Well, seeing as you are in the mood, feel free Rich. Another alternative is get everyone to send you the photos and you can be even more helpful and post the photos.  ;D

Hi Martin, welcome. Don't forget we need to see some pics of the new paint job.
How dow you insert pics ?

Hmm, yes, but there's sometimes a bit more to it, Martin. Depends on the image service, if I remember rightly.
Have a read of those two links above. If you get stuck, just shout.

Are you using a cloud account, if so which one?

Just a little detail as to why images are a bit tricky:
- you cannot upload an image directly to this forum, for the simple reason that our storage space is very limited. We would be overrun within 3 days!

To be specific, you have to use a cloud based image service, so Google and Imgbb are the obvious candidates. I've also used Flickr successfully. (Most people have stopped using PhotoBucket because they now charge, so avoid them.)

So, upload your pics to Google/Imgbb, and then use the 'Insert Image' button, and paste your URL / link in.

You're not the first (or last) to struggle with images, so give it a spin. See the links earlier in the thread for Google and Imgbb-specific instructions.

I wouldn't use the "Insert Image", in imgbb just copy the embed codes and paste it straight into the post.

Quite right. My mistake.

How often have we seen this Rich, people struggle with image posting and when they find out how to do it, they say, how easy was that why didn't I know to do that before. It's a case of very easy when you know how.
I remember being on holiday and trying to post photos on the site on my mobile phone and pulling my hair out (now you know why I have very little left) until I found out how and I felt like a right numpty for not knowing how. We all live and learn  :)  :-\

imgbb.com is so much easier and I have provided full instructions. Google do not supply embed codes which is why they don't show up directly in the post.

Martin, I altered your post above and inserted a picture so that you can hit the modify button and see what I have added.
As you can see your link to your photo doesn't show and mine shows up ok. Take a look at the embed codes and you will get the idea, the link of mine is to imgbb.com as you will see.
Got it now the link from imgbb doesn't use the insert image ..... cheers fella

You're welcome Martin, see how easy it is when you know how. I'll tidy up the thread.

Glad ya like em gibbo, its a powder coat so not quite got the surface finish of a paint job but hopefully should be a lot tougher.
The pic gives the colour a brown tinge... it much nicer in real life nice deep red.
Pondering about whether or not to try and flat and polish the wheels (probably just the rims) but having never done it not feeling quite brave enough.
