Those cyclists were seriously moving!

I actually wondered if I would  be able to pass them when I finally got the chance!

As all have said, it was a great day - even if it was rather brisk in the highlands (note to self - avoid the highlands for moking during winter!) We're all looking forward to seeing the route map for what Samm has planned for IMD!

Hi Moe,

That fuzziness hasn't happened when resizing photos before..... the camera was set to 24mp and the photos were anywhere in the vicinity of 8 to 10 mb and sharp to begin with...... I resized them down to the required '<147 kB' in a hurry in order to get them posted before the run was forgotten about... I did it using the Microsoft Office Picture Manager..... although I do also have Photoshop CS5. I hadn't tried to post pics before that had to be downsized that much..... what should I have done?

Whoops! Did look it up again but forgot to post.
Will get on it the next couple of days when I get a chance.

Not used the MS Office Picture Manager. :)

Use CS5 as it will do a much better job or if you get them under 1mb then the Forum software will do a pretty reasonable job.

For best display if you use CS5 to make the images 600px or 640px wide and a resolution of between 72, 150 or 300ppi should give you a good image and fit under the limit and then whatever you upload is how they will appear.

Looks like a good drive and I like the water crossings but with a nice hard base you should go a LOT faster :)

My Artiste daughter has just given me a program that is way better than Photoshop for compressing photos of the ridiculous 10mb size that I have and which will render them suitable for posting with no visible loss of quality due to the compression ... we had a play with some pics and there was no comparison .... so my mission tomorrow (later today !) is to replace my blurry posted ones with better looking specimens  :)   (That will at least make me happier  :) )

Hi Smokey,

I can't see anything wrong, but maybe your Mac has the wrong settings or something  ???

All over my head too, so I've asked Terry to have a look at it for you when he gets a chance.

***Newsflash***

I have now gone to the effort of replacing the photos with slightly better versions for those interested in going back for a second look  :) :) :)

.... I can live with these ones!

Lucky you guys have daughters to straighten you out eh?!

Those photos definitely look nicer Vicki!

And Terry, there was an evil big bump at the finish end of one of the water crossings - made us slow down a tad...
