Hi jka,

Lovely image but please stick to forum guidelines which state that images should be a maximum of 700 pixels wide (except in "On Assignment" where 500 pixels is the rule). Thanks for your understanding and keep on posting. 8)

Bob.

Thanks for the compliments.....

Sorry Bob, after I posted it I realized it was too big and couldn't figure out how to get it back and resize it... :? Thanks for the fix.

alex168....You can ski until 10:00pm under the lights....very nice at that time.

I haven't fixed it and it is still 800 pixels wide. :?

The easiest option, if an image of the appropriate size isn't already on the photobucket server (in which case just edit your post to point to the correct image) is to resize the image in your image processing software and upload a smaller version. Then edit your post to point to the correct one. Remember that you can always link to a bigger image by enclosing the [img]..[/img] tags in [url=..]..[/url] tags where the ".." after the "=" sign is changed to the URL of the big JPEG. This BBCode page refers.

I really hope it doesn't seem as though I'm being too obsessive about this but it's only fair to members with smaller monitors and/or browser windows that we try and stick to the guidelines. 8)

Bob.

Great picture jka ! ;)

Have you tried adjusting slightly the colors in photoshop ? The cottages would probably look better with more vivid colors. Well that's just my opinion ;)

Have you got any other ones from your ski trip ?

Bob..........What am I doing wrong....When I preview the post it is the correct size pic (640x429) and then as soon as I submit it, it goes to 800x536.... :?:

Looks like you fixed it (big "thank you") as it displays at 640 pixels wide here. Maybe your browser cache needs flushing?

I've skied at night a couple of times over the years but, unlike your shot, in the dark. My original Swiss ski instructress's remonstrations to "benz zee knees" were more than slightly relevant. 8)

Scary more like. That's why, with over a year of my life spent enjoying various skiing holidays, I only did it twice. It's amazing how relaxed you can be when you fall after having enjoyed a Schnapps or three. :roll:

I tried night skiing last year - never again! Too many people careering down the slopes (and into me) who've had a Schnapps or three!

That said, I find it hard enough in daylight, without trying to make it tougher in poor light!

I don't think I will ever try it... I like all the bones in my body exactly as they are at the moment... not broken :lol:
