I've never asked a question on the forum - what should I include to get a great answer?

Make sure you've added your location so people can refer you to local 356 resources (see above for step-by-step instructions)
Include the year and model of your car, such as '62 Roadster S90
Make your Subject Line specific - Write "Brakes Pull to the Left", not "Need Help"
Give some background to your problem - "Ever since I got my car back from the body shop, the turn signals don't work ... "

But by all means, ask! There are hundreds of experts looking at the forum.

How to Post a Photo on 356Talk (by Barry Brisco)

When making a post on 356Talk, below the large white "Message body" text window and below the "Submit" button is the "Upload Attachment" area.

Click the "Browse" button to the right of the "Filename" box.
Attachment:

Browse your computer's hard drive and select the photo file you want to post. After you select it, that file name will show in the "Filename" box. Click the 'Open' button.
(This can be the hard part - you must know the file location on your computer of the picture you want to post)

If you wish, enter a text caption for the photo in the "File comment" text box.

For any photo file you can select "Place inline", meaning it will insert the photo wherever you place the text entry cursor.

How do I insert an AVATAR in my profile?

An avatar is the small stamp-sized photo that you see on the left hand side of many members' posts. The avatar is a very small (125 pixels x 125 pixels) image. Virtually any photo you have in your collection is larger than this size, so it has to be resized to the small format. Not to worry, there's a utility on the internet to do it for you - go figure!
Read the entire contents of this post first to get an overview of how to accomplish this simple task.

The picture above is Jack's existing avatar. We're going to replace it, but it's the same process for adding one from scratch.

Step One - find the picture you want to make into your avatar. Note - this will not alter your original picture.
Take note of the file location of the picture on your computer, because you're going to have to find it again in the next step.
Attachment:
image[1] (2).jpg
image[1] (2).jpg [ 1.04 MiB | Viewed 8958 times ]

Here's the picture we'll make into an avatar. You'll see that the picture is over 1 MB in size - way too large for an avatar as is.

Step two - resizing the picture
Go to this website - click the link

http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

Here's what you'll see after clicking the link. Hit 'Browse' to find the picture you want to resize. Change the Avatar Size to 125. Hit 'Resize' - be patient.
Attachment:

After clicking "Resize", you will get 3 choices - pick the one you like the best and download it to your desktop so you can easily find it.

Follow the instructions after you hit the 'Download this picture Now' - Give the file a name you'll remember and Save it to your desktop so it's easy to find for the next step.

OK, now that you have the image for your avatar, it's time to place it. Make sure you're Signed in to the 356 Registry site, and click 'User Control Panel'
You can double click on the image below to see a bigger view.

If all was successful, you will see an image of the new avatar
