How to post pictures for newbies and older members that won't conform!


If you would like to upload a photograph to go with your post follow the steps below and you will be able to upload a thumbnail that when clicked on will become full size.
Using your photo editing software (if you don't have any then Picasa 3 can be downloaded free of charge from here ) you will need to re-size your picture, it must be no bigger than 1024 x 1024 pixels and then saved to below 250kb.
When replying to a post if you click on 'Go Advanced' this will take you to a new page where there is a large reply box and more function buttons, (when starting your own thread you will automatically be in the advanced window) on the top line next to a smiley icon you will see a paper clip icon, click it and it will open a new window where you can download your images, alternatively there is a 'Manage Attachments' button halfway down the reply box page, they both take you to the same place.
When in the Manage Attachments window if you click 'Browse' you will be taken to your pictures on your computer, click on the picture you would like to upload and it will be placed in the box next to the 'Browse' button, continue doing this until you have placed all pictures needed in the boxes then click 'Upload'.
When your pictures have loaded you can close the Attachment window and view your post by pressing the 'Preview Post' button, if you are happy with the way it all looks then you can post it.....if not, scroll down to 'Manage Attachments' button and click, this will open up the uploading window which will have all images that have been loaded underneath, you can then remove your pictures if you wish.
Hope this has helped, I know it can be daunting trying to find your way around a forum but you'll soon get used to it!
