How would you like to spend the night?
Playing on DU or fighting with a new camera?

I should've come out to play. Instead, all's I got was this lousy picture.

:mad:

Post your latest and greatest, then tell me what I'm doing wrong.

:cry:

If I could figure out how to get one on my computer in under three hours, that'd be a big help when it comes to getting a decent one.

10. I got it working on Bonehead's computer.
Took me forever and a day to upload this one picture...and it was WAY too big. I had to crop it and try and resize it and I generally messed it up.

And that's #4 son behind me.

Thank you.

15. Nice picture!
What photo management software are you using? I like Picasa myself, download straight from a camera via USB connection, plus you can export pictures in a photo album setting, and can choose sizes from full size all the way down to thumbnail..

23. I have no idea
I just downloaded the stuff that came with the camera and, since I had to install it on my son's computer instead of mine, I couldn't even mess with it that much.

:(

I'm persistent, though, Tenacious, even. I'll get there.

Someday.

Thanks.

This picture reminds me of Meryl Streep in Sophie's Choice, which was I think her most 'beautiful' role, at least the scenes that are supposed to be in present day.

You and your son look like you're having fun, and, what beautiful hair you have RRR!

Well, at least you are smart enough to figure out how to resize photos in 3 hours. I can't seem to get the hang of it no matter how much time. Soon, though...I promise...I'll post some more.

Anyway, as you can also see by the other responses, nothing seems wrong with that one at all!

My son's girlfriend chopped about eight inches off my hair...someone needs to give that girl a ruler and show her the 1" mark. Started off past the middle of my back and was to my shoulders when she finished. I could've cried. Then killed her.

Sheeesh.

It's finally starting to grow back, though.

You can't post a pic like that (yum!) and then ask if one would rather "play on DU" or "fight with a camera" and then suggest that you "should've come out to play"...

Wow...check out the hotness that is reyd reid reed (or Triple R as I like to call her).

Whoa.
