Pensky you have to up load your pictures on the net somewhere, when you have the picture up "Right click" on the picture and "Click On Properties" highlight it and copy the URL address, paste it where you want the picture, high light the address again and click Img tag above, that should do it.

You can use this free site above, to upload your pics you just need an email address.

Or right click on any picture on the net, copy properties and paste it like I've done with this picture from ebay, high light the address and click on the Img above.

Here's your picture, Pensky. I can't see where you've gone wrong either, but it does work (I copied the URL from your previous post, and used the 'Img' facility above. From what I can see, you did everything right).

Ahhh - another look at your post reveals a space typed at the end of the URL before you closed the image. Tiny error, but that's all it takes. Try it again yourself with no spaces. Don't worry about the thread - whatever you're doing, people are learning from it.

were my last two big buys and they were for Karen! Hoping to pick up a few nice shiney comics at Expo in Bristol next month! :)

Steelclaw, if those Commandos are from your personal collection then you are showing off! :lol: Just started buying Commandos again and I find it is so hard to resist some of the glorious bargains that can be found on Ebay.

Sweet buy on those Misty back issues. I passed on a large pile in a charity shop in the pre-internet days. Big regret now of course.

Guys, they were a very sweet buy as the seller had put both lots on Ebay with the Buy It Now option. After a swift battering of the calculator, I figured out that I could buy them and get someone a very nice birthday pressie. Got her the annuals for Mother's Day (still got 85 and 86 to pick up though) and am now scouring Ebay and 26pigs for the Summer Specials.

Steelclaw, that was a cheap deal for those 3 Commandos. They can hit that price for single issues alone. After Karen and Lyndsey (12 yr old daughter) have read them, I might be forced to peruse a few copies! :lol: Half the time, I am read them while trying to figure out who drew what! :P Thanks to the wonder of the web, I now know that Moonchild was beautifully illustrated by John Armstrong, but his style is so much like the later Spinball Wars, I had to check twice.

Earl, know what you mean. After first divorce, I was forced to choose between 2000AD collection and Commando collection due to lack of space. That was pain! But thankfully Karen is as big a comic fan as I and we almost egg each other on in buying comics. :wink:
