and relatives almost daily humorous Emails. Many have pictures in them. I have no problem with a simple copy & paste of just text. But trying to bring them to the forum as a link results in others ending up in my mailbox. When I try to copy & paste a picture to the forum, in the normal way, using the image tab, it tells me it's an invalid domain.

    I would like to bring both the picture and the text that goes with it to the forum. How do I do that?

    Save the image onto your PC, upload it onto an image hosting server, then post the link here. Voila! As for the text, well, copy & paste, I guess

    Cheers

    Orrr... If you can see the whole email, text and picture without scolling you could do a screen shot, take it to a picture edditing program, crop jsut the email, host that and post the whole thing as a picture. Although prolly more complicated but it is Another way of doing it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Sure! But I can't find it. :-\ Got a URL? Or did another mod delete it and not say they did? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] hehe
