Well dragging and dropping a pic doesn't work.
Following Paul's instructions doesn't work.
Browsing in my pic file and right click doesn't work.

Any other suggestions for the tech challenged before I can't be bothered any more.

speaking as a computer pleb,dont know if this is how Paul described, but, how I did it was go to the picture you want.
Make the window your in not full screen, ensuring you can see your desk top image behind the window you have open, click and drag the image out of the window your in and release it over the desktop. The image should then stay there. Then go back to boxertrix site which is also set to not full screen size, grab your image with your mouse and drop it on your open text box thingy where you want pic to be. Oh yeh, before you grab the picture make sure you have clicked the Img button.
Finally scroll down and you will see the image thing you have added and just click on the button to apply it(can't remeber what is says excatly) just not the delete button.
This should have your image in view when you press the preview button, If not, aint got clue mate

Also sorry for the un technical terms...

good luck :D :D

Sold that house and bought another, but also have 6kw system here. We got in with the feed-in tariff 27c/kWh (3 years to go at that rate)..not transferable when you move, but sold and bought privately and the people we bought this home from offered to receive account in their name till it drops back (they built 2 doors down). There are no power bills anyway :wink:

Hi John,

I've put some more instructions on how to upload pictures to the site in Steve's post. Give it another go.

Cheers,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Excellent Paul, so easy now, however, all my pics seem to large, what is the largest I can add?

Hi Steve,

I've increased the file upload size limit to 1 megabyte, so please try again. If you are taking jpegs direct from your multi-megapixel camera, you might need to re-size the files before you upload them. I would recommend a horizontal dimension of less than one thousand pixels for images you want to upload would be optimal. Don't forget the bigger the file, the longer it takes for people with slower connections to download them.

Cheers,

Paul
