Image Resizing & Text Wrap-around

Step 1: Insert the image into your message editor (usually with Copy & Paste)


Step 2: Click on the image, which displays "square handles" on the corners, and click & drag to the size you want. It also displays the menu at the bottom.


Step 3: Use the menu to select the options you want:


:sbtinylogo: Alignment allows you make the image flush to the left or right edge of the editor window

:sbtinylogo: Change size displays a menu so you enter the size of the image in pixels

:sbtinylogo: Alt text is the text that will display in a "tooltip". See Step 4 below.

:sbtinylogo: Replace allows you to choose another image.

:sbtinylogo: Remove deletes the image.

Insert link lets you paste a URL to an image on the Net.

Step 4: Enter your text and click the post button when you are ready.


Step 5: Note that the "Alt text" options displays as a tooltip and clicking on the image opens it full size. You might enter "Click to enlarge" as your Alt text.
