You are absolutely correct of course. And I had tried this but had the 
same results.

But what I didn't realise was that I was using the site's (picpaste) 
viewing facility incorrectly! :-( . Now that I have figured out how to 
use it correctly, I can see my uploads as they should look :-) .

Thanks for stirring up my "little grey cells" (or what's still left of 
them) :-) .


If nothing happens, nothing can go wrong.
