Inserting a chart drawing

The forum offers two ways of inserting a chart drawing into a message.

  1. You can insert an image that is stored on your computer into a message. We allow most of the commonly used image formats (jpg, jpeg, gif, png, pdf) with a size of max. 250 kb. Below the field for writing your message you find the option "Attach". Click on the "Browse" button and select the image you want to insert. If you wish to insert a chart drawing by Astrodienst, you can save it on your computer first (view chart, click into the image with your right mouse button, "Save image as ...").
    Important note: Do not use 'Preview' while inserting a chart. If you click 'Preview' you have to repeat the browse/file selection step. In no case the chart will show in the preview before the posting is completed.

  2. You may also insert a chart drawing directly from the Astrodienst server. To do this, you have to view the chart first, either via "Free Horoscopes" - "Chart drawing, Ascendant" or via "Extended Chart Selection". You can calculate a new chart or view an existing one; the important thing is, however, to view the chart first. Then return to the forum. Now you find below the message field and the "Attach" option a link that says "show available files". If you click on this link, the drawing(s) you have viewed earlier in this session will be listed in a pop-up window and can be inserted directly into your message. Please note that this option is only available if you have viewed a chart drawing before.
