Excellent photos. Could you explain to many of us (in simple, plain English) how you did it? I have been regularly mocked and foiled by my computer. Thousands would be in your debt.
Thanks Much, Ed

Ed, in order to post photos you firsts need to sign up to a free image hosting website, such as Photobucket.I'm not an expert, but this is what I did, and it works OK... Find the picture you wish to use on your pc. Click upload on your hosting website, find that image and upload it to Photobucket. Once you see it there, you'll be able to select it and click on it again, and you will see some boxes to the right. One of these is IMG. Run your mouse along it to highlight it, then right click and copy...this copies the image.
Then, on G503 find where you want to reply to, and click on Post Reply, write your piece, then under it..right click again and paste, and you will see all the details of the picture you want to post.
If you click PREVIEW at the bottom you should then see your post and the pic in all it's glory, meaning it's worked. So then just click SUBMIT, and hey voila....job done...I hope this helps..Richard. As I said, I'm no expert, but I find this does work OK

Just another thought, don't make the pics too large. You might find that a 700 by 400 size pic works OK

Photobucket was the company that caused the issues with photos disappearing on all forum sites including this one & demanding something like $400 a year from those who posted pictures in future.

I changed to Postimage and it has worked out well for me. They are still free and no BS like Photobucket.

Thanks to all. In my case, I take John Wayne's words to heart: "Life is hard. It's especially hard if you're stupid".
Best, Ed

JG in 1968-70 [nearly 50 years ago] started an epic Jeep journey in Tamworth NSW next setting off from Melbourne Victoria to Perth Western Australia then on to Carnarvon Western Australia close to 6,000km in total. The Nullabor Plains was a nearly all rutted dirt & bulldust road as was a major part of the Coastal Road between Perth & Geraldton, in those days.

I fear Postimage will not be free forever but I am sure they learned from Photobuckets debacle what NOT to do. Photobucket has been all over me to join back up and is offering full restoration of all of my pictures and everything for 99.00 a year now. no adds or anything. I have always said that is probably a fair price but I flat out do NOT trust Photobucket. I asked if they would give me that deal in a contract with theirs and my name on it and got no reply. No written contract, no deal. Not with that outfit. They are hurting if they are stooping to this, and the deals have been getting better. I just want to see them fold altogether.

Hi Rick Ed John, and others,
When I did my recent tests for posting pics, I used Photobucket, but the images I used were already on PB. I haven't tried uploading new pics for a while.
Thanks Rick for the Postimage info. I'll give them a go...
Richard....I hope you are successful Ed....
