  1. To include an image within the text is easy. Open the post box and click on the following image from the menu bar: This will open a pop up box - enter the complete URL for the image - this url can be found by the following. Right click on the selected image and go to properties. This will bring up the image properties. The address can be copied from here, (making sure you select the whole address which will end in the image type, eg .gif or .jpg) and pasted into the address bar. Then click okay and you will see entered into the text the URL of the image you wish to include, surrounded by brackets with an html tag - [img ] and [/img]: when you make the post the selected image will be displayed. Here is my example: The image has been centred by highlighting the bracketed URL and clicking on the centre button. Please think about the following: how big the image is and whether it is suitable to be posted within safaritalk.net. One must also consider copyright issues and should you wish to include an image which is not yours then please seek permission first from the copyright holder. Matt

  18. I have no idea about these companies, but, even if a reasonably small amount, you could always donate it to a reputable Africa wildlife NGO. Also, @Brian's Art for Animals uses Youtube advertising income and donates this to wildlife charities - perhaps Brian can chime in and let you know how he does it? Matt
