Computers can be a pain ...


I downloaded a copy of your image, which seems to be only 100x76 pixels, and followed the

advice on How do I attach an image in the Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

postings in the Forum FAQ & Help Topics forum.

After you have your image resized, go to the bottom of your post and click More Reply Options,

then to Attach Files at the bottom of the page. Click Choose File button. Navigate to your photo

on your computer. Choose the file and click the Attach This File button. You will see a small thumbnail

of your image on the left and an Add to Post button on your right. Click the Add to Post button.


Note that the Choose file button now seems to be called Browse


... following this procedure gave


Attached File  oldladypic.jpg   2.87KB   1 downloads


Which does include a "thumbnail" of your picture in the posting, which does open-up to "full-size" when

you click on it. Unfortunately the full-size image is only 100x76 pixels so it doesn't really change size


Regards, Peter


PS Tried the same procedure with a picture from another thread, as a check on my logic.

Seems to be OK. The Image as downloaded was 640x477 pixels, and expands nicely.

Basic evening-class stuff, but a test tile with a stripe of each on N glazes one way,

overlain with a stripe of all the colours at right angles shows you the effects of all

N glazes under/over all the others. I wouldn't try with N=40 though!

...  a blank line in one direction [so an Nx(N-1) grid] shows single and double 

coverage of each glaze as well.

No experience with this glaze, but FYI


Effect of different colourants



Note from the originator, who now prefers the name Randy's Oatmeal Rust.


Quote: Another interesting thing though, the tests with only one opacifier didn't break
red the way it does with both tin and superpax.
