How to post/delete pictures and quotes

Currently available for Zoomies and Moderators only.
HOW TO'S

When posting images, they should not exceed 480 x 385 pixels, and the sum of file sizes of all images in one post may not exceed 240 KB. No more than 4 images should be posted in any single message, to make it easier for other cammers to view them and to give others a chance to post images. Any message which contains more than 4 images will be deleted. To help to make the picture pages easier to navigate, any repeated images will be deleted to save bandwidth and to speed up page downloads for those with slower internet connections.

Seeing the Ground Hornbills this morning was even better! It was fantastic”
