playing with photobilder...
I'm sure some of you are aware that if you have a paid type account you have 50mb of space to put pictures on LiveJournal's photo hosting site (http://pics.livejournal.com) I had a couple of pictures there for a while - mainly to remind me to do something with them, but last night I put up the Halloween pics, some pictures of the fish, just a few of the hundreds of pictures that Misty took of a rainbow, just a couple of our cats, and some random stuff. I find that my 50mb are now gone. That is the problem of taking high quality digital photographs!

Photobuilder is quite a nice tool, once you get the hang of finding what you want. I spent about 30 minutes last night trying to find where I could move a picture from one gallery to another... the strange part being there are only 3 or 4 main menu branches! I don't know how I could have missed it for so long.

It creates thumbnails for you (which you can modify) so load times for those on slower connections shouldn't be too bad. There is a intermediate size for a proper view without waiting 10 minutes for the screen to load, and then a full size view. The pictures I put up there are 5 mega pixel with bugger all compression... they average about 2 meg per picture. Whilst this is great for getting prints done - it is somewhat unnecessary for uploading to the web, so I shall be compressing them to a more reasonable size sometime in the future...

In other news - Misty is off work today... she is feeling a bit down so go over to her journal and send her hugs n stuff...

I'll give you 100 mb on my site for free if you'd like. E-mail address comes with it though.

Edit: repair broken HTML

That's a kind and generous offer... thank you!

I do already have a web site from the (mostly) nice people at brinkster that has a fair amount of free space... I just like the way photobuilder organises stuff for you.
