    I know how to put picture's that are off the web into posts/sig but havn't quite mastered the fine art of inserting picture's from my own drive. One would imagine it to be easier to put a picture off my drive than off the web!!!

    Any help would be most appreciated as i'm getting most concerned for my sanity every minute I try!!!

    :fuckinpc:

    you need to upload it to some webspace (i usually use lycos tripod for hosting images etc, it's free.. www.tripod.lycos.co.uk). once the image is uploaded, find the url of it (go to your member site thing, http://members.lycos.co.uk/username/) and find the image, click on it, when you're viewing it - copy the address. then go to the control panel on here, and put it in tags!

    remove the stars. images cna't be linked from your hard drive ;)

    Thought so, saw you posting on there the other day but wasn't sure.

    My name's @acked on there by the way, fuck using my other alias on DOA!!

    I'm just designing my own site now!! Initially I was just gonna put the picture in so I could get it for my sig but I may as well finish off now!!!
