For anyone who wants to embed a graphic (such as a chromatogram) in a post, here's the procedure.

1. Convert your chromatogram to an image.

2. Resize it so that it's not too large (I would suggest no more than about 400 x 400 pixels) and save it in one of the following three formats: .jpg, .gif, or .png

3. Upload the image to a web server or hosting site which is accessible via the internet. There are lots of free image hosting services kicking around. I have been using tinypic.com for years, but they have shut down. One that I have just tried (see the pic below) is:

4. Type the URL into your message, highlight it, and click on the "Img" button. (If you use ImgBB you can simply copy the "IMG" from there after you have uploaded the image).

5. When you preview your message, the result should look like this pic of my dog, Socks:

Note: Chromatography Forum has no connection or relationship with ImgBB; I just happened to stumble on their site, it seems to work, and doesn't seem to be too irritating with ads.

And now, back to our regular programming.

how do you resize the image?
Assuming you are using Microsoft Windows, open up the "paint" program (it's a standard part of Windows), click on the "help" command or icon and enter "resize" in the search box.

The details will vary a bit depending on which version of Windows you are using.

Or if you have Microsoft Office installed on your computer then there is a small program called Microsoft Office Picture Manager which can help you resize the picture as well. It's very user friendly and has many different options. Just saying :) I prefer PM to Paint.
