Great work, Charlie....next time put some spaces between the photos ( use the enter key) so you have room for the written directions.

You can also hit "PREVIEW POST" prior to posting it. That way you get to see how it's gonna look when you DO post it and if you don't like it, edit it.

You hit the "ENTER" button here in FTE, not in PhotoBucket. All you will see here is the URL to PhotoBucket. Hit the "ENTER" button as many times as spaces you want
