Hi

I am a bit mystified!

How do I insert an image into a posting?

I click the box marked 'Img' then what ?

Simple terms only please .... I am not a rocket scientist.

Images must already be uploaded elsewhere first, then you include them here by using a link to them.

I suggest you create an account at http://photobucket.com
Then you can upload all the images you want, and it tells you what text you need to include in forums like this to reference them.

Great but a bit large .... but shows the quality of the joints.

Will have another go.

I wish to discuss this model later

It's the same size as the image was on your computer to start with. Do you have software for resizing images first?

If you copy the text required from photobucket, you don't need to also click the Img button (it already includes the [IMG] tags).

Squeaky!

There are many packages for manipulating images - I find Irfanview to be excellent.

That torus looks wonderful...

Image Sizes

Thanks for the information.

I use Photoshop CS2 which I find excellent. It is quite a complicated programme but more or less a 'standard' in the photographic world.
I am now reducing the image sizes prior to sending to 'Photobucket'.
