When you go into photobucket (see the guide to mastering photobucket in the members photo album section), once you load a picture there will be a a box with a URL address. It will read like this. "http:something................"
Just copy that address starting with HTTp.
Then when you log in to the forum, go to the profile section located up the top of the screen. Then click modify profile. Then there will be a box a little way down title "AVTAR URL". Then just paste the URL you copied from photobucket in there and bobs your uncle..

Yes we did survive the 50's fair ok, thanks. It was my first visit to the event, eventhough Alan had been previously. Friends had always talked it down, apparently it's not the best place to be if the weather has been wet. But being such a lovely day, we had a nice time. 4,500 is a big crowd.
It was great to meet you, Kate and the kids. You were doing a fantastic job with promoting Vintage Vans and the upcoming Coledale trip . It was also nice for me to put some faces to the forum usernames. Atleast when we arrive at Coledale Alan and I will know/recognise someone.
We are thinking of going down to Coledale aswell this weekend as it's a Public Holiday for me - any excuse to go away !!!!! Mind you the weather doesn't look too promising, so we'll see.

well it seems you can teach an old dog new tricks. It only took 2 hours for me to perfect? uploading a picture to Photobuckme and transferring it to here. It was easy once I found the cut and paste thingy. Spent the next hour cleaning the clag off the screen!!!
Thanks for the tips, hopefully I can get some photos on my posts now, although getting photos through on dialup is a pain.
