The first bumble bee of spring.....or I sincerely hope so,as I am not good at attaching photos.
If I succeed, you should see a lovely photo of a bumble bee emerging from one of my crocuses covered in saffron!

Can't attach the photo, am going back out to the garden in frustration.......believe me it was a fabulous shot, and as soon as I can get some help from someone, preferably under 30, I'll post it. I suspect the nearly-five-year-old grandson will soon be earning pocket money from me!
Apologies.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with the picture attachment facility Sive.
aybe the picture you are trying to attach are too big.
Its not totally the case of the pictures being too big in size ie. dimensions/ height by width, but it is a case of the filesize containing all the info to create the pic being too large.
This commonly happens if pictures are taken on cameras with a high megapixel count.
With our attachment facility anything larger than 256 kb will be rejected.

If taking pictures specifically for the site, you could reduce the megapixel count on your camera if you wish.
Aside from that here are just a few other ways to resize your pictures without cropping them.......

Method (1) Without installing anything extra provided you have "Paint" as part of your windows package.

Right click on the picture you wish to "shrink".
Then left click EDIT on the menu that appears.
If you have "Paint" installed this should now take you to that package.

You will then see your image sitting in the editing panel.

Left click the IMAGE button at the top of the screen, then left click STRETCH/SKEW from the drop down.
In the panel that appears you will see the stretch dimension on the horizontal and vertical are set to 100%.
Alter both the horizontal and vertical to your needs, say for example try 50%.
Left click OK and your image is reduced.

Finally left click FILE followed by SAVE AS to allow you to save the image under whatever name you wish, preferably some different to the original file name to prevent you overwriting your originals.

Method (2) Use Microsofts Image Resizer
Info about it: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/digitalphotography/learnmore/tips/eschelman2.mspx
Down load link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe
.
.

Method (3) Use PIXresizer - Free Image Resizer
Info on, with download link near bottom of page: http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm

Any other questions or comments, just ask.


I'm going to add this info to the How do I post pictures? tutorial on the site. Smile

Thank you so much GPI. When I recover from a few hours of gardening, I'll have a good look at all the instructions, and try again.
