Your preference is irrelevant: this isn't a binaries group. Most servers
quietly drop binary attachments in non-binaries groups.
Alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking is the established place for posting
pictures relevant to this group.
In any event, if your server doesn't support binaries, you can't post it here

How come we choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?
Your comment to the second point struck me as odd. "Anyway, I'd rather
post it here." This is a text group and ABPW is the group you should
post the pictures to rather than here. I understand your ISP won't
allow you to post binaries anywhere, but I just wanted to clarify that
ABPW would be the proper place and not here.
Since you don't have a web site and your ISP won't allow you access to
binary groups then it sounds like the best way for you to post photos is
to change one of the above.

Yes, I understand that. I meant that I would rather post the message
here with a link to the photo than post the binary to ABPW.
I thought I had seen some posts here with links to photos that looked
like they were using some other mechanism. Maybe I was mistaken as I
can't find any examples.
PS: Not that it matters, but it's it's the news server, not the ISP,
that won't accept binaries.

I'm puzzled. Are you:
a. Trying to pull my chain?
b. Just having a bad day and a little cranky?
c. A jerk or a troll?
d. Pretending to be stupid and/or illiterate?
e. Genuinely stupid and/or illiterate?
f. None of the above.
You have things you would like to post. You can't do it, but you could
email the photos to one of us who can. With a primary thread on this
newsgroup, you would be able to get the feedback.
Sounds like a reasonable offer to me. ;-) Email them to me and I'll post
them. I have access to two newsservers that accept binaries.
I could find a newsserver that supports binaries, but, as I tried to
explain, I thought I had seen people posting links here and I was just
asking if there was some way to do that without setting up my own
website. I'll sign up with a newsserver that permits binaries and psot
rec.crafts.metalworking has a "drop box" where people can post pictures.
I would like to do the same with my site but I don't know enough to set it
(Don't bother going there, there's no "There" there yet.)
