Hi, nice report. In the future though. I see you tried to post pics with it, Paste the link as you have done already and then rehighlight it, then click the IMG button. the image should show up then.

The way I do thumbs
You need to put the = sign in right after the L

Copy URL from your large picture. Paste it right after the = sign.
Right click on your thumb size go to properties and copy the addrress URL
insert between
Is that clear as mud?
if you have any problems let me know it took me some playing but I got it down pretty good now.
Great shots.[/url]

Thanks I'll try that next trip report. It was fun out in the snow yesterday. Back to work today and it was nice and sunny, blue sky and all. Have to work tomorrow, inventory, so won't get much of a chance to shoot stuff Saturday.
