Hello Ron

If you click the "Post Reply" button under the "Quick Reply" box you will find an "Attachments" tab at the bottom of the screen. When you click this you will see an "Add files" button. The rest should be fairly straightforward!

Hi Everyone, could someone please point me in the direction of a complete "IDIOTS" guide to posting images and descriptions using the sites format. For some reason I am missing something probably very simple. Thanks in advance.
