Amazing pic of Stoneyhurst college, how did you do that?

I use a little program called Irfanview

Fishy tale

Free of course -- very handy for altering photos, resizing etc

I made and saved a reverse image,[Horizontal Flip] then made a panorama of the 2 side by side

Posted by: cordyline (4137)   Report abuse
Also with Irfanview you can look at someone elses photo on the internet and see what camera they used and what date etc

From memory it was a tad fiddly to load but easy to use when sorted

I'm off to North Wales tomorrow so may not be able to post for a few days

I wondered how those pics worked.

Actually, what I was playing with was these two characters. I like the images and wanted to see them alongside each other.

Your pics, try the first one then the 2nd at the side of it not below
It's easy

Tried that it doesn't work
You could do it with
irfanview

look at the panorama thingy

Posted by: dustaf (inactive) Report abuse
I know Cordy

I put them on at 18:02

The reason I removed them was so as not to make this thread run slow. Also why I linked the pair in the previous post rather than do imgs.

I've put them (in all their glory) on Peawapps thread about Leigh.

Just learned soomething myself, Lizzie.

Usually when I put the address on, in this case http://i1342.photobucket.com/albums/o764/braeside5088/e4ce26af7218486a97b6777b23392261_zps3f4f7739.jpg

I don't use the quotation marks. " before and after "

You don't need them.

BUT:

If you are dictating a width, as mentioned on Cordy's first post, you need something between the end of the address and the

width=500 or whatever number/size you use.


So in this case I put the " in, just after the address

http://i1342.photobucket.com/albums/o764/braeside5088/e4ce26af7218486a97b6777b23392261_zps3f4f7739.jpg"width=500

Lizzie - I love your garden - it looks so natural.

What is the name of the trees at the bottom of the photo - there are four of them I think, very tall with drooping fronds?

I had never heard of a skink before - well done to you for rescuing it.

Fantastic pics Lizzie - they have made my day!

A beautiful sunny spring morning here, I'm making another start on the veggies after, and sorting out the last of the strawberries and then pruning the trees and bushes - having a bonfire tonight.

Hi Cordy.....it is a very old term used mainly in the country....
When we left England for South Australia....we stayed in Kadina...which is in the copper triangle at the top of Yorke Penninsular consists of Kadina, Wallaroo and Moonta....
We were only there for one school term....in that time I got used to the country language and 'cobber' was part of it....from the word 'cob' to take a liking to....so that is the gist of it all....🐨

I can't load straight onto WMM either I use Xilisoft , then I use Windows MM 6. I started with what I think was the original WMM and gradually had updates until the essentials package arrived which was rubbish now gone back to WMM6. I looked at the Vegas software and thought it looked very complicated.
