Selecting An Image
To upload an image, you must first locate the image located on your local hard drive. You are presented with a text box and two buttons labeled "Browse" and "Upload". To locate an image, begin by clicking the "Browse" button. You will see a dialog box pop up which will allow you to browse your hard drive and locate the image you wish to upload. Some browsers, mainly Netscape, do not display "Files of Type" *.jpg or *.gif files. In this instance, you will not see any image files to select from. To display all available image files on your hard drive, you will need to change the option in the "Files of Type" drop down menu to view "All Files (*.*)". This will display all images available on your hard drive for your to upload.
Once you have selected the image, you will see the path to the image in the text area. An example is as follows:
