Re: uploading my pics

Your pics must be big.

Try resizing them first with something such as IrfanView, which can be downloaded from here;

Re: uploading my pics

In IrfanView, choose Image>Resize/Resample

Change the dimensions to width 800 and keep the aspect ratio the same. Click OK. Then do File>Save as..., choose a place to save the file and in the options box, make sure that the quality slider is set to around 40%.

Save the file and use the attachments feature on here.

I'm in West Derby.

Not many Alfa garages round here, there's a good breaker in Seaforth if you're handy with a spanner, or there's Alfatune in St Helens, but I hear they're a little pricey.

Caledonia in Warrington is the nearest main stealer, sorry...dealer.

Re: uploading my pics

Welcome aboard steve.

I use Mihov Image Resizer. What it does is it renames the file once it has been shrunk -- it calls the file minixyz (whatever the file name was originally). Perhaps the software you're using does something similar. Maybe you should see if you have files names that you don't recognize in your directory.

(Of course that suggestion is a total and complete shot in the dark, as I have never used Irfan View.)

If you read the 'How To Post Pictures' thread in the 'Just Images' forum then you should be able to post the pictures yourself next time.
