I have tried a couple of times to add a picture with no joy. Even made sure it was really small in size but still won't co-operate. What am I doing wrong?

To misquote Mrs Beeton: First take your picture laugh

Let me check it out, Joanna. I know that Ruth managed it but I need to read up on the "how to do it".
There is also a more advanced editor in this software that I switched off when I installed it. I will let that loose amongst you and see what happens! Need to play with it myself first.

I used photobucket – you need to set up an account with them.  Then when you upload ensure you click the '(more options) under the upload button first and set the size to something appropriate.  This is the 'large' – 640 x 480 size:

to give you an idea.

Once you've uploaded your pic to photobucket you will find that when hovering over it a list of links appear beneath it.  Paste the last one; the 'IMG' link into your post here and voila – photographic loveliness occurs!

Odd - it's come out pixellated - that doesn't normally happen.  Confused

I am just writing a quich How-to guide along the lines of what you have just written Ruth.

Should have sub-contracted it to you!

Embarassed  So long as someone finds it helpful.  The pixellation seems to have sorted itself too, that's good.  Smile
