As far as I can tell, Tut, you do have to have it somewhere on the net to upload it to the site. I use photobucket and picassa for photos online. picassa is the easiest to use.

I have never heard of picassa. I do use photobucket if I really want to post an image, and it does pick it up from my window. But it is a lot of trouble so I don't do it often.

Tell me more about picassa...

You can always do what I do. If the picture I want to use is on my hard drive only, I first load it to my personal web space. It isn't something that your ISP talks a lot about but with most internet accounts you are allocated a certain amount space on their server. In my case it is 10MB per mail account. With judicious use this can go a long way. Most ISPs provide "web tools" that are pretty much self explanatory. Once the picture is uploaded it is a simple matter of copying the url where the picture is located.

This is how I do my signature. Rather than changing my sig at all the sites I use, I merely change the picture in my web space and the signature is changed everywhere. The url for my banner is http://members.cox.net/aproudliberal/banner.jpg .
