    I like mine the bestest :rolleyes:

  3. Sorry Jack, but Dream_Police has the most interesting and Mr_Geoff the prettiest!

    Perhaps if you changed that tatty "olde worlde" Pentax DSLR for a nice new up to date mobile phone your photography would improve?
    You know what they say Better equipment = Better photographs

    I'm going to have a sulk - bank holiday in Cyprus on Thursday, so took a four-day weekend. Finished off a film, and SWMBO got it processed today, together with a CD. As I didn't have to scan the negs, I thought I would post here. Try as I might, I couldn't figure out how to upload to the FirstView site. :(

    Never mind - there is always next month. [/sulk :D]

    I have heard it can be fussy though Ive never had a probnlem with it myself. No matter, you can post the piccie anywhere and just link to it here, where do you normally put your pics? I generally pout mine on my flickr account as well as the FV site. Huw'll always open the thread for you to post a pic if it has closed. :) :)

    Why wait till next month...

    Standard Coppermine procedure;

    • Register account
    • Login
    • Click 'Upload file'
    • Point to file - either online or on your PC
    • Click 'Continue', then 'Continue' again
    • Select album (2009 - 10 October)
    • Fill out details
    • Click 'Continue' and 'Continue' again.
    • Now goto the 2009 catagory
    • Click text or image to enter '10 October' album
    • Click your image thumbnail (probably on page 2) to view full size image & details
    • Right-click image to see properties, copy location url, post here. :)

    Yup - I would just add that where the 'Upload File' button/link is does seem to vary quite a bit depending on which theme you select, and with some it's actually hidden until you mouse-over the right button.

    Yes, that is unfortunate. However, I recently made the Coppermine default ('Classic') theme the, err default theme for the gallery, which has all the text links in plain view, hopefully making life a tad easier for the uninitiated. ;)

    Yes, the 'classic' one looks fine. I have mine set to 'Rainy Day', FWIW, because I like the tones. But anyway, that works too. :)

    Um I dont know what this 'theme' thing is about...? But to upload (or log in for that matter) I have to hover over the 'House' icon until the option comes up...

    EDIT: Scrap that, on going backm Ive just noticed it has changed beyond recognition! :D What I am quite concerned about is that I *didnt* notice this when I uploaded this month's file... :D :eek:

    Right - I'm on my way!

    It basically just means that you can select the colour scheme and layout for the galleries - there should be a drop-down box somewhere on the page with a few alternatives.

    Ah! eyeball! Thats what it used to look like! At least, after it moved from whatever it did before that...

    Who moved me from Eyeball to some wishy washy blue bollockry? Thats why I never noticed it this month, when I uploaded I was Eyeballing...

    EDIT 2: And the house is back! But I cant get out now! Agghhh!!!!

    Ay, there’s the rub!

    I moused over acres of screen real estate on every page I could find, but no upload button!

    Thanks for the clue - changing themes got me a sighting of the upload link. My work here is done. :D

    Well worth the perseverance I'd say - Mr Gitzo looks very comfortable on-board.

    Sorry for the confusion. :eek:

    Well, that's it for another month - many thanks to everyone who contributed. Any late additions - pm me or one of the mods, as usual, and we'll open up the picture thread again. Otherwise, see you all back here again in November. :)
