Hmmm I thought I did this correctly but I don't see my pic. Are the beads Gods trying to tell me something?:D

Two mistakes I made at first:

1. File too big. If it's over 100K it won't post.

2. If you do "Preview Reply", it will blank out the attachment file name and you'll have to browse and reselect it.

Try again - I wanna see! B2 :)

Nonie,
A lot of times people do not crop the image, thus making the file way to big. If there is a lot of space between the subject matter and the frame of the image, crop everything beyond the image.

Those look great, Nonie. Love the colors.

Pic may have gotten fuzzy when you cropped. I'm using a Mavica FD-90 and I was shooting with the highest resolution - going with my "more is better" philosophy - but then I had to do major cropping and then the pics were fuzzy. Changed to 640X480, which I had always heard was fine for Internet (but not for photo quality printing). MUCH better - once I crop the image for composition, I generally have a file size that's fine for posting.

72 pixels per inch is all that is needed for the internet. Any more is just wasted. Photo resolution for printing should be at about 200 pixels per inch.

Thanks all! What happened exactly is when I cropped it, it got fuzzy. Great tips for posting pics!

You might try a different image manipulation program...

I have had decent success with a program called IRFANVIEW...

It's free and available for download on the web...
