When a bunch of unnamed photos of plants are posted it is frustrating to viewers and leads to multiple follow-up questions, such as "what is your 4th photo". I would like to suggest adding a caption identifying the plant in each photo (or group of photos of the same plant). As an alternative, the name could be included as the jpg name (alata1.jpg), rather than IMG1234.jpg

Thumbnails are a really great idea. It would be nice to encourage the use of them when ever possible for members on dial up.
Who will teach me how to do this? I have a PhotoBucket account.
Some sites will automatically generate thumbnails and URLs for them. In my case I have to actually duplicate my pics in TN size and then upload both the TN and full sized to my host site. In either case, when you post them you need to write the link like this: [url=http://steve.nightscapecreations.com/sarfull.JPG][img]http://steve.nightscapecreations.com/sartn.JPG[/img][/url]
The full size picture link needs to be included INSIDE the URL bracket. And the thumbnail image goes inside the IMG tags.
I have my new computer now and I have been using it for two days now. A member named pthiel (sp?) is going to help me once I get going with adding back data and settings so that I can function a little bit better but I thank you very much for your suggestion to use Photobucket and I have created an account there.
