Hi, Ann.....yes, I've done this with my camera, but it doesn't offer anything like the same scope......and *the software is free & quite easy to understand. As I see it, printing would be my problem, I would probably send it to a CD & have it printed for me.

No, not plugs (perish the thought) as I said 'just cheap packets of annuals.'

*Not sure if there is a Mac version.

Not that this will be very interesting to many, but I wanted to say that yesterday evening's camera club session was extremely interesting.

The topic was taking panoramic pictures and I can see it may open up a whole new aspect of photography interest for me..... although I'm not sure how the results would translate to here.

I won't bore you with the technical details, but would say that there is a package to stich the pics together and assemble them. It's called Microsoft ICE and is a free download.....even for me who had never heard of it, found it very easy to use.

180 degree shots are very impressive.

Edit. Video

 This is a colourful border I made just using a few cheap packets of annuals.

Ah, that must be frustrating for you, Ann.

I use the old fashioned steam desktop mainly; with Virgin’s 32mb broadband connection it’s pretty quick.

I do have an Acer laptop that I only use when I’m out & about, that uses a Virgin 2G mobile dongle……pretty slow though.

Thank you, Ann.

Can you not upload your pics into Photobucket first, then copy them (click direct option) and post them here via pasting them to 'an external site' option? ...I do this sometimes. 

I use IE version 11.

Those are truly remarkable shots, Lyn....thank you.

I can see why you like close-ups of flowers.

On this subject of formatting memory cards.

Given that  it seems better to use the card until it is fully loaded then format, or at least use for a couple of three months, rather than deleting unwanted pics regularly,,,,perhaps the memory capacity should be borne in mind when buying a new one.

My camera is equipped with a 8GB (came with the camera) and really it wouldn't matter if was half that size. I have another camera with a 16GB card, which is far too large.

So, I would say a memory card of 4 to 8GB is plenty for most of us.

Who said size doesn't matter?

Not sure f that means a success or failure, Ann......remember I've not seen it.
