However, I'll have a go at helping you but not sure if this will be of any use... 

You say you upload to your Pictures folder in XP...

...when you find a photo there you want to upload to this forum, click on it once to highlight it, then 'right click' to bring up a menu. 
Left click on 'edit' which then brings up a 'Paint box'...
left click on 'image' at the top there... which brings up another menu... left click on 'stretch/skew'...  this brings up another box. 
Alter the Stretch horizontal and vertical, either enlarging fom 100% or downsizing [I have to downsize all mine to 80% horiz. and 80% vert.]... you will have to experiment with this... after you've resized and clicked 'OK', you must click on 'file' at the top there and click on 'save' before exiting it... I'm not sure if you've been doing that...?

then come back on here and try to upload the photo using the 'tree icon' above...

someone else - I hope - might have a better idea and can help you more on this one, as I'm not familiar with your camera type...

Thank you very much Salino. I'll have a go tomorrow, brain tired just now. Ta for having patience.

Salino you're a star, I think it's worked.

Now I need to practice taking better, clearer pics & because it will magnify I'd better get some weeding done. That blue plastic thing on the path is a bird bath, only temp, but withstood the frost.

Thanks again all who replied.

KEF, what a lovely old tree

31/05/2013 at 11:15

...KEF... a nice looking country garden there... and please tell us what that tree is as I can't quite make it out.... and yes, you will have to get some weeding done as we can now ZOOM IN !...

The tree is an old apple tree that we inherited 13yrs ago, it varies as to how it performs and I don't know what variety it is. It has two lots of apples on it. One very similar to a Cox, quite nice and the other tastes a bit like Golden delicious, but green not golden. Both very different. I assume it's 2 trees that have merged, if they do that.It doesn't have one distinctive main trunk, more like a tangle of trunks. It's been there many years per the neighbours, it was mature when they came 30 yrs ago. We aren't big apple eaters, but we do prune it each Xmas and I give it a tomato feed round about now. I'm just happy that it's there.

Better go and weed

...very nice old apple trees...

KEF, would tom feed be good for my pear tree?

31/05/2013 at 20:35

Yay!  No need to do anything with photos from this camera (CanonA560), unlike my other one, so I'll use this from now on.

Look great there Bob, nice flowers

I'm not knowledgable about fruit trees, but I do it because I once read it was a way of using up old tomato food, and I guess that it can only help with fruit production like with toms.

KEF, Thank you

03/06/2013 at 14:04

Goodness you have all been doing your homework while I've been on my hols!  I can see I'm going to have to organise myself a bit 

03/06/2013 at 15:05

Salino, just found this photo test thread.

I think it's a great idea - as you may have noticed I have had numerous probs with orientation of pics. (Have sent very l-o-n-g letter  to GW detailing difficulties and asking advice)

Just testing something now...
