There's still time!!!

Hello one and all,
 Just to let you all know that we are coming to the last couple of months for calender entries for the OTG Calender for 2013,there have been some fantastic images submitted by you all and i feel from what i have seen that we are going to have another great calender for next year BUT(and its something that Bodger has touched upon before)we do lack images related to COUNTRY CRAFTS AND SKILLS which we feel would be nice to see and it also adds some nice variety to the calender,so get out there with those cameras ladies and gentlemen and get snapping!!

What counts as a country craft or skill, rustyboy?  I can do photos of huge piles of wood already stored for the winter.......... or jars of jam and pickle!  I also have some knitted bears, or wooden jigsaw puzzles! Not sure any of these actually represent country skills as such, though!  
bodger

Those could be just what we want Wilder.

Ive got some blacksmithing photos but have a problem maki8ng them small enough to load.

Lorraine, if you have microsoft office picture manager open the picture in that and then click on 'picture', 'compress picture' and on the right hand side you will get a list of choices, click on 'web pages' , then OK and save as a new picture to preserve the original one.



There might be an easier/quicker way, but this is the way I always do it ('cos its the only way I have figured out so far!)
