    Hey Gang--Lessons on Pics.

    O.K. I do believe a lesson or two is in order.

    Michelle Hall (bless her heart) taught me numerous things on how to get pics here in the middle of our posts. So seeing as how I was able to get pics of my "Boobies" here I think it is time to do some sharing.

    1. You have to have the size of your pic just right. Not too big. When you go into your pic file on your computer it should tell you the size of each pic. Mine are 640 X 480. and labeled JPEG-image.

    2.You must get them someplace on the Internet. I went in to http://www.photobucket.com and made me an account and it is FREE.

    3. It let's you browze thru your pics and you can chose what pic you want to get on here. UP-load it to photo-bucket.

    4.On photo-bucket---Click on the pic you want---- to high-light it. Right click on it. Then a dialog long box will come up in the middle of your screen. You then click on that "copy" in that dialog box. Do NOT use the copy up in your "Edit" file on your tool bars.

    5. Minimize that page.

    6. Go into WebMD---hit Discussion to start a post.

    7. Do a title---Get into the part where you would do your posting.

    8. Then go up to your Edit file below the address bar and hit "Paste".

    9. Waaallllaaa--Your Picture should show up in the middle of your posting.

    Mercy, I hope this helps you all. If all else fails might I suggest we all get a FB page and load all our pics that way. For some reason FB is much easier to get pics on there. Then we can put as many pics as we want and come back here to tell everyone the name of our FB account.

    I am praying this helps us all. LOL. I hope I haven't left out a step or two. Give it a try and let me know how it works.

    We need to reduce the stresses in our life. O.K. LOL.

    Prayers, blessings and many hugs.

    Thanks Haylen. I'm not awesome but felt my fellow "Warriors" needed some help in getting pics on here.

    However, as I have solved my problem it seems--- I still can't get any pics that are emailed to me on here. It is beyond frustrating!!!

    I am wondering if those pics are just too big for WebMD. What do you think?? I can't find out on my photo software just how big those pics are.

    So I hope the other members on here don't mind but I am going to keep trying. Once I get a "bee up my patttotie" I can't stand it until I get it worked out.

    Now I know why my engineer son has a mind that will not quit on a problem. Guess the" apple doesn't fall far from the tree". LOL. LOL Most times I get so frustrated with him as he IS the absent-minded professor. LOL.

    So if anyone of you are totally bored with me and want me to quit just let me know. I don't want to take up precious time on getting info out there about breast ca as this is what our board is all about.
