April Fools Gallery

Not such a good topic it would seem, although those we did get were good and creative – this one from Mike Shaw shows him being dined out of the 3rd Regiment, RHA, at a “Medieval Banquet” in June 1977.  He is on the left, dressed as the Court Fool:

The two May themes are SHY/SHYNESS and RED – over to you – 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 “May Gallery – Shy or Red”

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:

Try and do this if you can – it really is easy and is extremely helpful to me as the last thing I want to do is credit someone else with your pictures!  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 with your name and picture subject.
