    I don't have the option "View HTML Source". All I have is "enriched text" or "plain text", and when i select "plain2 I have no further options.

    Hello,
    If you know some basics of the HTML then you can do this easily. You can do this by just editing the HTML that the page contains and rest is jut copy and pasting work. Here it is considered that the image you are interested to insert can be accessed publicly from the server.
    Just follow these steps
    1) Open the browser you use , Firefox or Internet Explorer etc.
    2) Now you have to open the image in your browser.
    3) Just note that, the image that you are going to insert must start with an http:// address.
    4) In this procedure one can not insert the image from the local hard disk.
    5) If you do not just serf on internet and you do not know one the you can take the help of the image hosting services.
    6) If the image you are going to select is large, I mean more resolution, being more precisely larger that 100x100 px. Then it is a good Idea to shrink the size of the image.
