Photo Gallery Question

thimbles1260 | Posted in General Discussion on

I loved the turkey placemat pictures and downloaded them for future use.  Thank you for sharing this site!  I do have a question about the gallery pictures.  When I look, the pictures are so very large that I really feel like I’m peeping through a very small hole to view them.  I’m not at all adept on this computer.  Can anyone tell me how I can make the photos smaller so that I can view the entire picture in one view?

    me too! i have to scroll around the photo so far, the effect is lost.
    isn't there a specification in the how-to about uploading a smaller file size? i have found that re-sizing large pics to smaller dimensions in a photo aplication on my own computer, befoe uploading to a website, results in a correct sized picture when posted. there's some beautiful-sounding things in the gallery here. i'd love to be able to see them!Edited 11/22/2006 6:25 pm ET by msm-s

    If you open the pictures in a new window by right-clicking on them, they will be automatically resized to the size of the window.

      Bravo.  Hats off to you and much Applause!!!  You have just saved my sanity.  I thought the problem of seeing the picture attachments was all mine and my lack of sophistication with computers.  Little did I realize that others were having the same experience, and, most importantly, that there was an easy resolution.  Thanks and again I say, Bravo.  Z

      Lise-Laure,  Thank you so much for the 'puter help!  It's great to be able to actually see the photo gallery!!  I suspect that I may be learning as many computer skills as sewing skills here.  My learning curve is going to be really high, but that's part of the fun, I guess! 

      Now, I'm going to attempt to show you the Halloween costumes I made for the grandsons.  I was pleased with the way they turned out and would like to share them with some people who understand what went into them.

      Later:  Hmmm.  Attaching a photo is going to take a bit more practice.  LOL  I'll work on it.

    Hi there Cherrypops!  I first tried right-clicking on the open photo itself.  There I could save as a back-ground, or save to my hard-drive or....there were some other options.  Many of the items were wonderful, but that's not really what I wanted to do.  Next I tried just right-clicking on the attachment.  That did it for me!  I got to see the entire photo, just as Lise-Laure said, automatically resized.  Yippee!!  I went to the White web-site to download the directions for the turkey placemats.  Cute!!  Don't know that I'll have time for them this year, but I'm filing them for next year when I'm retired and have lots more time!
