Hi CT9

Welcome and thanks for the post.

'Fraid your pics didn't make it as far as I can tell. Take a look at the the tips on uploading pics to an album. Easy once you get the hang of it. I've created a shortcut to my album to save me 'wandering off'!

Look forward to seeing the pics and your updates as your layout progresses.

 :welcomesign: cycletrack 9. If you are having difficulty uploading pictures we can help. Are you using a third party site such as Photobucket or loading them to the media gallery?

I'm looking forward to seeing Wye Valley Sawmill and your buildings.
Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

My pictures are now showing up in recent albums as "Wye Valley Sawmill" but I'd appreciate advice on linking future uploads to the relevant post.

All I did this time was to create the album via the Media button.

Try going to your album and

Find the first photo you'd like to show in your post.

Open the pic so it's 'full size

At bottom Right just below pic you see the word 'Details'. Click on that

Scroll down a bit and you'll see various bits of text including 'BCC embed code'.

Panel to RH of that you'll see (Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
, that id's your pic.

Copy that id including both the square brackets and 4 number and paste it where you want the pic to appear within your post.

Here's one of mine again:

Repeat the process for each pic.

If I've got it right it'll work and if not, shout and somebody cleverer than I am will tell you what to do!!

I'm sure that would depend on what you need them for, Maurits.
For example, I will need some 2mm to top out my platforms which, at present, are just pieces of 9mm sundeala.
The thicker plastikard would be for walls for buildings I would have thought :hmmm:
