one persenters
I'm serious about 99% of the time (I guess that makes you a "one persenter", eh? ). It is making me old before my time. Is there a new law against people who are angry having fun? What a drag. Yes folks, the New Weird Order has truly come to pass. :(

Ben


It is a matter of realizing the last laugh is always on you.


And for sanity's sake, being able to chuckle at it right in the face.

Outlandish? of course.

Dark implications? most assuredly so.

Wingnut conspiracy? You better hope that is all it is.

Funny and entertaining? You betcha!

:D

I am quite enjoying Joe's new found impish image attaching feature!

:D


I'd really be concerned if he starts animating!

:cool:

Hey, fabzilla, how can one animate? Image

Enjoy my avatar. I go back to my Keltic Knot on Monday...

Hey, Bellisima, what do you think of my avatar? I think that the guy on the left was Van Papen in the original photo...

Question: how does one load an image from one's hard drive, as opposed to a URL?

Hey joe

Save it to a folder, then use browse when selecting image.


Check the sizing to make sure it is small enough to post.

Photoshop will be essential, just edit image size if needed.


If you inquire of animating, Dale is the man to talk to. he is far more knowledgable than I ever will be there.

OBTW
check your PM's

oh yeah, but you could probably cut it at 400 by 400

It's easier to trim them down than to blow them up, more clarity and less pixelation, althought hat particular one is cropped for an avatar which is much smaller.

Digressing back to the topic


Sorry for the off topic chatter

No, it is British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain after signing the "non-aggression pact" with Adolf Hitler in September 1938 that he declared would produce "peace for our time".
