Looks like they posted in reverse order. Maybe next time I'll try adding them in reverse order. If I can remember.

Marty, I know you can chose where to insert them to if you want to write a little about each photo in a process. I was goofing around with that when posting about the firepots. Maybe Darryl will do another how-to video for us.

If I spent more time here I might eventually get it. Hopefully next time ...

Everything on a computer can be changed....

Hopefully that is the order you wanted them in.

You can go to the "add attachment in line" and select the attachment and where you want it.
