BigGrin Hi guys
This is aimed at at those of you who are able to produce build diaries with images that load properly every time. I don't suppose, in the adsence of a new forum, you could show the tech-less amongst us (basically - ME), how you actually do it? PLEASE? Most of the diaries i try to follow, i have to re-load numerous times to get all the images to be actually viewable. I know we've all been bemoaning this issue from, well as far back as i can remember and i have been a member of this forum since 2010!!!

Can someone please enlighten me? If only for future builds.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and hopefully, showing me how to improve my build diaries ThumpUp

Regards Gray

Hi Gray

I use my own web space and link to a picture.

I use photoshop to crop and size the images to 670 px wide and then upload them to my web space using filezilla. All ISPs used to provide this in the old days by I understand they have move to the cloud now and using the web will cost you extra.

It might be worth checking it out with your provider. You might find you had some all time after all.

Thanks for the quick reply, John. Maybe the Forum should start a new section, a bit like the electronics section, where people could showcase how they do it Wink

Just my thoughts
