Hi Val,
I am unable to upload my painting, I keep getting an "error" message. The strange thing is that I just uploaded a different painting without any trouble.
Can u help me? I can email it to you.
 :thankyou:
Maria

Maria,

Try making the file size smaller.  That is usually the problem.

Wow, Maria.  That is so well done.

When I have a photo file size that is too large, I bring it to PAINT and resize it.  Easy and fast.

 :thankyou: For your encouraging comments Mea, and  :thankyou:  for always sharing new tips with us. I used the crumpled paper technique you brought to our attention in the last Newsletter  to add texture to the fruit stem.  Next time I will be more adventurous and try a larger area.... I repeat: you are a treasure.


What software do you use to decrease the size of the picture?

Maria, I use the "FastStone Photo Resizer". It is a free program you can download from the net. I've used it for a number of years, very easy to use.
