Nice pictures.

Penfold, what did the wooden frames in the water used to be?

Dug, love the pictures, especially the tree!

Penfold, great pictures! My favorite is the one with the red boat.

Simon, couldn't view your pics.

Ok, I'm wrestling with Photobook again. I'm going to try to put up a few pics from the trip.

The resort:

ARGH! How do I keep it from cutting off the image?

They should both extend farther to the right and show all of the sculptures. :( Can anyone suggest another site to host photos?

Nice place Susanne. I've had a few problems with image sizing on Photobucket myself and found the best way is;

    1: Click on the image
    2: Select 'Edit'
    3: Click on 'Adjustment'
    4: Click on 'Resize'
    5: If the picture is in Landscape format, in the 'Width' box overwrite what is there with "640". If the picture is in Portrait format, in the 'Height' box overwrite what is in there with "480". If the number in the appropriate box is less than these figures, then ignore what I have just said. Also, make sure that the box marked 'Keep Proportions' is checked.
    6: Click on 'Apply'
    7: Click on 'Save as Copy' and use the copy to post the image.


For some reason, if I use the 'Save and Replace' option, my photos are cut off but by using the copy version, the alterations seem to have been applied and the photo fits perfectly. :?

By the way, forum size photos of 640x480 seem to work best. I hope this helps. :D

I'm not too sure whether you are referring to the groynes (pic 1, 3, & 5) which are used as protection against tidal erosion (spelt 'groins' in the US) or the structure of the pier (last three pics). Normally, piers have buildings on the end of them but Bognor's seems to have been shortened by around eighty foot for safety reasons after suffering storm damage in 1999 and is now little more than a platform going out to sea. It's claim to fame is being Britains 10th oldest pier and the hosts of the annual Birdman Competition (since moved to my hometown of Worthing as a result of the aforementioned storm). :D

Anti-erosion, of course. Thanks.

Thanks but that seems to be how to add an avatar. Done that. How do I attach photos to posts?

Thank you Penfold! That seems to do the trick.

Del, thankfully I was mostly functional while we were there. Although I just couldn't get up the energy to go swimming. I did hang out on the side one day with my feet in the water watching them swim and taking pics though.

Simon, I use a photo hosting site like Photobucket, edit the picture there (or try!) and then copy the direct link to it. On the forum here there's an "Img" button at the top when you post a reply. Select that, then copy the direct link to your image in between the brackets. Hope I didn't make a mess of that explanation!
