Rather abstract -- reminds me of Krazy Kat or another old comic ? Like it, anyway.

Who knew the Futurist was a Colorist ? Vienna had its influence on a number of early Europeans, no ?

i hadn't seen that more 'polished', detailed sant'elia drawing before. starts to look like otto wagner. no wonder they didn't publicize that one more. he was WAY too establishment; that would have been embarrassing. the ones that look like they were dashed off in very little time and with very little detail are much more futurist-appropriate.

le bossman -- I'm sorry -- I don't understand your question.

it was not a question. it was a comment. by saying it is "cash money," it is like saying, "that is cool. and by cool, i mean totally sweet."

yeah they don't once you're on the second page. also JordanS, you can't post an image from your hard drive, it has to be from a website (ie flickr, photobucket, etc)

Post subject: Posting images

In response to requests, here are the steps I take to post photograpic images on this site:

I have an iMac which comes with a utility called iPhoto. I can import images to iPhoto from my camera, from my scanner, or be dragging images from online sources to my Desktop and thence to iPhoto. After manipulating images as desired in iPhoto (straightening, exposure, color, etc) they are exported to Sites or Documents within the computer; the size of the image is selected during this procedure. (Width of 420 or less is desirable to fit on the archinect page; the larger the image the slower will be the upload for viewers of the forum.)

Now I open my Yahoo Small Business Web Hosting utility ($9.95/mo from At&T) -- other web host options are Photobucket, Shutterfly, etc, some of which are free. I select Upload Files and choose the images from my Sites or Documents that I had previously exported. Once these are uploaded to the web hosting site, I can preview them; as I do this the URL (web address) of each image appears in the address window on my computer. It is this URL that I need to post the image on Wright Chat.

Once the URL(s) have appeared in my address window, they are available in the History list, where I can find them to copy (paste) into my Wright Chat post. To make them appear as photos I need to surround each URL with the following: but without spaces.
