Here are some instructions for marking up one of the photos and sending it to me via email. This will work for people using the following setup:
A recent version of Internet Explorer.
A recent version of Outlook Express.
This isn't necessarily the best way to do this, but it uses tools that most people have. It creates a picture file in the BMP format which results in a rather large file, about 600K. So if you decide to try this, and send it via email using a dial up connection, it may take 4 minutes to send.
Alternatively, you could print the picture, mark it up with a pen, and US Mail it to me. Email me and I'll send you my mailing address.
