I lost the instructions on how to post photos when my hard drive crapped out last month. Can someone refresh my memory? Thanks!

Bruce--
You will need to put them on your server. Then click on the IMG button above. I think you follow instuctions from there. It will ask you for the url of the photos.

Can they posted from my PC as long as the DSL connection is always on?

If so how do I determine the URL ?

You have to upload them to the web so the pic has an url to fetch. To upload you'll need some type of FTP program. Your ISP usually has a certain amount of space reserved on their FTP server for your own use. AFAIK you cannot use your pc in the way you describe unless it's an FTP server in and of itself. Uploading to your own web site would be another option but IIRC your still going through some sort of FTP server to get pics or an HTML page uploaded.

Just my opinion, I'm far from a computer expert but do have a little experience getting pics uploaded. Utilizing my ISP's free space has always worked well.
