It certainly seems to be a word that has fallen out of fashion amongst the older generation, especially those senior citizens who barge past me to get to the front the bus queue. :lol:

Reduce the size in Microsoft paint or link to a picture on the web using the link option. Right click on an image and you can copy its exact address from the properties

What Pip said. The specifications are: "Maximum dimensions; width: 120 pixels, height: 120 pixels, file size: 125.00 KiB."

if in doubt, rightclick on the picture you want to use and select "Properties". That should tell you pixel size and file size.

Piccolo indeed Ghost! :D :D I was wondering how you upload pictures on here as part of a post? The reason Im asing is I have a copy of Men at arms, and what looks like Sir Terry's signature, (I got it from a second hand book shop), and I'd like to upload a picture of the signature on here for verification? Above the sigature, it says "Read 'em and reap", and a stamped picture of a skeleton. (reference to death methinks) Dont know if its common, but as I say, would like to upload a picture of it on here for scrutiny / verification. Cheers!!

Yes Thats it (who's) Wee Dug! Exactly!!!! I only paid £2.99 for it, no dust jacket you see, - the seller had lots of copies of the same novel and I got this one. Was a bit miffed by the lack of dust jacket, but if you say this is a worthy find, then it more than makes up for it! I thought mine says read em and "reap" cos I associated the skeleton with the grim reaper I.E. Death, but he is leaping, so it coud well say "leap"! :D Whats the signifigance of it then? I suspected the signature on mine may have been Sir Terry's, but the skeleton stamp and other writing, I thought it may have been written by someones friend before giving it as a gift. Is it common amongst Autographed books?
