Does anyone have clear, concise instructions on how to post a photo of my car. It's tough for us old guys who don't spend much time surfing the web. I have digital photos stored on my hard drive, however I don't understand posting these at a web address. Thanks to all.

Scott,

When I retired from the Air Force some years back, I wanted nothing to do with computers and now look - its like its an extra tool in my toolbox, one I use quite a bit.

At any rate, think of the Internet as the master computer in the world and your home computer as a small satellite to the master computer. The only time you are "hooked" to the master computer is when you dial in and get connected. In order for anything (pictures, information, etc) to viewed by others on a 24 hour a day basis, you need to have it stored on the master computer. That's where web hosting comes in. By sending your pictures over your dialup connection to a computer that stays on and is connected to the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the pictures stayed stored there and can be accessed by anyone connected to the internet. Simply having them on your hard drive does not allow others (like me) to view them. Some places charge for their service (like mine) others a free. Have you checked with your Internet Provider (the company you connect with) and see if they offer web space? Most usually offer 5 to 10 mb of space which is plenty for a novice "poster". Let me know either here or by email and I'll help you out (as one oldie to another!! *G*).

Click the Search link in the blue bar at the top of the window, and enter "picture hosting" in the Words to Search For field.

This will bring up a list of topics explaining how to do it.

Thanks to all for the quick response. As soon as I get some free time, I'll start experimenting.
