On the window for a message there is a square like a photo, mountains and sun? I think you click on that and then upload images...Is that right Admin? Or start a photo album (making sure your images are saved as a jpeg), then tell people to look in your new album!

This does work but first you would have to upload your photos to a web service such as Photobucket and then copy and paste the URL of the picture on the Photobucket website when you click on the mountain button.:conehead:

The upload worked.

Have a look at skydragon's pics of varroa.

Everyone should have seen the FERA or DEFRA publication 'Managing Varroa'.

You could compare your pics with those.

Or if in a suitable displayable format such as JPG, and not too big (< 19Mb) you can attach from your PC using the paperclip button, and that will show in the post :conehead::conehead:

19mb is an utterly colossal image file, far bigger than is even produced by most digital cameras, and nothing anywhere near that size should ever be uploaded (it weighs heavy on the forum server space, which costs money), and makes the page very slow to load for anyone on less than a really fast connection - all images should be cut down in size (from perhaps 3000x4000 to 600x800) then saved as an "optimised jpg" - which will give an image big and detailed enough, but that is gentle on the server space and those on slow connections - as an example, the following picture is only 86kb, but "does the job"
