The current theme is Summertime and lots of you have obviously had a good one!  Here are a few of your contributions to whet your appetite while the Gallery tape loads:

Strange seal – Caro
3 happy mermaids enjoying themselves before the raft race at Conwy’s RNLI open day – Gerrit
Waves at Porth y Garan Rhoscolyn – Fenton Hanbury

Now for the Gallery:

The next theme is EXPRESSIONS, which can be facial (human or animal); cartoons; or anything else that takes your fancy for this theme. Please save your pictures as Jpgs (see how below if you don’t know how) and send to us using this link: click here marking your email “Expressions Gallery.” (See the contact page if the link doesn’t work for you)

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.
