Hello Kiwi.

I've just come in from being out.  Even if I didn't go out Tuesday, I'd have gone out tonight to avoid the wall to wall coverage of you know what.

In answer to your question...

a). The pictures are my own.  Unfortunately, a lot of folk get upset if you copy what they've had to go to all the effort to press a button to get.

b). I use XnView v1.97.8 Standard version (JPEG2000) - I download English Setup - to resize and crop my pictures as necessary.  It does far more than that and it's free.

c). I use Open Office Draw - part of the Open Office free programme from here to manipulate my pictures and add things like speech bubbles.  Part of the idea behind Open Office is to try and break the Microsoft monopoly and it's well worth downloading.

d). I'm using Windows 7 and use the snipping Tool for selecting a picture from the screen and saving it as a *.jpg file.  Open Office isn't all that brilliant at saving what's on the screen as a good quality picture.

Most of what I do has been done through trial and error and, because it's not been something I've ever done before, has taken me a long time to learn.  I don't mind admitting that where computers are concerned, I'm back at skoo and still learning.

If you need any further information, shout out.

Unfortunately I put my slippery legs on by mistake Denise (and went down like a sack of frozen chips).  The last furlong was hard work - the rest had been 'tyretracked' - but the walk was very enjoyable.

By the time I got up there Fudge I was as warm as toast (and breathless as a balloon blower at Christmas).  The problem with the wind was that it had caused drifts and I went up to my knees in it a few times.  In fact, there was hardly any snow at the pike - most of it had blown away.
