Hi Stevie,

Well the aquarium glass will have affected the image quality (IQ), but it's pretty good for a first post. Re. size I usually aim for about 800X600 pixels and set the file size

around 200 K/Bytes that gives a reasonable sized, and acceptable qualitypicture without the need to scroll to see everything. Large file sizes will load slowly for

members on dial-up, although I can't say how many will be affected by that. Hope this helps ... Jack

Thanks jachol. I will try to size my next post to those dimensions. I am sorry to all forum members that have difficulty with this size.

I sure am having fun learning. Thank's for all the help.

If you need pointers on most common pieces of photo software, just ask, someone here is probably using it. Shots through glass are tough, yours is not too bad. BTW, if no one told you, the default view on this board is a horrid white text on black background. You can change that by going to "My Account" -> Preferences -> and choose Default2 instead of Default for the style.

Not bad for a first shot and through glass. Looking forward to seeing more.

this is a a great opening shot
big
but good


you may be able to keep the exif data in the image too, depending on your software
some people find it useful, especially if you are after advice
