Dear Arno,

I just requested Elisabeth to post the pictures on the body of the post. Thank you for doing that. How did you do it?

There are other pictures also. Perhaps, you can add more! That would add to the knowledge of new users.

Regards,

Hi FH
To add graphics or photos you need to have them as JPG or PNG files on your hard disk. TIFs should work as well. Just below where you write your message on the Forum is a function to add attachments. Click "ADD FILE" and you then go to your desktop or wherever you have the graphic and then click on that file. Place the cursor in the message text where you want to install the graphic/photo. Then click on "INSERT" button. You are then done. :cheer:

Dear Arno,

That is great, but my pictures were not in jpg format. They were pasted in MSWord document.
How you converted them to jpg format?

Re: Night-Soil Bucket System of Singapore: What Triggered the Change?

To convert the photos that are in the Word doc into separate jpg files you have to:
  1. Select the photo by clicking on it once with the left mouse button; then
  2. Right-click on the photo and select “save as” from the menu options that will appear next to the photo.
  3. Then you can save them one by one as a jpg file.
  4. Once you have them as a jpg file you can click on “add file” and then on “insert” which is the button to the right of “add file” (as Arno described above).

Hope it works for you now?
Good luck. :-)
