    Ok so Gary has done textual instructions on how to post a picture to the forum from your PC


    1.Using the forum upload method
    Open the Post a reply
    Scroll down the screen until you see Upload attachment
    Click the button Choose File - this will open up a Windows Explorer window
    Search for the file you want, then left-click on it, then click on the Open button
    This brings you back to the reply box - add a comment, if required, the click Add the File button
    The file will upload
    Once uploaded, you can add more files, using the above steps
    Complete your post, then click the Submit button


    I have done some step by step instructions with pictures to help. I have also shown you how to compress any large pictures so they do not go over the 2Mbyte limit for uploading. If your picture isn’t over the limit then you can skip those steps but Microsoft Picture Manager is a handy little tool that many do not know is there if you have Microsoft Office installed.

    Below I have shown you how to compress any large pictures that are over the 2Mbyte forum limit but Microsoft Picture manager has some other handy little features for cropping and adjusting your pictures.

    Have just found this Snoops, Sorry I missed it. Well done, just what we needed, :ymapplause: it explains it all so simply. So much so, that I think Gazza should put this thread and the photobucket one in a permanent place, so that they can easily be found again when necessary!! :-bd

    I now understand why you questioned the Rutland Line up pic as not being put on straight from our pics! Question is how did you know that we hadn't :-\

    I think you've misunderstood my post Mike, I was looking through all the piccies and as with every zed meet, we don't seem to adhere to the lines on the ground. Then there was a photo - at last a proper line up... and I suggested someone had photo shopped out the lines :p ...

    Glad you found the how to helpful - 2 hrs well spent if it helps :D

    With regard to parking up Zeds in lines, we all take our cue from Badman Gee & Zedster4 , who are reknowned for being the most fanatical parkers in Cambridgeshire, owing to the fact they need 2 spaces each, in case of flying doors!!!! :D
