Jim, I have copied the following instructions from another post I wrote yesterday to reply Daniel's one and I paste them here for you. Hope this will help.

To post a picture you simply have to select the CLICK HERE TO UPLOAD AN IMAGE link next to the PREVIEW POST botton after entering POST REPLY.

Then, a FILM TECH page will open. Skip all instructions and get down to the THIS IS NOT FOR UPLOADING PICTURE TOURS note.
Enter your data (username, password) and select the folder where the file you want to upload is.

Click now SUBMIT and wait for a while. Be sure the size is not too big (not more than 550 pixel-200k). If it is, a window telling you to reduce it will appear. After doing that, and if the size of your file is ok, a window will open showing you the image preview and a URL code. Just copy and paste this code to the post and add the reply.

Your post will be edited including all uploaded pictures.
Just try.
Ciao.

[Frown] In this case contact Jeroen. I know he had a similar problem but I'm sure he finally solved it as I've seen he recently posted some screen shots.
Hope he will be in a postion to tell you what he did.
I never had any problem in posting pictures, so I cannot say...

Oh, a question: do you type your password or do you copy and paste it from another source, when getting to the THIS IS NOT A PICTURE TOURS note and you have to enter your data?

I asked you about typing your password because a couple of times I had copied and pasted it from the mail I had to confirm my subscription to the Forum. And the log-in to post pictures did not work.

Jeroen is a member here on the Forum: jeroen-van-ooyen (at) hotmail (dot) com
Try to contact him. At leat he would tell you what to do. As already stated in my previous post, he had the same problem some weeks ago.
Ciao.

If I remember right, when typing in your User Name, you must use Capitals where needed....i.e in my case 'Martin Jones', not 'martin jones'.

I don't need another hot splicer but does it get warm after you plug it in? Just curious...

(also curious why they are called hot splicers when they only get a little warm [Razz] )

They're called hot splicers because they set the splice almost immediately. This is very important if you're working in a lab and splicing negative together. Waiting 30 sec or so for a splice to set is just too long.

For a real fast splicer see the Bell & Howell pedal splicer where you move the left and right sides with foot pedals and only have to scrape and apply cement. These are/were the workhorse splicers in labs.

If it is like the M&H hot splicer you plug it in and let it warm up for a bit. Then lift one side or the other and lock the film into the other side. Lower the side that is raised to trim the film. Once that is done, it works like a regular cement splicer except faster. You use the scraper to remove the emulsion (assuming the emulsion is facing up and on the left side) apply a drop or so of cement on the film you scraped and lower the other side. A few seconds later it is dry and you are done. Make sure that you have a nice edge on the scraper too. [Wink]

I rarely use cement splices since most of my splicing is done with new, polyester based film which of course tape splices must be used.
