    I don't think it's possible to put photos on RTF, as the name says

    Rich Text Format

    Use OASIS or something similar

    Thank You my friend! You probably do not remember me, but I remember you helping me with a Linux prob in the past. I KNEW it HAD to be something like this! But I'm a hardware guy, (never use openoffice,wordpad etc..)

    Is Oasis something that can be used on Windows? Or.,even better! What Linux program can I use to make this happen for my friend? I use Ubuntu Feisty.
    Thanks!

    Hello again!
    Actually, you CAN paste photos into an .rtf/Wordpad doc. I was just doing it wrong. The correct way is., I opened the .jpeg using Gimp. Right clicked on the pic and selected 'Copy'. Then pasted it into the .rtf file, and it worked.

    Thanks for your help my friend!
