i tried to attach the pictures several times, but they kept saying too large and i don't know how to make them any smaller. i looked at your photos of full tummy tucks to understand how it all is done. it says on there the "belly button stalk" is pulled through and sutured so I guess the part left over after the cord is the stalk of that cord?? when i figure out how to get the picture smaller you will see my doc formed my old bb and then put a hood on top of it and i can feel the stitches in it - feel like they are going to come through at some point. was surprised because my bb had popped out after 3 pregnancies so i thought it would just be kind of pulled back in, but not sure what was done. i always had a flat bb, not an innie or an outie so taking some getting used to - this doc likes innies i think.

I guess I will need to write a page about image posting beyond what I have already answered in posts and gave you links for. The easiest is inserting a link to an image you already have up on the internet as discussed on those posts. There are several sites that permit you to post pictures. The question is protecting you identity and if the images will adhere to their standards if breasts or groin are exposed.
are inserted with

Clicking on first image middle row Insert Image which will surround the image with the image tags. You can see this code by selecting the Quote Button on the top right of the message window.
Almost all image editing software has an option, save for web. These small images do not look good when printing, but they are what you need to put things up on a forum. Typical image size needed depends on what you are trying to show and can vary from 200 to 400 pixels in height to look right. There is also a resize option, but that is more advanced, you first need to get images up there if using our attachment feature. Here are two example programs to see how they do it. iPhoto

The process is similar, you are looking for something under the Restrictions: 4 per post, maximum total size 192KB, maximum individual size 128KB. It also is nice to keep the image size not to overwhelm the screen so that side by side images look good.
The images in this window are 200 pixels high, too small to see the items. The attached images are 400 pixels high after they have been clicked on to enlarge. The third image expands to 400 pixels high but is too wide for the screen and forces you to scroll the image in the window to see the entire image.
Hope this helps,
