I would also recommend using the "Preview" feature before posting.  Gives you a chance to make sure things look right before it hits the forum.

Snowy,
Is there a way to rotate the image with this feature?  I had trouble with that earlier this week.

Hi Bums,

No way of rating integrated with the forum. http://www133.lunapic.com/editor/?action=rotate appears to do it for you. You'll have to upload it from there, then save it from there, then upload here afterwards...should take about a minute to do, not tooo bad.

OK. So now I know how to upload an image with a message, but I'm new to the forum and would like to add an avatar to my profile layout. How do you specifically post a pic as an avatar? Thanks!

^That should help people out wonderfully G.

Completely non related but just a thought that came to me from seeing that video.
What about a video of you or someone at IHUK showing people how to measure the Iron Heart way?
