gimp and inkscape are decent tools. and for online i like to use http://www.online-image-editor.com/ which is great for animated gifs and keeping transparency when resizing.

Nice photo's Con. Love the colour of the sea.



The main reading room at Gladstone's Library in Wales. If I could spend a day in this place I'd be overcome with the emotion of it all.

Love the coastal pictures Con :D

I know Gladstone's Library it's not that far from here, you can even stay there if you want to do research over a few days as they have bedrooms :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Peggy's Cove is a very popular tourist spot. There were hundreds of people there that day. It's also treacherous. People have been caught by waves and pulled out to sea.
