  5. Hi mark

    sorry to get in touch again

    on the club site I tried to put an example  picture album on and need to remove it as it did not turn out as I wanted.

    don't see any remove or delete album anywhere.

    I am due give a  presentation  to our committee and members on Tuesday .

     

    I wanted to try it out so I can brief  them on the use.

    thanks
