    Posting Photos on the Forum

    I have been asked to explain how to post a photo here. So, how about border quilting teaser photos?

    Wendy Willams quilt was beautifully quilted by a longarm quilter in Australia. I got to see it in Denver last summer when we taped Show 2801. She quilted buildings in the borders—really a fun touch.

    To add photos:
    Select the camera icon on the left
    Upload photos on your device
    It took a few seconds to load these two photos
    I could see them in Preview so I knew they were there

    You can also Insert the photo instead of Attaching it--select Insert while posting photos. I tried it and the photo was way too big so I'll have to learn more about that.

    Yesterday I saw what the maximum sizes are somewhere but, of course, I can’t find that info right now.

    I hope this helps.

    Ooops, wrong topic. I’m trying a seasonal variation. Spring houses are light, summer — vivid, fall — falling leaves, winter — dark.

      mblindsay, Are you planning to use tree tops that are the color of seasons? Light green for spring,
      more vibrant green for summer, gold, rust for fall, and maybe bare tree branches for winter? It looks really good so far. HelenW

      Wonderful embellishments!

    Here's a photo after Month 4 is completed. I'm a little concerned about having too much fabric at the bottom of the houses, but hope this problem will be rectified with the insertion of the road. Fingers crossed. Loving this project! Thanks Barbara and Wendy!!

      Sandra, Your house ring with the trees look great. Looks like it should work fine when you insert the
      road, but if you have a little excess fabric that does not ease in easily, you could add like a dart at
      the bottom of a couple seams to make it a little smaller. Looking good so far! HelenW







          3 MB is the maximum photo size to upload.

ID:	885802 Barbara said 3 MB is the largest size picture. My computer puts inches when you go to adjust size. I googled how big in inches is
            3MB? I got this info. Took a screen shot of it and then went to tools/adjust size on my computer menu bar and this is what I got.
            Interesting in that it may help some forum members to understand it is a really small picture that is allowed for upload, but when you look at it on the forum it comes out normal and you can zoom it by clicking. HelenW
