Special Thanks to DnvFox

I am amazed.
For many hours I tried to post a high resolution picture of Darrel's Last Ride. I finally gave up and asked DnvFox for help. This is Friday night. Within minutes here is the picture in all its glory.
Thanks Denver.
For those of you not in the know:
Darrel Was a Cross Country Tour member. He was a very strong and muscular biker. I know because I biked with him for hundredths of miles. On the fatal day he set the goal to arrive at his destination ahead of everybody and he did. He had time to greet his Grandchildren and Family. He died in his sleep at age 53 of causes not known to us.
Another Tour member, Sandra, suggested a Biker motive Memorial. Another member pointed out that another Biker by the name of Conrad is an Artist in Sculptures. We asked Conrad and he responded with this Sculpture and insisted to do it free of charge. This is my contribution to all these people.
Darrel and His Wife represent to me much of what middle class Americans are all about.
You can read more about all this on this thread:

Greetings from Fast across America South Tour

It was my pleasure.

I will never tell how I did it!

Unless you ask.

Nothing that the rest of you don't do regularly.

Will's file was 617,000 bytes, and about 2,350 pixels wide.

I opened it with irfanview.com (available free on the internet)

I resized to a width of 850 pixels (this just fits the screen well), being sure to check the "keep perspective"

I saved it as a jpg file, at 75% compression, with the new size about 100K

I then uploaded it to one of my web sites, and linked to it from the post in Will's thread.

I was afraid to ask and next have to admit you are over my head.

I will e-mail the last page of that thread and that beautiful picture to anybody I know. That will get Darrel and the Artist some exposure.
Let us assume that it is all for the best.
