    When I try to insert a pic by pressing the IMG button , I get this:

    Also how can you change the size and insert multiple pictures in a post.

    The image location your provided is invalid... that's why it is a broken image.

    If I hit "HTTP" the location works. Do I need a special location for the pictures? They are on Webshots now.

    The reason why you are actually having problems is that you gave a link to a webpage...( ...there is no extension to you link that the forum software recognizes as a picture. (*.bmp, *.gif, *.jpg.etc.) So it can not post it as a image.

    You should get the link directly from the picture.

    This is the picture you tried to post


    With a PC, right-click and selected properties and there you we see the direct location of the image.

    I hope that helps.

    That mower didn't come from my Grandma's house did it :D She had one like that years ago. Of course it was in a little better shape then. She lives just few miles down the road from ya there Billy.
