problem posting photo
I see you posting juuuuuuuuust fine.
s'funny - when I was in Wpg, I couldn't grow cosmos, but a neighbour of mine grew them about 6' tall!
I haven't tried growing them in Calgary, though.
oooooooooh I love your pansy - what's the name of it? It's a beautiful deep red........I just love it....!!!
Then your eyes are worse than mine, because the bottom portion of the pic won't come through.
echoes, what software or program do you use for your photos? What flower is that lovely deep red?
I have an old version of Paint Shop Pro that I use for cropping and putting text in a photo. I don't usually do much else. Once in awhile I may re-size or lighten something.
The dark red flowers are Salpiglossis, 'Chocolate Royale'. Painted Tongue is the common name and most varieties have lots of shading/veining in them.
If you go to Google, then "More", and choose "photos" you can d/l a prog called Picassa. It's free, and I've been using it for several months. I highly recommend it.
You can make collages, etc, and it's got a lot of features in it.
echoes, I heard that Piccasa is a good one and 'free' would make it great! I think you can get Adobe Photoshop7 free and it's a great program too. ;o)
I'll be looking for that flower and hope it will grow in my part of the country. Its gorgeous!
Jo - I had Adobe Photoshop and the "trial" ended, so I don't think it's free.
Another DGer recommended Picassa, and I'm glad she did! Makes posting a bunch of pictures at once, so much easier when you have a collage.
Well you feel free to talk amongst yourselves. I am not looking for another photo editing program. I have several really good ones besides the PSP 5 available, but hardly use them. Also I am quite happy with the way I have my photos organized in my own folders.
The test thread was to test a photo that I was having trouble posting in my journal. It wouldn't load all the way. So I came here and tried it and then another photo, which loaded without a problem. It was never about editing.
This is a good discussion you are having, but perhaps would get more traffic in another forum?
BTW, Picasa is not for me, but thanks for the suggestions.
s'ok Echoes - there's really nothing more to say, is there :-)
