Hi gsdoby,

Welcome to the chair caning forum! Please introduce yourslef and let us know what state you live in and how long you've been seatweaving.

Then follow the directions at the bottom of the homepage regarding posting images. I've copied and pasted them here for you though, too:

7.) POSTING PICTURES -- Pictures cannot be posted directly to this forum unless you have them hosted elsewhere like WebShots, Flickr, PhotoBucket, SkyDrive, Picasa Web Albums or stored on your own website image library and can use that special URL for the photos in your post or message.

You can also post pictures using a free website,, where you can select a photo from your computer. Make sure that after you upload your photo, select the button next to "DIRECT LINK" that says "Copy to Clipboard", then paste that link into your message here. Then the photo will show up right in the body of your message. The end of the line will be the name of the image you uploaded. Don't use any of the hotlinks buttons; they are for something else.
