Can someone tell me how to put piccies on, every time I touch the icon i just get [img] now what do I do?

Perhaps I'm missing something and do I have to re-size?

If your photo is up online somewhere, just insert the URL in between the  for it to display on the forum.

It would be better I admit if we had the option to upload directly our own images stored on the computer/laptop.

To resize any image go to http://Resize.it and click on the swiss army knife on the right hand side (Advanced Tools), the rest is pretty much intuitive.

Obviously downloading Google Picasa (free) will help with the editing first too.

Blimey 'tis a bit posh, I don't know if I dare put up any photos of my rufty tufty interior now. I could certainly use some of your skills sometime.

How about a swap? My copywriting and marketing skills in exchange for a half decent interior in my van? My fees normally start at 1,000 btw - so it could be a good exchange if I can help you increase your conversion rate or beat out a current copy control, putting more business your way and money in your pocket?

Here is my LinkedIn profile if you want to take a gander:

https://uk.linkedin.com/pub/mark-andrews/16/77a/a14 (Just scroll down to where it says 'Summary' - you will need to log in to see my full profile).

I should add that I won't help any unethical business or company not for all the money in the world - I just won't allow them to buy me at whatever cost. The individuals I enjoy helping the most are typically SME's (small to medium size enterprises).

Sorry Mark.
I'm retired now and really into alternative living, I teach tai-chi, Yoga and meditation, I used to work as a Kodak film techy and chemist in central London. Nearly died from sex, drugs and booze, got out of it all when I was 45 and retrained as countryside management and in house restoration skills.
Never looked back.
Will help anyone in my area if they want, I love to keep active and meet similar minded peeps.
Swat life's all about.

Check out 'Bonobo First fires' that's how to live our lives.
