Get a child to show you how, then write down the instructions and save. Works for me. :D :D :D :D

Is it possible to send pictures in PMs? That doesn't look so straightforward?

No.  You'll either need to link to the photo or revert to good old email.

How is with downsizing my pics on a Mac?
Irfanview doesn't seem to be made for OSX.

Open ear for advice, thanks, Hein

Hein - you could use the online tool I described in the first post of this thread -

Quote
Finally, you can do the job online - an easy to use tool is at http://www.picresize.com/.  After uploading your photo(s), press the Continue button and using step 2, Resize your picture and select the Custom Size option from the drop down menu. Set width to 800 and make sure you change the setting from percent to pixels!
In step 3, select JPG quality to Good - NOT 'Better' 
Then on the next screen 'Save to disk' to save the resized photo back to your computer.  It should be around 100KB and ready to attach to your post! 

Alternatively, the OSX 'Preview' tool will do the job for you as Stefan suggests - more info here

You seem to have managed OK - it was interesting to see your photos of the TMR installation!
