    1. where do i find a program to make interactive pictures (mouseover something changes the whole picture to for example another one).
    ideally i want to make an interactive tech tree that is low on kb's and creates a dreaded network of arrows (which displays in which order the GP will research techs) when you mouseover the icon of a great person

    2. where do i upload files like the interactive picture above or just plain jpg's. (preferably directly linking the jpgs) for postage in the startegy article section.

    3. what format do i do normal pictures on? jpeg seems to be quite small enough in kb's.

    made an edit to display a post furher down (kind of double post):
    iv made 6 jpg's files worth 2.8 MB which display 6 tech trees
    the first tech tree shows which techs can be discovered by which kind of great person
    the other 5 tech trees show in which order the great people will discover their techs
    now how would i manage to post this in the article section and be capable of keeping the red X's away for atleast 60 days?

    1: Don't know myself
    2: Press manage attachments under "Additonal Options" when making a new post. There is also an upload file option right at the bottom for big files (over 500KB)
    3. jpegs are probably best, as they are small, get displayed automatically in browsers, and their quality is not much worse than other formats.

    mouseover effects on websites are generally done with javascript - which you can't use in the forum unfortunately.
    another possibility would be flash - but that (swf) is not an allowed format to upload.
    (Valid file extensions: bmp civ4replay civ4savedgame doc dpy gif jpe jpeg jpg net pcx pdf png sav txt zip)

    in short, i don't think you can do mouseovers on the forum :(
