Just go to http://imgspot.com/ it's free and easy with shorter URL and BBC codes.
Just hit browse, find you picture and click "host it".

Blokey, I don't know how it is on your computer, but on mine I go to "My Pictures", "select" the picture, click on "edit" which goes to "Paint" and then go to "Image" and select "stretch/skew" and keep reducing the "horizontal" and "vertical" until I get the size I want.
You will have to re-host it to get the right size posted here though.

I twould also be a good idea to delete the above picture to get us all back to normal size on this thread.

Hey Blokey, even thought your photo is too dark to read the barrel, don't think for a minute it went by un-noticed!

Some may think they are looking at a Python or a Diamondback but we know better. Don't we!

Wanta see its 4" brother?

BTW Blokey, nice, very nice indeed.

acre5, First you have to go to the link (host) that I showed and hit "browse", pick out the picture from your files, select and hit "host it", when finished the URL and BBC codes will appear. I don't know how to "paste" and all that stuff, all I do is put the
on the end and up the picture comes.

WS23,

Thanks!!! Yeah, it came out a little dark but as you can see I'm no Ansel Adams when it comes to photography! It's the pic I use in the gun inventory freeware I use called "GunSafe"; nice program.

I guess to the untrained eye it may look like a Python or Diamondback but the trigger, hammer, grips and barrel profile reveal its true identity and that it's a constrictor of a different ilk. It's no. 404 of 600 and it's NIB with all the papers. Its blotchy complexion is due to the generous slathering of EEZOX I put on it for storage.

I've yet to see a 4-incher in person but occasionally I see them up for sale, I definitely prefer the proportions of a 6" revolver.

Your compliment is appreciated and "made my day"!!

Blokey, you are one lucky bloke.
Nice gun, don't be surprised if you get offers to sell.

1)I went to the imgspot website-but after I have clicked on Browse then on Host it, how do I get my pictures posted on this Forum? which of the three lines that pops-up(After Host-it)do I need to type-in somewhere(URL, BBC code, img?)? I can't find any links to either my pictures or what to do next after, Host it? Please help with some clear instructions? Thanks!

Colt38, I'm not smart enough either to do all that copy and paste stuff, so I just put
immediately after it and it comes up, try it.
