This is considered the best way to post pics. It resizes the pics automatically. Get the hang of it, and entertain us pulleeezzze.

That was just great Brian!!!!

The photos should be jumping on our screens in the next few weeks.

One other thing if you have a program like Microsoft Picture It or Photo Smart or Adobe etc you can enchance, rotate or crop your photos and make them look like new or almost. Most scanner programs come with some kind of editing program.
But lets just get the hang of posting and then practice enhancing your photos as time goes by.

Everybody don't be afraid to practice posting photos. If you goof up (this is Warren) I can fix most things or the forum. You yourself also have the power to edit & delete your post and your post only if you goof up. So don't be afraid to give it a try.

Many viewers have photos on cd's that may have been given to them etc. I know you can copy the photos on the cd's to your computer files also. Maybe Brian can address in another instructional video about if your photos are on a CD.

You will need to select your letter for your cd drive like d or e or what ever it may be on your computer. Then your files on that cd will show up just like he pointed out on your files on the computer did.

Yeah we got to get this thing rolling. There is no telling how much we're missing out there.

 

The above vids I made were easy, and any questions I can answer, I'll do it.

IF this approach does not work, we'll go with copying and pasting, or/and photobucket.

Oh Man getting Mike into the 21st century and him posting his collection. Look out viewers you will be in for a treat. If we get Mike going then we can always think Mike Pogue could be next YA HOO!

Also Brian explain that if you click on the screen somewhere the dots around the border of the picture will disapear. There actually little squares. You can grab a hold of them and make the photo smaller or larger. Because some photos are so big you don't have room to put your cusor in where you need to. You can put your cusor in lower right corner next to the photo and hit shift and your cusor will move to the next line. You can then print some text right under the photos. It always helps to get rid of the dots around the photo so it will allow you to put your cusor there.

I just got an e-mail from Joe who has a big collection of Lubbock Tx photos. He says mainly sprints and some stock cars from the 70's. I e-mailed back and said I would be glad to post them. I also told him about your video and how to do it. So who knows Joe might be getting warming up right know.

In ten years I use to beg for photos for the site in my rambling column, the early viewers can attest to that. Oh well I'm not going there again.

I'll have to learn that one.

 

 

Incidently, the HP scanner made the 4x6 look much larger.

Mike from Lawton's collection would do very well with the scanner I use.

 

Mike from Tulsa , his photo collection is a MAIN reason to go to the Chili Bowl.

 

 

 

You guys need to understand -PICTURES are MORE effective than video when it comes to the popularity. My 'Heroes of the Supermodified Persuasion " slideshow proved that!

 

post away and if any questions, i got my trusty vidcam we'll figure out something.

You might be able to see a little difference in the two photos above. The bottom one has been Automatically fixed in Microsoft Picture It. Just click a button and it enhances the photo. It mainly takes out the yellowing and adds a little of the color back. It also may help with the focus. You can do some manual editing for all of that. Some photos really come back to life with enhancing. Most scanner programs come with some kind of editing program. Just a tip when working with old photos.

Just got back from the chili bowl.......

 

 

The photo may need to be resized. I know an easy "easy" fix for that, but I'll have to do the video on that sunday.

 

Warren may have an easy fix for it too.

This is probably where you need some kind of photo editing program to make the photo smaller. Also make sure it is a jpg, and nothing else say bmp etc. jpg is a smaller file size. Most Lexmark and HP scanners come with a editing program. You can also buy Microsoft Picture It, or Adobe, Corel, Photoscape. I have always used Picture It. You resize them enhance the color and b/w photos. Change them from bmp to jpg etc.

If you want to e-mail the photo to me I will resize it and send it back to you. When I first started building the site back in 2000. Bob Lawrence converted some of my photos so I could make the site. I went and bought the Picture it program and finally figure it out on my own.

190 miles via all interstate. What is that per hour? The Chili Bowl finished my guess is after 10pm. Or my guess is you never seen a race and hung out with Mike and left around 8 or 9pm?

I found Mikes table a lot more fun. Also Shane was doing autographs for the HOF.

 

Heard it was great race though.

I am not very sharp on computers, Warren can agree with that, but I was having problems sending pictures after I scanned them and my son who has a graphic design degree from OK State told me to reduce thew resolution when I scanned.Any way I have a HP scanner and it scans at 200 resolutions when I am scanning I have to change that to 100 resolutions so it will go with the message. An update on the back, Friday I was supposed to have a milogram on it and they could not get the needles in because of too much scar tissue, man that hurt all the way down to my little toe when they tried to push the needles in. I go to the Doc on the 21 to see what is next. The left leg is getting harder to use. Wish me luck.

I used to change the size of a photo (smalerize for hosehead) with Adobe Photoshop but it now just locks up and none of my other programs seemed to have that feature. I just played around with Picasa 3 and found that if you go to the edit feature and then through (tools, options) for a selected photo you can (under the e-mail tab) use the "size for multiple pictures:" slider and create a less pixle replacement. The check box just below it lets you select the same for single pictures. This allowed me to do the shrinkage thing on my photo. Picasa seems to be a free program (powerful)(removes red eye) etc. and comes with some other software and hardware. Steven Schrater

Picasa is a free download program and part of Google I think. It might be worth downloading it to give it try.

Yes you should be able to change your scanner resolution 100/150 should be good enough. You might even go lower. If you get to low you start getting pixelly and if someone wants to blow up a photo it will not work. The higher the resolution the better for that.
