Thumbs up Greetings from Doncaster, UK

I'm interested in landscapes and despite my age (68)I hope to visit some spectacular places before I peg it! I have to admit that I don't find all this digital stuff very easy and tend to take the long route to understanding techniques. I haven't a clue how to post photos except I'm also a member of one of those sites which provide you with a specially prepared, compressed file to post here I presume. Best wishes and good luck if you need it!

Re: Greetings from Doncaster, UK

My humble apologies for a rather poor effort with a mismatch of size and a blown out sky....I can do better....eventually! I used Flickr I think so back to the drawing board. Regards, mikqwik

Mike - I've had to break the link to your images as it exceeds our size limit of 1024 pixels on the longest side. I don't use Flikr myself, but there is a way to post Flikr images that conform as others do it.

If anyone does use Flikr to host can you post up how to link to smaller images please.

Re: Greetings from Doncaster, UK

Thanks dabhand and apologies for not conforming....confusion is my second name but I'll try to keep the size to less than 1000pixels....and lower of course. At the moment I feel as though I'm trying to engage second gear without quite understanding why...but I still have a few brain cells left and I'm looking forward to viewing my colleagues' work.

Re: Greetings from Doncaster, UK

Changed the link to point to a suitable variant

To do this just look at the various sizes that Flickr creates for you and choose the one that best conforms to Pixalo - e.g. 1024 on the longest side.

This image gives you the following link, which you can paste into an IMG item from the 'insert image' option in the Pixalo editor.

'https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7558/16105599566_7f23c131b5_b.jpg'

I cheated here to get your extra details into the post. If you click the 'share' icon on the page you will get a fully detailed share, but not necessarily the correct size of image. All you have to do then is to find the correct image size and look at the last letter before the '.jpg'. In your case this is 'b'. The detailed link I got contained an 's' which I just swapped for the 'b'. You will have more privileges to change things on your own Flickr photos.

Alternatively you can always post your photo directly into the pool in Pixalo .

Oh, and Mike .

Re: Greetings from Doncaster, UK

Many thanks Graham. Your explanation is excellent and if I can find how to print it (Control P?), I'll keep a copy for future reference. Thanks again for your efforts on my behalf.

Hello and welcome Mike

Very nice perspective on the pier - regardless of the sky.

Re: Greetings from Doncaster, UK

Thanks very much Chrisa. Your comments much appreciated. It took several attempts to get the pier shot to mesh together accurately so I was delighted when I finally succeeded!
