Yes - and very snazzy too. Someone gave me a snippet of HTML coding to replace the link I had before - all I need now is to find out how he did it and do the same for the other link! - It's only a close up of my snazzy wheels (well I think they're snazzy)

Change your signature to ...

[img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5187/566 ... 3297_m.jpg[/img] [img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5307/566 ... bd3d_m.jpg[/img]


The [img] [/img] part is what tells the browser that the link is a picture and to show it (this also applies when posting on the forum as well)

Resized pictures - in Flickr, there is an option to view your picture at different sizes - I just picked a size that isn't too large for a signature and linked to that

Nothing is as frustrating as arguing with someone who knows what he's talking about.

Hi John, just figured out on Flickr where it posts the image link...

1. Right-click on the photo from your library, and choose the size you want

2. Right-click on the photo (again) and select properties

3. You should then see a Address (URL) in the form of - http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5307/566 ... e7bd3d.jpg

4. Highlight this address, right-click + copy

5. Paste this in to your ZRoadster post and add the tags at the start and end of the address line

You will then end up with this...!

Well, well, well - as simple as that! I should have known really, well, if I'd looked carefully at the info I was given.
I must do some better pictures of the car - maybe when I've polished it up and then re-do my signature.
Many thanks for the help Gaz
