Susie fixed it, but I don't get it. The pixel size was smaller that what I used, but it came out bigger on the page? Also, the pic is a little dark on the one side, the original is not like that, I guess it was my scanner.

When you scanned you got all the empty space too.. When I checked the image size before cropping it was almost a 6x9 at 150 res.. I cropped it to a 4x6 at 130 res. When you scan, can you select the area you want scanned? Scanners can do funny things to pics.. I have a combo job that scans and prints.. The prints are great but the scanner sucks.. My scanner has a preview that shows me what is on the scanner bed. I will scan 3 pics at a time.. Then I select each print to import into my editing program. So they are scanned one at a time.

Some have entered one of each pet, some have entered a few of the same pet.. Suppose it doesn't really matter, only one will be choosen.. Very Happy

A couple of your favorites seems reasonable to me.. I have 2 cats and a dog.. I skipped the cats even though they are the prettiest cats you will ever see in my opinion.. Laughing We are hoping for nice quality pics as the winner will be posted on the home page.. Enjoy! It's all for fun and to get to know one another mostly...

This may be a good place to remind people they can have their own personal album too.. Smile I love browsing pictures.

I see some have started rating pics.. The poll has 7 for voting and 5 for rating.. We have until May 10th to decide.. Whichever is highest then is how we will decide on the photo contests.. I know we have more than 12 members... Anyone else want to help us decide?

Looks like we will be voting for photo contests.. I'm starting a new thread for the votes.. Just respond to that post to vote for your favorites in both contest.. Feel free to leave your comments or not.. Most votes for each catagory by the 17th will decide the winners.. We will see how we like it this way and possibly run the poll again for the next contests to get a good idea of how we will decide for the rest of eternity! Smile

Of course the Seasonal contest will continue with Summer pics and we need to decide what the catagory will be for the other one.. Any suggestions? I like having the opportunity to show off other pics besides Island related ones which the Seasonal one is reserved for.. Let the suggestions begin................
