    How do you load pictures up on this screen here?

    You need to have server to load them to or you could try to link to the pic directly from a website (not your own). If you right-click on a pic at a site and go to Properties you can see the URL the pic comes from. Click on the pic of Mike above and go to Properties (for an example). Some sites will restrict you linking to them though (i.e. the pic may not display or it may say "this pic comes from Blah Blah" - different sites have different messages that display.

    Some sites don't seem to care or notice when you link directly to a pic from them.

    Anyway, once you see the URL, just copy and paste it, then define it as an image using the buttons above. Try it with the image of MM above. Hit Preview before Submit to see if you linked correctly.

    Hope this doesn't annoy Berry. Just using it as an example. :D And if the image is too big, it may throw off the formatting of the page, so be careful - it isn't harmful, it just makes people have to scroll right and left and may annoy some admins.
    When they had advanced together to meet on common
    ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
    and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
    each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
    mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
    killing, and the ground ran with blood.

      One other note,

      It is preferable to use your own server, that way you know the image will always be there (and you don't piss off some admin by linking to his site without permission).

      One easy way to do this is to use a service that offers "photo albums" online. I often use HP's service that allows me to post pics so that family and friends can see them. Many of these will give you a link directly to the image, which you can then use as described above. I think Kodak has an online photo-album and Ofoto is another. Not sure if you have to pay ( I bought a HP printer recently so I think it gave me access for free), but I bet there are several free ones if you search for a bit -

      just did a Google search right after a wrote this - there are too many online albums services to list to list here!

      Link to my search:
      http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...e+photo+albums

      BTW love your ideas for the Elric movie!! :D

                  Shameless self promotion (sorry). No, really, just testing the function.
                  Chapter nine has stuff about chaos theory, big banks and social darwinism. Chapter ten has stuff on Chaos theory and the second ether.

                  BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

                    It looks interesting. Hard to read the subtitle. What does it say? Sounds like philosophy - then I'm in!

                    Here, I will promote you as well



                    Handsome devil! :lol:
                    (I'll edit the pic out if you want. Just thought it was funny to post - not funny in your looks, but funny in the act of posting. Don't want to intrude on your privacy so if you want I'll edit)

                      Von LOL! No, that's fine. Funny--I agree.

                      The title is Critical Synoptics: Menippean Satire and the Analysis of Intellectual Mythology.

                      Clicking my www button will lead you to some reviews.

                      I'd be interested in seeing people posting their pics here, if it's OK with Mike--just to see what'ch y'all look like. Could be fun . . . I bet there are some real cats who come around to this site!
