What format or program are you using for these images? Is it possible to use TIF, JPG, or some graphic program?

Perhaps the location, i.e., on eBay seller chinastamplex8, etc. or item number?

attachments versus viewable graphics

I believe that only gifs and jpgs will be viewable. All other types of graphics will show as attachments that you must click on

Ironically, I believe these ARE jpg files...they just don't have the extension in the name due to a screw-up on my part.

Please beat yourself about the head and shoulders

A little database manipulation and the images are there! Viola!

I changed the name of the images to include the *.jpg extension. I know - pure genius..........
