Hello Viviane

That's really strange! It appears that you're seeing the new picture, but when I log on to my overview home page, I'm still seeing the old mug-shot. What can be happening??

personal photo/avatar

Hi tecchies

Is it me, or is there a problem changing one's personal photo/avatar on the Overview page? I've done the usual: opened the "edit profile" dialogue box, deleted the current photo,...

Hello Paul
You're right: the music comes from adverts. The latest was an ad for Durex (!), also E45 handcream. I took a screen shot, but can't work out how to include it in this message. This...

Music

Hi Tecchies

Twice in the last couple of days when I've been surfing around TE, music (quite loud and intrusive) has started up, unbidden by me. It's not from another opened internet page on...

To PaulVDV: Private

Hi Paul

No: you can't get onto the island, unless you're a (high-paying) "guest". There are gates and guards, though they are probably called "meet-and-greeters"!

Scanning

Hello Gert

Thanks for your reply. Just for the record, here's a copy of a forum post I made a few months ago:

Over the months, I've posted many old film (transparency and print) originals, and...

Hi again Elvira

Your English is perfect: taught it is! By the way, I failed "O" Level German: the only exam I ever failed... By the way again, your surname sounds quite English...

Wink churchill

Hi John

Again, and of course, you're quite right. I was conscious of the ironic Churchillian reference! Apparently (you have probably heard this before), another of his witticisms involved him...

Wink postcards

Hi Elvira

You and me both! I'm sure we all want to take images of famous, iconic places: it would be daft to go to Venice and come back with no photographs of Piazza San Marco! I've got my fair...

Yes I'm in agreement too. For a start, the size of images on this site are relatively small: I wouldn't bother stealing an image that was only around 3mpg (all mine are saved as 100mg 16 bit-depth...

Points

Here, here! Points don't mean prizes! I absolutely endorse Klaudio's view, and note that at least one of the Moderators is in agreement. This site is in danger of becoming meaningless, as witness...

Hi tecchies,

What's happened to the Edit button on critiques? The problem was highlighted by Gert Holmertz several days ago, but it hasn't been fixed, and apart from a reply saying it was a...

Resizing

Hello John and Gert

Sorry to butt in! With reference to John's comment about resizing: I'm confused. These days I tend to post images that are 920 pixels tall; that's around 1380 pixels wide for...

To Royaldevon: Negative impression

Hi Bev

I didn't really have such a negative impression: it's just the pretentious claptrap I come out with to fill out the notes!

Hi Gilles
I see we are both b/w (n/b) fans. I used to teach darkroom techniques, so am very familiar with the Zone System. I still use a version of it in Photoshop. In Levels, you have a 0 - 255...

the Dark Side

Hi Gyorgy

I agree about the Dark Side, and often deliberately under-expose by 1/2 stop. But exposure and saturation aren't the same thing!
