i like the squirrel shot too. looks like he is about to bolt! i notice that the images that you post a bit on the small side. can you post a larger sized image so that the details can be examined more closely?

i will be happy to, hung . . . with some instruction. i post pics on another forum that have to be no larger than 500kb so that is what i go by. i re-size in ps cs2 reducing the pixels to 72 and using the inches guidelines to get the pic under 500kb. based on that method, can you tell me what size (in kb or mb) i can make the image? should i not reduce the number of pixels?

i have attached the squirrel pic at a larger size. is it fair to assume that the forum will give me an error message and not post a pic that is too large?

It is, but, while it is not always possible,I usually try to limit my images to 800 pixels in width or 550 in height, whichever is greater (at 72 dpi), so as to avoid the necessity of scrolling to see the entire image.

I like the squirrel, too. It looks like itmight have beendisturbed from a nap!

thank you.

actually, the squirrel was eyeing the peanut i was holding out to him. he started out on the trunk of the tree and was a little leery of approaching me for the nut. however, his need for nut won out and he came down and took the peanut from my fingers. i buy raw peanuts in the shell and only hold out the long ones so as not to get bit . . . altho' the doc says that it is very unusual to get rabies from squirrels.

here is a pic of him heading up the tree.
