thank you Karen!! I do want to post pictures but when I try to do it, I get an error message saying "this file is too big." I don't know how to reduce the actual size of the photo so as to upload it. Do you perhaps know how I can do this?.....

I found a program on my computer called Microsoft Office Picture Manager that allows me to resize a photo and save a copy of it (so that I don't lose the original quality).

I use the new insert image feature on the toolbar above the message box, which lets you insert the image small, medium, large, or full size. It's one of the things I actually like from the upgrade. I usually choose medium size. If you were doing it the old way, give this a try.
