New Things To Learn

Umm, how do I start a form for the 1000 series of trucks? And how do I post pictures? I don't doubt there are many new things to learn, but I work on HVAC systems, and am not as computer literate as others seem to be. Bill

Bill,

Go to the 1000 Series forum.
In the upper left corner should be a link that says "New Topic". Click on it to start your new topic. As for uploading images, I haven't tried that yet (been kinda busy getting this whole thing going).
I see a link to "upload attachment" at the bottom of a new post. This is what the guys are using to post pic, etc.

I used the "img" button at th top to post a (already hosted) pic of the Jungle Yacht. Might save room here for our own pix- will try it when the need arises- might save steps.

Clicking on the img button brings up a pair in brackets with your cursor between. Right click, copy image location on picture. Ctrl V to paste and it's in.

Re: New Things To Learn

Picture size needs to be smaller than 250kb. Try reducing it in "paint" do a resize and see if that works.

Re: New Things To Learn

If you post pics on photobucket, there is a photo editor there which will allow you to resize them. I also have photo editing software on my computer that came with my printer. You might have something similar.

I used Gary's method and it works pretty good. Manny
