    Sometimes I receive emails, with thumbnails (I just recently learned this name).
    My question(s):
    What is a thumbnail?
    Why would it be sent as a thumbnail?

    I never can view the thumbnail. Is there a procedure to open?
    Do you have to change any type of setting(s) in order to view thumbnails?

    Many thanks

    To see a larger view of a thumbnail, just click on it.
    To post a thumbnail, scroll down to: Manage Attachment, click on it,
    a window will open, click Browse, select what you want attached, then click Upload.
    The thumbnail will be attached to your message (even though you cannot see it when you click Preview Post.) Then click Submit Reply and you will then see your thumbnail but it has to be under 200 K.
    Hope this helps.

    Thumbnails are just a small form of the pictures concerned.We use thumbnails because people don't like to see the page cluttered with big pictures.

    There is no such special procedures that you have to follow.Just click the thumbnails and you can see those in theirs true colours in a new window.
