The only image formats that the Bulletin Board Software will support (for an attached image), are .GIF and .JPG
Need to convert images from other file formats into either .GIF or .JPG - this may be done via an image editing application (like Photoshop, etc.).
If you can export the image as a Windows Bitmap (.BMP), or possibly in a .TIF format, the image may be converted to .GIF or .JPG using the Windows Photo Editor application.What format to use???
- Use .GIF for line drawings and non-photo-realistic images.
- Use .JPG for Photographic images.
For text, simply "Copy & Paste" the text inside the message body that contains the image.
Need to first have your image(s) uploaded to some server in Cyberspace. Many options available for this, some better than others.
If needed, contact one of the site's Moderators for further information regarding uploads.
Once the images are set on a server, you can attach the image(s) to a new message body, using the UBB "IMG" tags.
