Andrew. Thanks for the explanation. Will not re-post pictures. I thought it was alright to do as I had seen car pictures on this newsgroup b4. Was unaware of the binaries thing. Sorry everybody! Cheers Brett (To be honest though I would have thought if it was such a bad thing to do, technology would have prevented it from being posted at all?!) Good job I made the jpg as small as I could. Could you imagine how upset Dave Hinz would have been then?? :)) "Andrew Stephenson" <> wrote in message > In article <3v9c9.317771$> > "Brett" writes: > > > You cannot post pictures on regular newsgroups.
