Hi,

Stumbled across this site by chance whilst trying to do some research on the problems I'm encountering with my CF card - another story for another forum another day though!

Will have a good look around this site, but it's great to find something dedicated to Olympus users. I have owned my E-400 for over 4yrs now and think it's great, really versatile & produces cracking images!

I look forward to chatting with you all soon!:

G'day from an Aussie in the Blue Mountains of NSW Australia.

I have just checked your photos in your gallery & they are all very nice, interesting photos, but this one of the butterfly on the thistle is my favourite.



I look forward to seeing more from you.



PS I thought it should be displayed in the thread to show the others your gallery is certainly worth looking into.

LOL! Used to own a GPz750E1 - yip, the Turbo! Hence the nickname which stuck! Had a VW Corrado with a Supercharger as well...wrong forum for vehicle discussions methinks!

Thanks for the kind comments about my photo!

I've uploaded a few more photos.

Further to Ross the Fiddler's posting, I can't seem to copy & paste the link to put an image on here, probably missing something completely obvious...

When on the Home Page & in the Highlights box on the right, there is a video link for instructions to add your gallery photos to a thread. Here is that link.

Alternatively, on the right of the box for typing into the thread & under the Smilies selection, there is My Pics. Press [Open] to show your thumbnails & select Clickable thumb (to gallery) selection & after clicking on thumbnail photo, the line (in the typing in box) will contain "thumbs/". Delete that out of the line & the resulting full sized image showing in the thread will be linked back to your gallery by clicking on it as it would be by the first option in the video.

In the My Pics selection, there is also Original image option & if that is selected then there will still be the large photo from your gallery in the thread but it won't be clickable linked to your gallery.

I hope that helps & not confuses.
