with NTL you have 50MB of free webspace and your personal webspace is found at:

http:/ / (without the spaces)

to upload to your webspace you need ftp software and all you need to do is install it and input your username and and the server info '' you also need to use the password you used when you signed up.

i use cuteftp Pro click here for a free trial. a basic but very functional free alternative is ftp explorer and this works very well click here

you can use the 'print screen' button on your keyboard to copy what you see on screen, paste it into 'microsoft paint' and save it as a jpeg and then upload it with either.

if you have paint shop pro or free irfanview image software installed then you have more control over the file size and can make it smaller for those on dial up to view. just like this click here

For screenshots, one usually finds that PNG format is smaller than JPG. As it is a lossless format, one also has none of the fuzziness associated with medium or low quality JPG images. The reason for this is that screenshots have large areas of uniform colour, which the PNG format compresses very efficiently. click here

Although this image is the same number of pixels as Huggy7's screenshot, it is only 62K instead of 248K.

However, for photos, JPG format is smaller than PNG. As a JPG the Kitten is only 110K, but as PNG it is 1,346K. Not everyone knows about the benefits of PNG so it is not as widely used as it should be.
