The current theme is Break.  Here are a few of your contributions:

Breakers – Susan Hanbury
A break in the wall – Caspar
Broken Bones 2000 years old – Caro
Broken cockle shells – Caro
A breaker - Cspar
A breaker – Caspar
A break in the weather – Caspar

Broken pottery found by Caro and later made into a picture (something for the children to do over the holidays?)

The next theme is SUMMERTIME. 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 “August 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.
