They have a neat little image editor that will let you resize, crop, color balance etc, etc a photo. It's free, it's small and it works.

No, not too bad. Hope it heals well for you.

Try saving your pics in the .JPG format. The file size/image size ratio is much smaller as illustrated below. Same image, the one in BMP format is 26.4 kB while the JPG is 2.8 kB... about 10 percent the file size of the BMP with no loss of quality.

Surely the mods would have something to say about this and getting your patootie modded isn't something one should aspire to.

Well, roughly speaking you've just demanded pictures of her rear-end. I was under the impression that such graphic nudity was frowned upon by the mods for some unknown reason.

Roughly speaking, you havent been following the flow of the conversation, have you? Or, have you just failed to comprehend its nuances?

I said: "So march yer patootie over there, get the camera and take a snap PRONTO!!!"


Let's break this down, and I'll type slow so you can follow along...

A) The discussion has been recently about her belly button piercing and reluctance to show a picture thereof. You're still with me, right?

B) I said: "So march yer patootie over there, get the camera" Translation: Get up off your chair and get the necessary piece of photo electronic equipment with which to capture and reproduce said image.

C) I then go on to say: "and take a snap". Translation: Use said piece of photo electronic equipment to capture and reproduce an image of aforementioned belly-button piercing.

D) I fianlize my sentence with the word "PRONTO". Translation: Don't waste time in obtaining and using said piece of photo electronic equipment to capture and reproduce an image of the aforementioned belly button.

Capice?

Why is it that the only person to have a problem with the english language is a bloody limey?

I didn't have a problem following it, however if she wants to take a picture of her patootie then personally I have no problem with it.

I never said that I had problems of pictures of patooties, I merely suggested that Stacey not involve herself in incitement to nudity.

Now she thinks I don't understand her "English". Not surprising if she's going to be littering it with Italian. Or maybe I was befuddled by looking at shikaka's belly button, it is quite breathtaking.

I did have one person on my list a while back, but took them off within a week. I found myself clicking on their posts to read them anyway. Like Maelstrom, I figured I could ignore them myself just as well.
Nope. I did this before becoming a mod. After becoming a mod I obviously have other responsibilities

Seems like ke422azn has given up, so there's no need for me to ignore him
