    Using the 'Img' key - press it once then enter the URL and press the 'Img' key again..
    not sure how you do this for images which are not derived from the internet, though..

    If you create an account with an image upload website such as photobucket, you should be able to upload the pic from your computer hard drive on to it and then post the URL it provides you onto this thread.

    Looks a bit like a tent web spider to me, does its web look like a tent?
    You'll probably get an answer quicker by googling spider databases.

    a suggestion from wildaboutbritain.co.uk
    "Looks like walnut orb web spider - Nuctenea umbratica"
    this could be it, although my friend said it was bigger than the maximum size of these, but i suppose what girl hasnt exagerated the size of a spider?
