Well, I can tell you what I do and hopefully it will work for you too.  It took me e while to get it all working together, and 'your mileage may vary', but here it is:

My pics start out about 3MB or so from the camera, which I copy to my PC (with Google Picasa).  I do whatever cropping and enhancement at this stage.

I then use Picasa to do the resizing - Export option, set on maximum quality and 740 pixels (so it fits on the screen w/o having to scroll).

Next I upload to Photobucket (using their standard Web interface) - and this is important -  make sure Photobucket is set on "1MB Max File Size" and not the default setting (under upload options).  Otherwise, Photobucket will resize your image again when it uploads leading to very poor quality or small image size.

Typical file size for the Photobucket images is around 500KB.  When posting in the Forum I use the "Insert Image" button above the Message box which puts >img< tags around the Photobucket url... I don't attach the file to my message.

I think I got it all... let me know how it works out!

Cheers,

Mike, yes, you just need a Photobucket account.  You can start with a free account.  Then you upload your pics from your hard drive and simply cut and paste the links from there into the forum.

Oh yeah, I remember the show.  It was sort of the sixties version of Welcome Back Kotter.  But I don't remember Larry Fishburn being in it.  Interesting.  Reg is right: Lulu was HOT!  ;)  Didn't she sing the theme song, or was that Petula Clark?

Laurence Fishburne would have been a little young even to play a student or extra, although a large number of future stars did pass through the school as students. You might be thinking of Lloyd Haynes who played one of the leads.

Of course there was the very cute and always perky Karen Valentine.
