Hi Keith - That's right. The other images you see "posted" here are really only links from other websites so unless the photos you want to post are on the web somewhere else you are out of luck. Andy the SC Webmeister explained that it would fill up our space very quickly if we actually posted real images so what you see on this message board are really just links to other sites.
You could sign up for one of the free web services like "Tripod" or "Angelfire". They have very simple tools that will allow you to post your photos there - then you can put them on this board using the image button you see above the area where you enter posts.
Thanks Tim. I will check out there web site and see what i need to do to get one up and running. I have been thinking about starting a web site for a while now so this will be the push I need to do it. Regards Keith
