Images are handled in a variety of different ways depending on the situation. The most straight forward is the inline image which can be inserted anywhere within a document by using a code in the form: {*?}[relative/path/filename.ext] several examples of which are shown below.

If you use this form you must have your image scanned at an appropriate resolution (try 72 dpi for a normal photo) which will display the way you want it. You can check how they will display by simply looking at them with your browser.

If you have a bunch of images at an inappropriate scale (too big) try: ALCHEMY a shareware product supplied with CARTHTML.
To convert every image in a directory to GIF format with a width of 800 pixels you would use the command:
ALCHEMY -g -o -+ -X800
Help with the options can be found by typing: ALCHEMY

If you find image placement confusing you are not alone. Placement and alignment options often do the unexpected as the final layout of the page is dependent on a lot of different options over which you have no control such as the viewer's monitor size and resolution, font preferences and the vagaries of their browser. Your job is to make the document at least legible and hopefully easy to read. In this simplicity is the key.

The most straight forward option is the inline image which can be inserted anywhere within a document by using the code {*-}[relative/path/filename.ext] this form also provides the highest quality image.
However it quickly becomes more complicated when you try and fancy it up. Compare the above with with: {*L}[relative/path/filename.ext] which puts the image on the Left with text to the Right and {*R}[relative/path/filename.ext] which puts the image on the Right with text to the Left.

A little easier to control but usually causing a reduction in image quality are: {*1}[relative/path/filename.ext] which creates an image one tenth the width of the window that houses it with image on the left and text following to the right, {*2}[relative/path/filename.ext] which creates an image 20% as wide as the window all the way up to {*0}[relative/path/filename.ext] which adjusts the image to fill the available space. (and everything in between in 10% increments)

Make sure you have enough text before the next image or file change to use up the space or you'll encounter something like the cluttered mess: txt\image-1a.txt or, if you put them in a liist it might come out like: txt\image-1b.lst

Both of these examples were created with code that looks like this: txt\image-1c.pre

For instance the following mess is bad enough but it comes out even worse when identified as a list. (Both were created with the code below).

This image was taken with a 640x480 resolution CCD camera and is the source file for the rectified image above.

This is just to show what happens when you specify a .TIF file. It makes more sense to convert your images before hand unless the come from some unflexible source like ASR.
