Hi Dave K.

You may have noticed that i have been having a few problems posting photos. (on other threads.) I have managed to get them on and have been able to rotate them the right way round but when you click on the image to enlarge them they just stay the same size. It there any way round this?

I down load them from my e-mail and they then appear in Windows photo gallery where i can save them to a file, there are a few options to modify exposure/colour/crop pic and red eye, but i am not sure how to get them so i can view them full size on here. Do you have any ideas, please.




Hi, Edd..can't say I've encountered this problem. Sometimes the file size needs to be reduced to prevent magnification being displayed as text, so (in reverse) checking file sizes may be worth looking into. Also, if you have a Photobucket (or similar) account, try posting from there,

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Thanks punkdoc & Forester......both lovely pics & hints of spring to come. 

What's the weather like in your area?

Mixture of sunshine & dullshine here today, though it's really quite mild.

Don't think I've ever known such a profusion of catkins as there is this year.

Hi again, Louise.....yes, I did recommend using John Innes 'seed' compost in the opening post of this thread (and many times since) although any compost specifically produced for sowing seed will do. This  information was given for autumn sown seed as it contains less nutrients than others, hence helps prevent the seedlings making too much growth over winter.

Of course, it's worth noting that if you're sowing your seed now, multi-purpose compost will be just fine, as you will be encouraging growth from now on.

Hope that makes sense!
