    Well done at sorting out the posting of images Dennis.  it’s easy when you know how.  Ian’s tutorial is brilliant.

    Re the butterflies. Shame you just clipped the antenna of one and wing of the other one.  Nice shot though and better than anything I got at my last visit to the zoo when the humidity caused my freezing cold camera and lenses to mist up with condensation.  A nightmare!  Lesson 1 … never go to a butterfly farm in winter.

    Thanks again Dolores you have been most helpful.

    Ian McNab phoned me this morning and I’m OK with it now. Its not just the process its also the vagaries of various software that have to work together.

    Yes I also had the problem of lens mist up in the butterfly house about four weeks ago.

    There are many ways to prepare and post images and we all seem to use different methods.  It is just a matter of finding the one which is comfortable for you.  The butterfly farm at Stratford is very good … but I would leave it until the summer.

    Oh! happy days.

    The photo of Danielle was uploaded to my private gallery and two small images above that (truck & butterfly) were uploaded to my public gallery.

    Ian …. why does my text keep changing colour after I post it?

    Dee >>> I think it’s to do with the emoticons:  looking at the ‘Text” tab of your post, the words after your ‘Big Grin’ emoticon are inside the end tag of the emoticon. How are you inserting them?

    Do an experiment for me:  write some text, insert an emoticon, and immediately write a bit more text.  Then go to a new line, write text, insert emoticon, then move the cursor to the end of the line by pressing Ctrl + End, and then type some text.

    (I can’t reproduce what’s happening in your posts 😕 as you see!)

    Drag and drop … maybe that is it?

    Dee >>> OK. Let’s see if I can get it to happen… :-| No, doesn’t do it.

    When you say ‘Drag and drop’ I assume you click on the ‘Grin’ icon in the row of formatting icons above the Editor window to reveal all the emoticons, and then drag one from there.  Is that right?

    Anyway, if you do whatever you do then have a look in the ‘Text’ screen, you’ll see that your words after the emoticon appear before the final ‘>’ sign of the emoticon tag.  That’s why the words are showing up blue.  Just cut and paste them after the ‘>’ sign.

    Quite why your computer is doing this is a mystery to me. :(
