Images will need to have data and line pointers added directly within MaximDL (or Paint Shop Pro if prefered) before being uploaded to the wiki. In addition, the image will need to be saved as a jpeg.
The following procedure is for MaxIm DL.
  1. Open the image in MaxIm DL
  2. C‚Äčlick on 'Edit' on the top tool bar
  3. Click 'Annotate'
  4. Add in text and line pointers as required (right click over anything added to remove)
  5. Click on 'File' on the top tool bar and then 'Save As'. A new box will appear.
  6. Click on 'File Filter' and select to save as a JPEG Images (*.jpg, *jpeg)
  7. Ensure the 'Auto Stretch' check box is ticked before saving
  8. Save in the folder were the original fits file came from
  9. Check the saved file by opening to ensure that the image is ok and all data is correct.
  10. Create a new wiki page, upload to the image and add the image in to that page
  11. Cut and paste the url of the page into the email to be sent

NOTE: Paint Shop Pro may be used and is more suitable for larger format images.
