Uploading it here or providing a link is fine.  You might want to put a watermark on it to prevent e-theft.

Dip them in water. Just kidding. I am not sure.

Depends on what software you are using.  Scanning it into powerpoint then laying the watermark on it (a transparent graphic of some kind) then cutting and pasting them back to Paint will do it.

It's easier than it sounds.

I highly recommend the use of a free hosting site, and providing links to the pics, thereby saving Thom the bandwidth that he pays for us to use.  That said, the occasional upload is fine.
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Gun Moll says she thinks it's good.  And she's an artist.
