are you married? man, she's a good woman if you get to hang anything you want wherever you want.

i like the RS covers, but you're missing the jim morrison death issue. i snagged a mint copy years ago for $100. i should frame it. are those originals or reprints of the cover? hard to tell.
not married...yet. but she is a good woman who loves the posters (for now)

ahhhh...she's a keeper. you're a lucky man.

How do you get attachments to show up in posts? I keep adding pictures as attachments and then they don't show up in the message... ?

The image button above the text box should do the trick.

Be sure the attachment isn't too big (most are).

I upload everything to tinypic.com. After uploading, click on the picture until it's at it's largest, then right click, select properties, and a dialog box pops up. Save the "item location," a web address ending in .jpeg.

Now, in the EB post, when you're ready for the pic, click the "IMG" button. Then, paste the picture info. Then click "IMG" again. That's it.

I've got some framed art, but I'd rather post it in the REAL framed thread.

Mods, please unlock.

why would you want your pictures to be lost in that mess of a thread?

Thanks. It must be that my images are too big. I will try this out tonight.

I reverse the strips for tight s/n pieces. In otherwords mat face down. Put the artwork in, centre, then put the strips around art work on the main mat. Works like a charm and no chance of the strips being seen since they are behind the art.
