I have looked in FAQ and the answer seems daunting.

Howabout I send separate emails with them attached as per usual and some tekkie can turn it all into a new forum post?

John - it's really easy - if I can do it anybody can!

What you have to do is obviously have the photos on your computer. Next step is to join up with somewhere like 'Photobucket' (or any free image holding site)

You then upload your photos onto that site and then transfer them to the forum.

Why not have a play around with Photobucket and see how you get on and once you get the knack, you'll be sorted.

When your photos appear on the 'holding site', e.g. Photobucket, there will be 4 options beneath your photo, all you have to do is click on the bit that says 'IMG Code' (the 4th box). A wee yellow box will appear which says 'Copied', you then right click on the box which has the text beginning [IMGhtp://i60 etc.], right button click on that and that is then just like a normal copy and paste.

Make your post as you would normally and when you want to add a photo, just follow the above instructions and paste the bit you've copied.

If you then preview your post, you should see your photo - if you don't - you might possibly have clicked the wrong box on Photobucket, so delete what you've added and have another go till you see what you're trying to achieve.

Clear as mud? I'm not very good at explaining it am I? Can you tell I don't have a clue about technical jargon?

Good Luck - I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in no time.

Anne

If you still have problems -just yell!

It sounds hard but it's just like learning to ride a bike ! Confused

Well done, Anne, you're a star.

Just done one and it works (Crianlarich, Perthshire)
