Can someone give me a link to a tutorial on how to place the photos in specific spots such as side by side, centered etc.... I can't seem to figure it out by myself. Thanks

If you post a couple of pics in a forum, just put the resulting lightbox tags on the same line and they'll display side-by-side.

Ah! Okay, they came out one under the other but I copied & pasted the one from the bottom next to the top lightbox tag & this was the result. Thank you Dave!

You don't even need to copy and paste, just put your curser at the end of the first link and then delete the space until the second link pops up next to it. You can even do a third one, it will split the link on the post but it works so you have 3 images in a row. Any more than 3 and then you make people scroll sideways to read the thread and you will be ostracized and grounded. Blinking Big Grin

Actually, if you have a space between each lightbox tag, then you can have as many as you want in each row. It will automatically move the image down when it reaches the limit of the horizontal space.

That has been bugging me forever! I am so glad to know how to do it now! And if I want to put 3 in a row then on the next section just put one centered I can do that. Heh, heh, just you wait now. There'll be no stopping meeeeeeeee! (Getting in a Halloween mode/mood here). Ah Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha haaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

Hmmm ... "Upload an Image"
... sometimes a pause ...
"error on page"
then the partial post is delketed and I'm back at the head of the thread.

Could be IE, could be IT, or it might just be late in the day and time top go home.

I'll try again tomorrow, I have an 18-photo montage in mind for how I established drainage for a two-three-tier raised bed with sunken trench. Would 18 be too many for one post? I could easily split it into 3 posts of 6 photos each.

Probably for "Garden Structures" or "All Things Gardening". There is no forum for "Garden Corps of Engineers".

18 images in one post is just as fine as 6 images in 3 posts. It's all the same to the server.

I look forward to seeing it!

Dave, you didn't say there was any upper limit to the size of one post, so I thoguht I would give it a workout.

Here is the "before" - even weeds had a hard time. Like, were weren't any. Just rocks and clay. Note the slope,
Then, I invented mud. Water may run downhill, but once it meets pure clay, it stops running. <1 - 2 - 3>
.
Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/0376eb Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/169dc6 Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/8ddc8d


I trenched deeply, actually UNDER the lowest bed, where the mud puddle is now.
Then I ran a long trench the length of my driveway to drain down and away from there.
This lower bed drains the upper beds SOMEWHAT, and I sloped the floor of the upper beds down towards it. <4.5.6>

Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/3dac88 Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/fae04f Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/133fdc


I ran a trench the length of my driveway to drain the mud puddle. <7-8-9>

I like the idea of "filter cloth", whether it is really needed or not. <10-11-12>

Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/fc511f Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/60ae14 Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/1c6be7

For a big trench, the 3" pierced, corrugated drainage pipe is great.
It's infintly cheaper and lighter than an equal volume of drainage gravel. <13-14-15>

Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/d7ab24 Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/b56d80 Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/8b0e3e

Putting things back together, the drainage pipe runs UNDER the lowest bed, with more cobblestones and gravel, between it and the driveway.
In the next three shots, the camera pulls back and pans left until you can see the upper bed and the remaining juniper patch to the left. <16-17-18>

Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/e930c0 Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/47d06d Thumb of 2011-10-28/RickCorey/5c7f12


This allowed the clay to drain (or run off) even in our constant and sometimes heavy rain.
I removed a lot of clay and rocks, amended, bought two yards of topsoil, amended again, and turned deeply.
Now it drained well enough despite always needing more compost, and roots could go deep.

Now things will grow there, and NOT just weeds! <19-20-21> <22-23-24>

Much later, I removed more juniper bushes and extended another deep trench farther up, almost parallel to the driveway, downslope from and deeper the floor of the UPPER bed, draining it directly.

I laid gravel and paving stones on top of that as a sunken sidewalk. Now I don't have to bend over much to reach that upper bed. This wall is 16" high, being made of 8"x16" pavers stood the tall way. (Some day I plan to make a little half-height terrace here near where Toby-the-Cat sits, narrowing the walkway, widening the upper bed, and making it into two 8" levels).

The upper and lower trenches almost connect, but a little work remains to be done to connect them completely, before I turn the left-hand patch of juniper into yet another bed.

And the last shot is the low point, "Before Trenching" . <25-26-27>
