BTW, click on the image you find to enlarge it.

You can also alter the size of your image once you've inserted it into your post:







What might help, Lis, is simply "quote" my post as if you were going to reply to me and take a sneak peek at all I've done! :)

Thanks, Don!

I never knew how to do that! I often can't find large enough pictures and wondered how people find large ones.

In yours, you made it smaller, but I can see it works to make it bigger (below):







Now, I just need someone to explain the tinyurl function.  ???

George! Don! SonicMan: Waking up and finding caring replies from you Gentlemen, made my sunny Sunday even sunnier! I printed out your advise and I shall practice, practice, practice!

I'm glad the idea for this thread worked out. :D

Another tip from me: you can make an image "clickable" - so that clicking on it would take you to another site.

The general formula is this:

--- Code: --- [url=ADDRESS OF THE PAGE YOU ARE LINKING TO] [img] ADDRESS OF THE IMAGE THAT YOU WANT DISPLAYED AS A LINK [/img] [/url]
--- End code ---
(sorry for the size of this, can't figure out how to make it larger... :-\)

Here's an example. On the page http://www.merlin.com.pl/frontend/browse/product/4,427832.html there's an image of a compact disc. I would like to post the image on the forum and make it "clickable", so that anyone who clicks on the image will be taken to the appropriate web page. In order to do this you have to "embed" the img inside the url. So if you type in
--- Code: --- [url=http://www.merlin.com.pl/frontend/browse/product/4,427832.html] [img]http://www.merlin.com.pl/images_product/25/3460382.jpg[/img] [/url]
--- End code ---
you will get the following effect (click on the image to see that it in fact does send you to another page):



Note that the url and /url "commands" are on the outside, while the img and /img "commands" are on the inside (embedded in the url).

Here's another example, maybe the shorter url will make things easier?

If you type in

--- Code: --- [url=http://www.google.com/] [img] http://www.gigant.pl/assets/images/p1.jpg [/img] [/url]
--- End code ---
you will get a gigant.pl logo that sends you to the Google search page (try it):



Phew! I'm not sure if this is English or Computerish but it's the best I can come up with at the moment... :-\

Now here is my question: there was a "Convenient thread alignment" thread on the old forum, where people would post screenshots of GMG. How was that done? (Since we can't post there anymore, the "quote" option is not available... :()
