One thing you can do is link a photo to your marker. In the description use rich text and select the picture icon and then you need the url of an image to paste in

e.g

http://s3.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/profileimage/18291.jpg which is Busy-Lizzies profile pic usually you can right click on an image and choose copy image location. I've added a photo I posted a couple of days ago to my Pin on the map I've also changed the icon for my pin a little too.

 Busy-Lizzie you are on the map. If anyone else want's to be added just put in a request on this thread and someone will hopefully make a pin for you.

Swiss Sue do you have a town or village near by

Done it.  I'm now on the map. Brilliant idea Blackest

Its simplicity itself to add your balloon

Hi all, I am in Nairn, Scotland, lovely town.

13/05/2013 at 08:23

It's a brilliant idea  Even if Google wouldn't let me do my own (thanks Nut).

Thank you Blackest

Yay - I'm a blue balloon in Romsey. Took me a while to work out that you need to click on edit

What happens if you change your profile pic? Thanks for sending mine on that link. I don't always find computers easy, though doing this forum has taught me a lot, such as how to use "photobucket" which means now that the photos here won't enlarge and have white around them there is another way of getting round it.

Just looked at the map and I am on it. Fame at last! Thanks Blackest, I now know your Christian name too, unless it's a fake one!

13/05/2013 at 09:23

Could someone please add me, I'm in Tadley Hampshire.  Thanks

13/05/2013 at 09:36

Looking really good Blackest thank you. Nice to be able to see where people are.

I generally use Google Picasa web albums or Facebook , Picasa is my favourite since the site saves the image at full resolution. I wouldn't use Facebook if you could still link images to facebook.

Really I should be using one of my own sites, hosting and a domain name can be cheap (about €40 a year) I pay that any way.

If you change your profile pic the original link will remain on the map unless you edit it, or the image is removed from the server that is stored on (unlikely).

Nut - can you do me please?  Central Belgium, south of Brussels, so the I or U of Belgium on the map.   My link comes up in Flemish and won't change to English of French and I only do Flemish for restaurants and shopping..........

13/05/2013 at 10:07

OK obelixx, will do

13/05/2013 at 10:12

You're on obelixx, right between the i and the u of Belgium.

But I see WW is still on twice. Who should that member in Cornwall be? WW is in Hampshire.

This is great - but in a while if we don't keep an eye on it it'll disappear off the front page so we ought to remember to bump it up occasionally so new people can see it.

I think this has lots of useful possibilities - we're visiting Cornwall at the end of the month - now I know there are a few people in that area, perhaps a meet up for coffee at a congenial garden centre might be a possibility?

Sounds a good idea Dove.
