Where have you posted them. I find it easier to just use photo bucket, I use a few forums, its easier having them in one place. There should be a link under the image, wherever its been uploaded to, which starts with '[ IMG ]' and ends with '[ /IMG ]'

Just copy that into the post, and it should show up.

I tried to look at your pic's in your post, but I cant get them to work... The url must be wrong or somthing... I want to see some pics though... I guess I'll check out your channel until then.
