    Here's a neat web site,
    Library of Congress .

    I found this picture there, of the first train into the town I grew up in (That's Rory on the left.)

    This is what I did,

    I scanned the picture to a file then I went into the browser and piced the page from the file and clicked open,when Idid this it went back to the reply page with the file location in the browser windor but when I hit the send reply the only thing that came up was my text but no pic?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    When you save the scanned file, make sure that it's saved in GIF, JPG or PNG format. There is a limit to how big the file can be, but you'll be told if the file is too big after you hit Submit.

    Also, don't do a Preview. It appears to lose your picture when do you that. It doesn't show up in the preview, and the name disappears from the "Attach file" box. Of course, you can re-select the file...

    I hope this helps!
