Still noodling.  Let's see if this works better.  The glaze is sprayed on oribe with a spritz of cobalt blue on the rim and swirled in the middle. Bmix ^10 in oxidation.


perfect!

Thank you Marcia, and thank you for bearing with me as I worked it out.

i should be loading a kiln, not trying to post a picture!!!   mark, your instructions say to get the picture from "wherever it is".   that is my problem, i have sent myself an email with two pictures of a glaze i want to ask about.  how do i get them since the software here wants me to go to a "file" to get the picture to post?

 

to h with it, i have to load a kiln.

OL "wherever it is "means you will need to get of from your e-mail say to your desktop or a photo file. So when it asks for a file you select the desktop or file where the photo is-I do not think a E-mail is a file you can take it from so you will need to move it from the e-mail and on a Mac I can drag it to a file or desktop.On a PC I think you can now do this as well. (any PC uses out there?) Hope this helps-I to am loading a electric today as well-The large gas kiln is being unloaded today as well (bisque).

mark,

That thumbnail is 2.91 k. If you make them closer to 50 k, they can be much bigger than that. Dharsi's dog bowl was

129 k and went off the page when opened. This one is 43 k. It opens to a viewable size.

 

 

Marcia

Marcia, what's that red glaze? (and clay, etc.) Probably reduction, etc...so not possible in electric?  Love the pot!

trying again, the 14 year old who is here trying to help, cant make it work either. It is telling me that the picture size needs to be under 1.23KB which is an impossible size for a picture as the average small sized picture is 20-30KB. We were putting 50kb sized pictures on the site before, but it is now limiting us to impossibly sized pictures.

OKAY!!!  we have smoked out an expert!!!     How did you do this?  step by step.  so even i can understand.   why does the software tell me that the file is too big?  there have not been other pictures posted since the 17th.  unless i didn't find them when i looked.  did the site run out of storage space?  did I?

 

( the uncommon darter is beautiful)

I'm no expert, if it's working it's working, instructions are in the 1st post but I'll try and simplify it again here:

 

Use the reply box at the bottom of the page - and use "more reply options"

 

Have the photo at a sensible size both in pixels and kb (and it helps if you know where it is on your PC)

 

Click "browse" below the reply box

 

Navigate to the pic you want on your PC and click on "open"

 

Now click on "attach this file" (next to this you'll find displayed how much space you have left).

 

Once the file has uploaded you'll see a tiny thumbnail of it - to the right of that click on "add to post"

 

That's it.

thanks again. some of the things i do not know include dumb stuff like "I have pictures in Kodak easy share and Picasa 3 how can i resize them". neither of them seems to work. my daughter used "Paint" to resize the picture that became my avatar and the ones about the glaze recipe. THEY WERE RESIZED TO APPROX 50 KB. so when i tried yesterday, my neighbor resized the new ones to successively smaller sizes and nothing worked.

i have others stored in my computer but yesterday they would not work at all because when i used the "More reply options", then chose "choose file" resulted in the message that my picture was too big, being more than 1.26 KB. that is ONE POINT TWO SIX KB. only ONE though last week i posted one at 62+ something. your message above says there is another option, called "browse" which i have not seen before. i do not know how to navigate to anything but desktop (to get pictures i just stored there) and i cannot see which picture is being posted. there is no choice "open" that i have found.

i thought i may have been interfering with something being done to the website at the time, late afternoon on a friday.

then your beautiful picture came up. and now you have put another even more beautiful one. how can i get a print of it?

I don't really know where to go next with this, I know roughly how to use my PC but other than that I'm certainly no computer expert.

 

If the figures you're getting are correct then I really have no idea what the problem is, the last two pics I posted were approximately 150kb and went up without a hitch.

 

The number of kb relates to the quality of the pic, (more is better quality but generally unrealistic and unnecessary for a forum) there is another size to take into account and that is the number of pixels which relates to the actual size displayed on the monitor, I usually reduce my pics to 1024 X768; the pics that you posted previously were smaller than that so as long as the ones you are currently unable to post are no larger they should be OK.

 

We may well be using different web browsers (I'm using Firefox) but when I click on *Browse* a window opens up which allows me to search all the files on my PC for whichever pic I want, this window contains the command *open* for when I've selected the pic.This (below) is my "Netpics" folder, each yellow folder contains many pictures, I just navigate through them until I find the right pic and then use the *Open* command to bring it to the box next to the *browse * button - it's much harder to write it than it is to do.

Is your desktop not very cluttered with pictures stored there? If you right click with the mouse and select "New" and then "Folder" you will create a new folder and can rename it as whatever you want and save pictures direct to that folder, you can make as many folders as you like - you could also open your C drive and make new folders in there and keep them off the desktop altogether.

 

To print a pic from the web - open it to it's full size and then right click on the pic with your mouse and select "Save Image as"  - a window will open inviting you to save it - where is up to you, maybe in one of those new folders:   you're more than welcome to a higher resolution copy if you want one (I'd have to email that to you direct).

use more reply options at the bottom right on the reply box. a huge paperclip and the words attach files will come up.  i haven't been able to use it but lots of others know how.

There's a how to  "sticky " at the top of this forum - but basically , use the full reply box.

 

 

I can see an image icon in this reply box, it asks for a URL - presumably for if you have photos stored on Flickr or Photobucket or similar. - Testing that now.

 

 

Yep, that worksIMG_8800-c-r-f.jpg

I don't know about your computers, but on my HP-PC the thumbnails are great size and if I need to see more detail (like Marcia's--looks good enough to eat!) I hold CTRL key and press plus(+) key on the numeric part of keyboard.  I can make it any size needed.  Too often, I forget to then use CTRL and minus key to get the print back to size.

There is a recent long discussion on this topic.
http://ceramicartsda...tware-its-easy/

the lower right tag "more reply options" is the way to go. Keep the jpg around 50 k

No, not really! (but Crimson Marsh Glider Trithemis aurora is a possibility.)

 

Sorry, but in the USA there are hundreds of different species compared to our paltry fifty or so possibilities in the UK.  Many of them will be a different colour depending on if they are male or female and some change colour as they mature, the Common darter in my photo above for example is a young male and will be quite a bright red when it's mature.

 

I don't have a deep knowledge of them:  birdwatching goes a little quiet in the summer so Dragons take over, (they're much easier to photograph than birds, and it gets me out in the New Forest), they are nonetheless fascinating creatures each with their own slightly different breeding, feeding and survival strategy - they also pre-date dinosaurs, in those days there were some huge dragonflies around with  wingspans of up to 30 inches.
