Thinking about this, which of course has the germ of a very good idea in 
it, the first thing that comes to mind is to post the picture on the www 
and include the url.  Saves bandwidth, as only those interested have to 
download it.

Then it occurred to me that maybe, since it's not easy for everyone to 
access a place to put a photo (although I suspect it is really easy), AF 
could have an area for "support" photos, ie, a form and format for 
loading up a picture to explain a question better.  It could be 
automatically self-purging like the marketplace, or not, as the powers 
that be see fit.  If the size of the images could be limited by the 
program, it might be fairly bandwidth-efficient, even if the images are 
left up "forever."

I think "Mr. php," Mark Chang, is going to be rather busy for the next 
few days, but perhaps when he's "back" we could ask him about feasibility.

Just my .02 or so...
