I just wanted to make clear which picture it was that I had a question about, you will note that I left all the others out...
Sure. But you can leave the [ IMG ] tags out then, so it remains as a link.
It's so annoying to have all those image quotes around SSC...
Totally spoiling fantastic threads like this one.
