    This is the most recent one of me. It was taken after a long day out at the football when we went to see Forest play at QPR. Yes I'm nearly falling over in that photo, but the others were as drunk as me as well. I look like I'm 3 feet tall in that photo, I will admit that I'm not very tall (5'8 or maybe 5'9 at a stretch!) but I'm not a total dwarf ;)

    You can resize them (say 800 or less pixels wide) and adjust the jpeg compression to make the file size below 120k - then use the 'manage attachments' button under the reply box you type in to upload them to the AVForums server. They will then be clickable at the bottom of your post.

    If you want them to appear in the thread as images you need to 'host' them somewhere on the internet. Could be homepage space with your isp (like I do) or somewhere like pbase. If you can type an address into internet explorer and see your picture then you can put the picture in your post by using the 'insert picture' icon above where you type your reply.

    Mattym - if you put an index.htm file in each of your picture folders on your picture host it will stop nosey people like me from being able to poke around.

    Like the raptor pictures :)

    This is the content of my index.htm

    <HTML>
    <body>
    <H1> Go find your own images!<H1>

    It is a particularly poor year for Carp fishing in North America and number/size of fish are well down. One pictured was 23 lb , on a previous visit we had plenty to mid 30"s.

    Here is two of me..the first one is of me with a suntan at my mates BBq and smoking a sausage..so just to prove that I'm not obsessed with sausages, I have posted one of me with my lovely daughters in wales, whilst going to see a long tailed duck.

    mattym take another one with your tongue out and I'll bet yo look even more like the monster of the octagon...just looking at your photo in the digital photo mag..Helga looks even better in print...weldone.
