    Absolutely, and It goes without saying that nothing can beat it when it is a grilled spam sandwich except maybe New Orleans style blackened Spam sandwich.

    Dennis, there are several ways to search through the gallery. I'll try to post a thread on how to navigate through the gallery in the next few days.

    The problem that I see with the second video is that it was shot in portrait orientation. It needs to be in landscape orientation to fit the video format. Another possibility is that your camera settings for orientation may be turned off if the camera actually was in landscape while filming. What online service are you using to host the videos?

    Regarding your banner photos, perhaps I need to remind members about the rules regarding the purpose of the gallery since it has been dormant for five months. The image gallery is strictly for displaying your completed turnings. Any other photos posted in in the gallery will be deleted. Any other image that you wish to use in a message posted in the forum can be either uploaded directly to the forum from your computer or embedded if the image is one that you have on an online photo hosting site.

    Ok did not know about image rule. Was mostly testing it out. Will change them when I get home. I am over due for a photo shoot abyways.

    The second video is from Facebook video and linked here. Again it was mostly testing things out

    Regarding your comment about images being cropped to a square format, I also encountered that when I tried to post an image from the gallery using my iPad. However, things worked correctly when I used my desktop computer to post the image. I attributed it to my clumsy use of the iPad, but I will try to see if the problem was my fault or if it was elsewhere.

    Also uploading a photo from my iPhone told me 1 meg max per file but there's no easy way to see file size with iOS.

    I installed a freebie app on my iPad called SimpleResize that allows me to resize images and save in either JPG or PNG format, but it still doesn't tell me the file size in bytes.

    Normally, the rule is a maximum of four images per day to the photo gallery, but I think that we might consider lifting that limit to allow members to restore their photos posted after August 11, 2014 that were lost due to the hacking that took place in January of this year. It's a painful lesson that hackers, apparently lacking a moral compass, are seemingly indiscriminant in their behavior.

    I see you are an AAW member, so I set you up with club privileges (secret handshake to follow).
    You are now at 25MB of storage and 2MB max file size. But thats easy to burn up.
    Personally I like photogene

    This may not officially be considered a bug, but it's guaranteed to drive me nuts. Not sure about others, depends on if anyone else prints things from the forum. I printed out a nicely detailed post about finishing with poly, and the print is extremely tiny. Is there any way to get the default print-out size to at least 12? Otherwise, printing (for me) will involve copying to a WP program, resizing and then printing.:(

    The print size depends on settings in whatever you are using to print the posts. Just as a sanity check on myself, I tried my two favorite ways of printing this thread and everything came out looking like normal size text to me.

    My usual way of printing something that I find on the web is to highlight what I want to print by either doing a click and drag or a CTRL-A if I want the whole page followed by CTRL-C and then in Microsoft Word I click on a blank document CTRL-V to paste it into the document. You can use this to print whatever you highlight, but I don't print backgrounds. Whenever I use this method, the typeface and point size are determined by Word.

    I also tried using my browser, Firefox by clicking on File > Print and the results are essentially the same as looking at a page on the screen ... easily readable. The main difference between using Word or my browser is that the the browser prints the whole layout of of the page which can be a big waste of paper and ink.

    As a last ditch way to get things right, you could copy text into Notepad which strips out all formatting and then copy and paste that into a word processor document.

    Yep, I know about all the various ways of getting around things, just hoping to be able to print straight from the page. On the majority of web pages I might want to print from, the font size isn't noticeably different from what I see on the screen, so the teeny-tiny print was a surprise. What I do here is highlight the text I want, CTRL+P and choose Print Selection. At the old forum, there was a print function -- available under Thread Tools (I think). Or, I could print the whole thing off by pretending I was going to reply, and printing the simply-formatted posts that would appear then.

    I'll try opening the forum in Chrome instead of IE and see if that makes a difference. Not a Firefox user at the moment.

    You can also use the PrtScr button on PCs, and "edit" in PCPaint.
