    I think you type what you want to write and use the image tags to intersperse photo's in the text as you feel appropriate. Don't you?

    Click on the little square in the menu above the reply box -the yellow one with the mountains.

    Then pop the url of your pic in the box that opens.

    if you've uploaded the photos to photobucket, then it should show you various syntaxes containing the URL of the pic below its thumbnail, one should be the one in phpbb tags, e.g. something like
    [img]http://photobucket.com/mypics/mypic1.jpg[/img]

    click in that text box, and photobucket will copy it automatically and it should then say 'copied' in yellow.

    Go back to your post, and paste it in.


    then wherever you have the
    [img]http://photobucket.com/mypics/mypic1.jpg[/img]
    bit, that will be replaced by your image. (or should be if you've done it right)

    practice by previewing yourpost first.

  8. tdr1nka - I use tinypic, because I find it easy!;) On the front page, check out the 'resize' drop down - it lets you select massageboard etc. Browse will take you to your picture files lurking within PC. Select your image. Click on Upload button. Once tinypic has uploaded your chosen image, it presents you with urls for different media. Obviously copy the one for 'messageboards'...
    If I have a load of bits and bobs to upload, I will copy and paste each url to notepad or something like that - then put a description a couple of letter spaces away as an aide memoire.
    Compose your words forsooth and copy and paste a relevant image if it takes your fancy...
    Hope you have not been spending all this time Pshopping my grey hair to chestnut BTW;):biggrin:

    D'ya know, and how thick is this, I figured out on Wednesday your name was Tom:ohmy: and while I was editing the pictures that I really noticed your red hair.

    There was then a tremendous grinding noise from somewhere in my cranium and *ping* red hair + Tom = Redtom.

    There are things about me that clearly need checking.:biggrin:
