Thanks, Phill.

I should also mention, Bob, that it's obviously not a 'high' church.

Is there some reason why you can't host your pictures on here DD?

A definition of 'Kit-bashing'? :question

I would suggest that a kit-bashed model has been based upon a particular kit, but has been altered in more than minor detailing.

For example, a church model kit where a new round tower has been scratchbuilt and used to replace the original square one, but the remainder of the building is still pretty much as it came in the kit. Look upon it as a 'conversion' - a change in structure.

There's my suggestion anyway. :thumbs

Bob: I'm on a Mac.
I can load pics. but not access them after to add to a post.

I can host them off forum and then add a series of URLs but this is quite time consuming.
For a single pic., using the attachment facility is very quick.
I didn't realise that other members can't access the attachment until now (unless Rector is a one off in this way as well as other ways).

We've been through this before and no answer was found if you remember.

Rick/Gwiwer uses a Mac & loads all of his direct with text, etc .

 

Rick, are you there?

Present and Correct, Sir.  There's a post somewhere with a Mac "How to".  I'll go looking and re-post here when I find it.

 

FOUND IT.  If this doesn't help or resolve the problem PM me and we can work through it step by step.

I support Perry's definition of kit-bashing. It's a grey area but I think he's nailed it.

This was the upshot of the last foray into posting (and nominating) pictures:

"I'm glad DD has 'fessed up to being puzzled too, any closer to getting it straight, yet, DD?"

No - I've given up and will confine myself to voting.
As my Grandad said, "I'm too tired to start any new paintbrushes".

As soon as the advice includes clicking right or left buttons I'm lost.
I don't have any left or right buttons.
I use Safari as my browser.

Is there some objection to using the attachment facility?
Not much use if folk can't see it!

DD

It does not matter how you display your pictures and from where really.

 i think they were thinking it would be easier for you if you used the galllery time wise

There is a whole detailed page to take on board and I'm sure I'd forget the advice by the next time.
Good to hear that, Brian.

DD, your mouse does not have a left & right buttons like the one below?

So many applications now use both buttons to bring up sub-menus - hard to imagine a mouse without buttons



I don't think the browser would cause concern.

Most Macs don't use multi button mice, Ron.

Correct. The Mac mouse does not have left / right buttons. The selections made by using those in the Windows environment are made using dropdown menus on a Mac. Every bit as easy but strange until you get used to it.

We have already established that the Image Upload buttons available to most Windows system users are not available to Mac users; they simply don't exist on the reply pane.

It's a little more fussy to post images using a Mac but I learned a way to do it.

You depress the "nose" end of the mouse which will cause it to click. Though for anyone familiar with musculine anatomy the nose is usually at the opposite end to the tail. Trust computers to be different!

Mine has a scroll ball in the top - the one illustrated doesn't - ad they all have two buttons on the side used for minimising / maximising multiple windows

Move the mouse (which moves the cursor on screen) and click, Ron.

I have a wire less facility but I prefer hard wired (as with Broadband).
WiFi is a step too far for me.

A typical DD thread.

Starts with a veiled criticism of a kit and progresses to a survey of computer electronics.
