Top Ten Fantastic Fountains

The Banpo Bridge fountain at 1140 meters long (approx. 3740 ft.) is the worlds longest fountain. It has 380 nozzles that pump out 190 tons of water a minute. 220 lights in a kaleidoscope of color garnered it the name of Moonlight Rainbow Fountain.

Re: Top Ten Fantastic Fountains

as Gary said
first the image has to be on another site, not your machine, then on the Icons at the top of the entry box, middle row, 2nd from left button, that gives you two [. img][/img.] you then paste the location of the image between the middle two ][  done, the image size ect is put in by the program usually, if it is on your own machine you have to use the additional options below the entry box and attach

Re: Top Ten Fantastic Fountains

pttt://images.travelpod.com/users/flyin_bayman/castles_beer-06.1146618000.chatsworth_house_-_fountain.pgy
note I have mucked up the jpg and the http bit at each end so that you can see it, then you click on the second from left button on the middle line and paste it there, not that hard really

Re: Top Ten Fantastic Fountains

Steve literally put [ img ] at the beginning then for example put Http://www.imageshack.us/picture.png then straight after that put [/img] and it will display the picture your linking to on the forum, you can upload your own pictures here Http://www.imageshack.us
Note the [img] doesn't have ANY spacing, I just had to do that or it would have tried to display my typing as a picture lol.
