I thought computers were meant to make life easier :roll: Sounds a bit fangled to me but I might give it a try at some point...

It was only that I came across a Serge Gainsborough LP in my shop the other day and the cover was a dead ringer for Since There Were Circles. I think it was from the late seventies. Bob was clearly influential in cover art as well as musically ! 8)

Thanks for all the technical info Grant.

Not really. To display a picture, you would need to link to it -- it'd have to be hosted elsewhere.

So, in practical terms, you'd have to take yer picture file (a .jpg or .gif, in all likelihood) and upload it to somewhere like http://www.flickr.com.

Then, once uploaded, you'd have to get its address (right-click on the image, "copy image address" or, if not that, then "view properties," highlight&copy the URL).

Once that's gotten, you'd stick it on here like so:

Code:
[img]http://www.hostingsite.com/images/mypicturefile.jpg[/img]


It's not actually loaded up here, just displayed on here through a link.

That make sense?

Oh, and one other thing -- this bulletin board software doesn't let you resize images, so make sure whatever file you link to isn't too huge, otherwise it'll make the topic unreadable -- all the text will fall off the right margin, fitting the width of the image.

Oh, oh, and two other thing -- sometimes, the software won't recognize addresses that have colons and other strange characters in them. That shouldn't happen with flickr, but if you're using Google Image searches, that won't work.
