Ok Pete, I don't know if my instructions were that good but since you seem to think so I'll post them for all to see.
Happy to help with getting pictures online. Here is how I do it.
First you need a picture hosting site. I use www.photobucket.com
They are free and relatively easy to use. It takes a little trial and error to start but once you have done it its pretty easy.
Down load your pictures, you can do one at a time or multiple if you want. If you wanna do multiple look for the drop down box that says multiple and click on it then mark the number of pictures you want to down load.
after you do that it will give you a window will multiple drop down boxes and each set of boxes (one for a title and one for the path to the picture on your computer) will put one picture on photobucket.
after you have the pictures downloaded, they will show up at the bottom of the screen with the information needed to inset them on the forum. Just copy the img tag and paste it on the forum posting. I used the preview function when I post pictures to insure that I did not drop part of the tag. \
Hope this helps.
