adm,

If you remove the parentheses I think the link will work. To wit: http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3748/8852241438_5e7b10b2df.jpg. To be on the safe side, I usually highlight the link and click on the Insert Hyperlink button above (the first button in the second row, with the blue globe).

Cheers Pete,

Wasn't sure if the forum somehow disallowed links as opposed to uploaded images....although the parenthesis weren't added by me!

Weird - and I am normally fairly competent at posting images in forums.

How come no [img] option in this one?

Mainly to prevent dead links. There are some very old threads here that are still active.

Fair enough. I'll just have to get used to the upload option.

The only issue is that it's difficult to post an image with a caption underneath - but that's pretty much a first world problem!
