Note that we have not permitted the posting of attachments to posts on this forum. So it is not possible for users to put up their own photos. This is because we need to keep tabs on the overall size of material posted here (photos can take up a lot of space). But that doesn't mean we don't want to see your photos - far from it! If you've got an image which you would like to share with other forum users, send it to me (for post-1960 images) or Tony Hare (if pre-1960) and we will find it a home on one of our websites. Then you can link to the page from here and carry on a discussion about it as you think fit.

Although I've prevented the uploading of photos, there is still a way to insert a photo on a page, by using the Img button found just above the posting window.

If you click on that it will place two Img tags on the page, and you can then insert the URL (of a photo that you have identified elsewhere on the web) between the start and end tags. That will then display the photo in the requisite part of your post.
