    Hey Melissa

    Would you happen to know how to shrink a picture down so it will fit into the post. Most of the pictures I have will not fit. Thanks for the help....and nice pic too!!

    RFRDxplorer,

    Thanks for posting more, do you have a close up? Not as up close and personal as mine (haha) but something where we can see you better.

    Derek (firerunner7)

    That is a great pic.

    I clicked on my pictures, then edit, went into the program I have for pictures. I then cropped them, saved them, looked at the size in my pictures to see if it would fit, if it did I downloaded. Just kept cutting till I could fit it. But as you can see it came out so big. I would ask someone else. Hopefully this will generate a better answer, I'm sure.

    Melissa

    PS making the pic small did not help me.

    go to http://www.irfanview.com/ and download IrfanView - it is THE neatest image tool ever. It's great at resizing & changing formats (BMP to JPG, etc) and best of all - it's FREE (my favorite price).

    It's one of the few "I'll never have a computer without it" pieces of software I have ever seen.

    I think what the problem that exists is that another person borrowed her computer to build a profile (which became Primary) and then she went to build hers. So whats happened is that FH.com recognizes that there are two profiles coming from the same ISP. And since her's is the second one, it reads her as a "Guest" to the earlier profile request.

    I think..... WT will correct me (maybe) if I've got it wrong.

    Two different people.

    I signed up after someone else signed up and apparrently I am a guest under the first user and can't get status as the main account. I can't edit, get a green light or have people email me.

    The WT just hasn't fixed the bug to make registered users stop appearing as "guest"... That's all.

    Those are some good pics Jake. I wish I could download more of mine.....or do I. HA!

    Thanks for sending me your website.

    I must say... your hometown FD website is one of the best I have ever seen.
    GREAT pics, good color, good format and good read. I certainly would be proud.

    If I ever got a local webpage up I would fashion it after yours.

    You're looking at it too long...... I'm the fastest gear donner in our post.....won the competition last year. Also beat numerous firefighters. Doesn't hurt that I have been in turnouts since the day I was born.
