Here attached, I hope, is a picture of my pen.

I have others if someone can let me know how to incorporate them in the message.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for sharing, very nice looking indeed. And I second the question for more pics :D.

Just one question: could you please resize the pics to a miximum width of about 800 pixels, so nobody needs to scroll too much?

Regarding incorporating pis in a message, you woudl need an imagehost first, a webserver that allows you to store pictures and images on the web. The easiest way to put up images here in that case, is by opening 2 browser instances, one with FPN, and one with the imagehost.

Start writing your message with the "Add Reply" or "New Topic" button, insert soem text, and when you want to insert a pic, switch to the browser with the image host, find the pic you want to insert, and copy the link or url. Then switch back to the browser with FPN, click the "IMG" button, and paste the link into the space reserved for it in the dialog box that pops up. You can do this up to 25 times in a single message.

BTW, the picture will be placed exactly in the spot where the mouse was when you clicked the "IMG" button, so if you misclick, and do it again, the picture will probably appear in a different place than you expected.

Oh, and a tip: do use the "Preview" option with pictures (except the Attach Image option; there it doesn't work), to see if everything is the way it was supposed to be.

Anyway, HTH, warm regards, Wim

Apologies for the size of the pic, I did reduce it and thought it might even come out too small! Here's another try, attaching to a Word file. Apologies if it doesn't work properly!

The pics without flash are more representative, not as sparkly as the flash pics show.

What a beauty, Greg! :drool:

I was going to ask you if the pen has gold or silver-like trims but since you say the flashless photos are more accurate, then I guess it means that the pen has gold trims. Is that right?

Hi, Grasshopper, no, I chose silver trim. Its not hallmarked though, like they to the cap band if you choose gold trim. The red whirls are more predominant on the back of the pen. Not sure if this is intended (doubt it), but I should have shown that - instead of repeating 3 of the photos!

Hi Greg,

Very nice CS indeed.

When posting pics try looking at the actual size on your PC first, (ususally most imaging software has this feature) then you can downsize the pic so that what you see gets posted. If you don't have anything to do this you can use MS Paint and use the resize funtion, although you will need to make it slightly smaller than it really is.
I hope this helps so that you can post more nice pics.

Nice pics! Maybe one day you'll do a complete review of the pen for us :D .
