Hmm, well I've put a few photos on there but couldn't work out how to het the link on here.
I got it to generate a link but it was massive, so figured it must be wrong.
Anyway, if you go on just put PORSHIEPOO in the search part and it'll bring em up - hopefully! lol.

Thanks for a great site Rheghead, perhaps you know what I'm doing wrong?

Great piccies you guys!

Look under your pics in Photobucket. There are 3 lines. Choose the top one...it says "url". Right click on it and choose "copy". Open a reply box in this thread and click on the photo icon (The yellow rectangle with what looks like a couple of mountains) and a wee box comes up. Right click in that and choose "Paste" from the list, then OK. Wait until the whole photo comes up and then click on "Submit". Have a go. Your photos are lovely....I'd love to see them on here!

How about resizing your images before uploading them to your host?

Here is a photo which I like, though I wish I'd framed it better and taken it with a better camera. It's in Dunnett Forest.

It's the Moss Monster!!! :)

No it's just a game they play sometimes, a bit like King of the Castle. They arn't all that high, they could easily jump down without hurting themselves.

Altho we see some scenes like this every day we tend to take them for granted sometimes.....it's really nice to remind ourselves of the beauty of Caithness.

What fantastic photos!

Fred's goats and dry comments got me laughing so hard, I nearly fell off the seat.

Still can't download ours onto this forum though. When I click the Post Reply button, there are no bold/italic/photo options, just a box with the org links at the top, another title box for General..., the Reply to Thread box, Additional Options (scant choice) and the Topic Review. Oh, and some smilies put in somewhere to make up the numbers.

Have I missed anything? Is it anything to do with Internet set up?

Still, here's a link to some of our photies on Photobucket:

This may help you resize images.

There are whole forums devoted to this sort of enquiry, but I am no expert. However, if you are an expert then you can manipulate the settings on your camera to suit the lighting and subject without much bother.

If you are like me and basically clueless, then I would recommend a camera which has preset options to various situations that you want to photograph eg. Sunsets, fireworks, beach, snow, indoor, flourescent lighting etc etc. You just select the scene type and shoot, and the aperture and shutter speed is optimised.

Resolution is nothing to worry about but I would recommend >5mega pixels, you would struggle to buy anything less these days.

I would also get a camera that takes regular AA or AAA batteries as you can always put rechargeables in and if they run out then you can put dispoables in afterwards so you are not stuck on holiday without a camera.

Anything else with a camera is just added frills.:p

It depends alot on budget really....one of the main requirements for digital
though, is Mega-Pixels....The digicam I use is just a cheap thing that I got off ebay that you could now buy for about 50 and has up to a 6MP resolution......I also use a 35mm SLR for real photography, not digital imaging.
For Digital cameras, check this site out <a href=http://www.dpreview.com/>
HERE</a> then have a nose around ebay for a bargain! (You can get some good SLR's there for under 10 there too!)
Hope you find what you want :)Thanks very much, greatly appreciated!! :)

Another thing to watch out for is Digital Zoom v's Optical Zoom. The former is next to useless, while the latter gives you the option to zoom in and get either a close-up shot, or pick out a distant object, without comprimising on the picture quality.

I'm on my 2nd generation Fuji Finepix camera and have found that they are easy to use and produce a great picture.

As mentioned by Kaishowing it's worth paying extra to get a decent size memory card so you can take plenty of shots at higher resolutions.

Gus your cat.s gorgeous.Is she /he blind in both eyes,or only the one thats discoloured.:confused: There's something about that type of cat that i find amusing.I.m not a cat person but that type i could be persueded.Is it a tabby?:o)

Gus
07-Mar-06, 02:08
Thanks Cuddlepop!

That's Wendy the tabby - so called because she was found (and susequently rescued) with 8 kittens in a child's wendyhouse in Kent. 10 years later, she apparently has some kind of degeneration of her kidneys with blindness as a side-effect. She is stupid beyond belief, completely food-orientated, soft as pudding and has ousted Gus from his bed.

This, however, is Mr Figgis Alistair McGoo. He is a thinking person's cat: clever, thoughtful (he likes to leave the eyeballs of the rabbits he's caught rolling around the kitchen floor of a morning), adventurous, he comes when whistled, he learns, and most importantly, he loves his mummy....

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/manni234ks/ThisTuesdayMorning002.jpg

Who's allergic to both of them!

The night photos were taken using a tripod and timed exposures ranging from a second to 15 seconds. I think those were between 2 and 8 seconds if I remember correctly.

Was set up at the hill at the Hospital and got chased as a patient thought me and my mate were 'stalkers'!

Shame really as the bridge street shot could be a little bit better....

Another form around that time, this time a macro shot of a fly on a tree trunk (dont know why it looks like the moon....), taken with the A95 digital compact on Macro setting.

Took this sunset pic in Feb 2003 with my frst digital camera - a Fuji S304. Taken at Bilbster.

Printed it out at A4 and had it framed as housewarming presents for two people.

Hi, it's been done using camedia master version 4.2. Got the software with my Olympus camera.
Although it isn't the pro version.

Last one....honest. :)

Took this a couple of years ago, again with the Fuji S304.

Really liked the water droplets, the glare from the sun and just enough of DJR to see him squint his face.....

Correct.
Another question.
What is the history behind this lintel? As can be seen the inscription on it J. Levick Heriots hospital 1874.
