January Gallery – Christmas

Thanks to those of you who sent in their pictures of the festive season. Here are a couple to keep you going while the Gallery loads:

Gerrit Forrester – St Davids Hospice Christmas fayre in Llandudno
A particularly special Christmas cake from Caspar Verney

And here is a Christmas reindeer from Mike Tomkinson, made entirely from recycled materials:

 And now for the Gallery:

You will see that some of the portrait pictures are not fully shown.  This is because it really is best to send either square or landscape shaped pictures – not too long and not too wide. Otherwise bits get cut off!

The theme for February is Valentines/love.  Please save your pictures as Jpgs (see how below if you don’t know) and send to the address in the footer, marking your email “February Gallery – Valentines”.

Saving as jpgs:

You should be able to do this as you save your photographs from your camera to your computer photograph files.  But if not, there are several free on line programmes that can do it for you.  Or you can use a very useful (free) programme called Gimp.  And another, called Paint, can do all sorts of other useful things with your pictures, like adapting the colour, shape, size.

What we cannot use is photographs that are embedded in the body copy of your email.  They must be jpg attachments.

Naming your photographs:

This is easy too.  When you have your jpg ready, before you pick it up to send, right click on it and you should find an option to “rename” – type over what is there your name and picture subject.
