Pics of my paint job

Download picassa.  Do a google search for it. Open the picture after installing picassa. Down at the bottom click "edit it picassa". Then immediately click "export" at the bottom of the screen that comes up. It will come up with a dialog box. It's pretty self explanatory hOw to degrade it. Then it will put the degraded picture in a folder, usually on your desktop. Just post that picture. :)

www.picresize.com, online free pix resizing. You don't need to download anything, but need to be careful when you save the re-sized image. Be sure to give it a different name or else your original will get over written.

I will remember that Rick!  I use picassa for editing and resizing, but it would be nice to have a standalone resizer once in a while.

One more angle

Once the bike is assembled and stops raining, I take a pic of the whole bike.

George beat me to the punch...
It's a real powerful package, I use it a lot posting to various forums.
simply click the resize in the "view" option, click it twice, or even 3 times, prior to saving the pic as "save as" option....very little degradation of quality for forum size pics.

A very overgrown Pygmy Marmoset.  Gotta luv Photoshop!

That was a very fun thread (Ape Hangers on a Connie).  And I'm glad you found it amusing too, 'cuz I had a lot of fun with it!  Never did add the tassels, though...

I still say you have a truly unique and very nice looking Connie there!  Maybe I'll see it in person someday...
