Gallery this month CLIMBING

We got quie a variety for this theme – thanks to everyone who contributed.

It takes a while for the Gallery to load, so look at the following selection while you wait (two real people climbing ladders as opposed to a rock climbing a ladder (front page):

First we have Mike Tomkinson climbing up to see the Harbourmaster, leaving the Danube, at the entrance to the Cernavoda canal into the Black Sea:

And this one is Ian climbing our Tan y Bryn roof, restoring the chimney :

And now for the Gallery:

The theme for August is HAPPY (smiles, laughter, playing .. whatever takes your fancy), so start thinking about that one – there should be lots of happy faces at the moment with the weather we have been having. Save your pictures as jpgs (see how below if you don’t know) and send to the address in the footer, marking your email “August Gallery – Happy”.

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.
