When we switched hoster some months ago we changed quantity to quality.
We will redo the serverstructure soon, so those problems wont appear anymore then.

Thanks Martyn - I know someone else posted and they came up in pdf format and Holger offered to convert them - I just wondered if there was an easy (and cheap :D ) way for me to do it :thumbup:

Oh, I forgot about this!
In Acrobat full version you can save the pages as JPG or TIFF (or other formats).
In Acrobat Reader this is not possible.

But there are other programs and webpages available to do this job.

But: you are always welcome to send PDF-files to me and I will convert the pages to JPG-files for you.
The files have to be open, no PDF-file-protection applied.

I still experience the problem of the pictures being shown in a different order to the one i put them on in.
Normally it doesn't matter but if you want it in a particular sequence it comes out all wrong.
The pictures of the Doosan rubber ducks were put in as images 015 016 017 and came out as 016 017 015 :dizzy:
This is only with the CMN uploader.

Thanks
Steve


Seems to reverse the sequence!
I've tried using Photobucket but not got on very well . Images appeared very small and would not enlarge "on click"!
The problem I find with sites like Photobucket and Image Shack (and it's probably an age thing!) is that they seem to assume a certain level of knowledge and don't have an Idiots Guide that I can print out and have handy when attempting to use the site. Ask for help on a forum and you get varying answers from various guys who know how to do it but can't explain it!
When I first tried to post an image on this forum Martyn Henley sent me a plain English, step by step guide to reducing image size and it solved that problem "just like that" as Tommy Cooper would have said. - for ever grateful!
