    Also helps to save image as a *.GIF to reduce file size. Good to see you got it sorted ;)

    That it is.

    What I mean is normal users don't have the extra little bits you're talking about.
    like the tick box or the option to upload to the forum.

    That's very true. Greatest question of all time?

    How long have been a member?
    I'm rocketing towards 10k and I've only been here a year or so.
    To much spam? Lol

    Doubt it if she's any thing like mine.

    I once had a white Sierra XR4x4, sold it and bout a white BMW 325. it took her about 2 weeks to notice the BMW is a BMW and not the sierra any more.
