OK - will try to attach a photo, although am usually rubbish at doing this kind of thing...

Anyway, they're 3.5 and 15 months now and fab little things (this morning they certainly are as they've been at their grandparents overnight! How do you think I've had time to do this?!! ).

We're in Manchester - I'm an evil NHS manager and dp does the hard work at home and works part-time at Manchester University.

Right, will now try to attach photo (watch this blank space...)

Aw - can't wait to see them!

anorak Sun 24-Jul-05 12:32:41

I want to see the baby whose first experience of the world was hearing 'Thunder Road'!!

flipping heck - the computer's muttering something about having to resize them. (please don't tell anyone that I manage the IT department at work but am completely lost with anything more tricky than "press start"...).

Yes, they need to be smaller than 18k.

There are programs you can download to do that - Picasa is one (fab for photo storage and manipulation and totally free too!). Go to for it.

OK - now just give me a couple of hours/days/months to figure it out and I'll be back!

Janh Sun 24-Jul-05 13:00:44

dot, Picasa is so easy even I could do it (and that's saying something )

dot1 Sun 24-Jul-05 13:05:00

OK, so I've downloaded picasa, but I can't figure it out -and I've lost the blue line on this thread to have another go!

You'll just have to imagine 2 gorgeous boys!!

You should be able to add a pic at any time, dot - some people change theirs regularly.

Have you done transferring all the pics on your PC into Picasa?

dot1 Sun 24-Jul-05 17:30:19

Yes! I managed that - now what??!!

SaintGeorge Sun 24-Jul-05 17:33:11

If you have imported pics into picassa you now need to click on the relevant one and export it into a different folder - it will give you resize options as you export it. Then upload the new version to here.

If you are still struggling and want it sorting you can email it to me if you want.

Thanks SaintGeorge - have e-mailed you!

dot1 Sun 24-Jul-05 17:54:02

Yeah!!!!! I did it (sorry SaintGeorge - but thank you anyway for offering to help out!).

SaintGeorge Sun 24-Jul-05 17:56:05

No worries. You will need to either do a 2nd thread for the other pic, or montage the two together.

Lovely boys

dot1 Sun 24-Jul-05 17:57:24

ooh - how do you montage the two?! (I'm getting sooooooo technical now!). Have managed to replace the previous one - the fasted showing of a photo in town!

SaintGeorge Sun 24-Jul-05 17:58:57

Not sure in picassa - I use different software - but basically I cut the 2 individual pics and paste into a new one, then resize as required.

hunkermunker Sun 24-Jul-05 18:02:45

You can create a collage in Picasa, Dot. There's a button at the bottom.

Your boys are gorgeous!

SoupDragon Sun 24-Jul-05 18:09:42

15 months old? How did he get to be 15 months old??

Janh Sun 24-Jul-05 18:10:50

They are beautiful, Dot!

And isn't the little one big!
