Help! This computer illiterate BBI resident would like to develop my Gallery. How do I post pictures? If it requires standing on one leg or reciting an ancient incantation BACKWARDS I'm game.

click on albums at the top of the page
go to bottom of albums and click on users personal galleries

...you forgot the part about hopping up and down on one leg, it won't work unless you do that. Razz

#Rofl I thought with all the other contortions Shelby was willing to go thru that the hopping up and down was a given! #jumping Good luck, Shelby, don't hurt yourself..

Smile Shelby, take it from a rookie like me you can do it ,because after all i finally did it. (with all the help coming from als sister) It will take a few tries and you may get lost. My jumping around part came when i finally figured it out. Yeah!!! And by the way what an outstanding looking B.&B. (From your website) Regards, Kevin ) Smile

What a great support team! Matter of fact that word Support sums up how I feel about this web site. No weak links in this chain. The support one gets from members shines through like a laser, a beacon of light. I may throw Google out and just rely on the BBI crowd.

Thanks again.

Folks, how do I address this problem? All of my picture files appear to be either corrupt or too large. First time I've ever been accused of corruption. Judge, if that's the charge I plead ignorance. That's my fall back position so sue me! Could it have been something I did? You know, inadvertently? Do I toss the computer and start fresh or can it be decorrupted? My computer and I, we're at the mercy of the court. We await your judgement.

I'm really committed to boring you with my pictures, but this is getting pretty frustrating.

Help!

Shelby,

e-mail a couple of your corruptions so I can have a look at them. Perhaps I can shed some light. I want to see those boring pictures. Laughing I especially want to see an alpacha or two (I'm sure I murdered that spelling).

Do what Rob says.. Very Happy I bet you need to resize your pictures though..

780 x 520 at 130 resolution will make a nice quality 6 x 4 print and is the right size for a quick upload to the internet... Most photo editing programs will ask for pixels for resizing. Notice that the larger pixels are for the long side of the pic.. For a 4 x 6 (vertical) you would put in 520 x 780. Create a copy of the original to edit it for size first.

OR

If you have Windows XP you can download a neat power tool from the Windows site. The power tool has a resizer that is quick and easy to use.. When you get the resizer, all you have to do is right click on the pic, click resize picture, and then a window will pop up asking for the size you want. Click smallest and you will get a copy of the pic in a smaller version for uploading.

Hope this helps, Shelby. Very Happy
