Every time I look at this, it makes me feel like I'm in the park again :)

I didn't find a thread for this, but please delete/lock it if I'm wrong.

Here's mine, scaled down by a factor of 2. It's from a visit to Austria 39 years ago this fall.

I have the SDSS shot of M-51 as my desktop, but am unsure of how to post it here. It was my inspiration when researching redshift differentials in apparently-interacting galaxies.

Use the "Insert Image" button just above the reply box and type in the http-location of your image.
Click for instance "Quote" on my post to see how it's done.

Thanks. I was a programmer in the command-line era, and I don't want to blow up someone's forum with an image that is improperly formatted or too big.

I do not think it is too big.
As long as the width is less than about 1000 pixels you should be okay.

Nice Turbo,

Here's mine, I prefer to think of it as: natural subtle complexity... beauty...

All my icons live on my toolbar below the image, where they should be, hehe... others may disagree, but it works for me.

Rhody...

P.S. If you have Windows 7, just use the snipping tool to capture, save as a .jpg file and attach as a thumbnail, piece of cake... it will be under the thumbnail file limit size.

Dave,

Use it all the time when my images are too big, way easier than resizing using some photo program. Just a little trick, now two of us have it.
