My turn to say hello



My turn to say hello from West Yorkshire.

I plan to retire soon and was going to buy a DSLR as a retirement present. Then I realised that I may just as well buy it early and get more use out of it. Also buying it (Canon 40d) from a wage is easier than from a pernsion !!. Now off to find some advice about a zomm lens for inscet protography.

One of my staff lives there - said the water was two feet from the tops of the local goal posts. I'm in Southowram but work in Batley.

Hi

Insect photos - Get a 100mm Canon Macro or 90mm Tamron Macro if that's the stuff you want to take, unless you want to only have to carry one lens, then get a good 24-200ish zoom with a macro factility on it.

In 'User CP' you'll see "Edit Avatar" on the LHS. There you can upload your own avatar

There are size restrictions, but there are two conflicting sets of restrictions :

1. In the 'Edit Avatar' screen it says "Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels or 9.8 KB (whichever is smaller)." But ...

2. In the 'General-Rules-Signature-Avatar Guidelines" thread it says "You may select a personalized avatar of no larger than 100 x 100 pixels and a file size of 8kb or less."

Please could Crew confirm which is correct?

Thanks for spotting that one Charlotte. We have now standardised the Avatar size to 100 x 100 pixels and 10kB.
