Sometimes the gallery takes a little while to load. Be patient!
This month’s theme is STORM – a good one it seems as we had a lot of great shots of some of the winter storms we, and others, have been encountering. Her we had just ONE pictures for the Sleep theme (were you all hibernating?) we are giving over the Gallery to some of your lovely Rhoscolyn and Four Mile Bridge pictures that didn’t quite make it to the calendar – and it was a very difficult choice, as you will see from some of those shown here.
While you wait for the Gallery to load, here are a couple of “after the storm rainbows”:
Awaiting the storm, by Caspar Verney:
And now for the December Gallery:
The next update will be January for which the Gallery theme is, topically, CHRISTMAS – shouldn’t be too difficult! Please make your pictures landscape, horizontal, or even square. Portrait shape is very difficult to manage on the gallery as the top or bottom tends to get cropped.
Always save as jpgs please and mark you email “December Gallery – Christmas”.
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.
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.
