Thank you so much! I read through all this at the onset. It didn't register in my brain. I went to the tech support board, and was able to post.  I'm sorry if I'm doing it incorrectly.  I'm an old dog trying to do new tricks. When something works, I go with it. Is there a problem?  I don't want to be trouble.

 :( No.... let's see if I can help you.

When you load your photo into your gallery, scroll down the page. You will see a line that says BBC embed code. The code (to the right) will look like this:  [smg id=xxxxx] yours will have numbers, not x's.  ;)    Just click in that box, and it will highlight the complete code. Now press Ctrl  and  C which is your copy command. Now you can go to your reply or post, make sure your cursor is inside your reply box, press Ctrl and V , this is your 'view' or 'paste' command. The code will appear there. If you want to check and make sure it is there, you will see a preview button to the bottom right of your reply box. Click that and a preview will appear above the reply box.
If you want to change or add any other text to your reply, just go back down to your reply box and type it in.

As a note, if you keep your code on a separate line from your reply, you'll never have to worry about accidentally corrupting the code.  O0

I know, plain as mud!  ;D   Let me know if you need any further clarification, hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more help.
Cheers, Val

When I highlight the code, the keyboard on my tablet does not appear. I also don't know what the control button looks like even if I was able to access it.  Sorry to be so ignorant concerning this tech stuff.   :thankyou: for your kind attention to my problem.

almost, what you are doing wrong is that you are clicking the image icon which you don't need to.

just past the smg code as is, the system will do the rest for you. So when you are typing your message, you will only see the smg code and not the image. The image will however show correctly when people view your post.

Try again, you are nearly there O0

now on to your rock drawing...

Great contrasts, well spotted :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
just the right hand rock - the right hand plane is too light, compare with your reference to see the difference in tonal value O0

great cross hatching, I agree :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

on the left hand side of the cup you have it nice and dark which is perfect. Fade this dark away slower to the right. This will make the cup look even rounder O0
