    Here is one method from 2little2late

    Register with photobucket.com
    You can then upload photos of your choice.
    In your photo album under each photo there are three links:-
    Url
    Tag
    Img

    Copy the Img link. Go back to message board and paste the link in your reply, this automatically downloads photo without have to follow the link.

    Also, for large photos, I have found that before uploading them into photobucket, resize them first. Open photo you wish to upload. Right click, then open with microsoft photo editor. In photo editor go to image, then resize. Whan the resize box appears I always resize the pixels rather than measurements. I find that resizing a photo to 1000 pixels is just the right size for the photo to be uploaded onto photobucket. Then when it appears on the message board the photo isn't too big.

    Hope I haven't made this seem confusing.
    Good luck.

    OH please trinkie, I would so like to see some pics of wick and wickers from the olden days. I love the Thurso ones.

    I was delighted to see in the first section a photo of BB Captain Jack Budge. Jack is still going strong in Bayview Nursing Home Thurso - he's well into his nineties now.

    Some great photos in from Mr Bews... many thanks.
    I remember your father well - and a lovely man he was too.
    Mr Caldwell of Wick Junior Choir fame is among them and many other faces I remember.

    How many of the young Boys Brigade are still around and looking into caithness.org I wonder?

    Great pictures.

    It's my father that's MR Bews
    I'm still just ee meenester's son!

    He and Mum are still on the go and met up with a number of Wickers a couple of weeks ago at the sad occasion of Margaret Youngson's (Budge) funeral.

    Nothing more recent, but here he is a couple of years ago:

    Anyone know of any photos of the houses that used to be at Wick airport in the early 1960's?

    Love all the old pics of Wick, being an "oldie" I found it quite nostalgic.
    Imagine my surprise when I saw my Mum's photo in the Herring Quines picture of south view 7s. I am sure it was Sinclairs Yard of Lower Poultney(used to be near the saw mill and beside the old boat yard) to the right of the Service bridge if my old memory serves me right. I was just so pleased to see her.
