Apparently, I have to shrink my pictures to about 800×600 pixels to make them fit…
This also means that the pictures can’t be enlarged in case you’d like to view them in a larger format…
I think this is such nonsense, that I really don’t know if it’s worth the bother on my part. Any suggestions?
…for some time. I need to figure out what wordpress is up to OR find another service!
Why has wordpress changed their editing page? I’ve tried reading on their support pages to figure out how can re-size pictures – but the buttons they refer to are nowhere to be found!
How does this last picture appear on your screen? Please send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am almost going ballistic over the fact that wordpress no longer is user-friendly… unless you buy into the premium program at $99/year. Grrr!
Let’s see if a picture taken with my tiny pointn’ shoot will make the cut with the new format wordpress has decided on.
on speaking terms with wordpress… The pictures will show in a size suitable for a 56inch TV no matter how I try and tweak them! Isn’t there anyone that can help me???
…wordpress! Why do they change their editing functions in such a way that I an’t adjust the size of my Pictures – no. matter. what??? I’ve tried it all from full size (out of the camera) and down to 120kb-size. Guess what? They STILL show up in the largest format! Grrr!
I was told yesterday, that “my” Sami village would gather reindeer not to far from town today. I went by the compound and convinced 3 Afghani teenagers to come along…
Our minister was also there, with some guys from Eritrea – which made this into a very international gathering.
I love the sound of their hooves as they amble on, counter-clockwise…
When watering the plants in the kitchen today, I realized that all three cacti are full of buds!
More pictures to come once the buds have turned into flowers!
After a lengthy and very frustrating conversation with one of my charges via interpreter, I gunned it down the road to pick up my new glasses (+special reading glasses) in the nearest town. That’s 170 km roundtrip and it might seem a bit over the top. Not so.
First of all I really needed to clear my brain after the talk with -B- AND I sorely needed to get my new glasses.
I couldn’t keep my cool when the level of obstinacy reached hitherto unknown heights during 45 minutes. We just didn’t seem to be able to reach -B- at all, and it didn’t feel good to ‘loose it’ like I did. Coming back to town, I went back to the compound and met a totally different youth. I was given an apology for the poor language, a promise of regular attendance in school – and a quick hug.
No, I’m not going to count my chickens just yet – but I do think -B- has no doubts about the level of support that is offered. We had to ask some uncomfortable questions and challenge views presented – not to mention that some conditions of being an asylum-seeker was repeated a number of times. We did not part on good terms… I recognise being bullheaded and stubborn beyond belief from my own youth – but I also know that I needed the limits set by my parents. That’s my role now – being that ruddy parent who sets limits but still offers hope. Condemnation doesn’t make anyone grow, ‘tough love’ may sound harsh – but in my experience it has worked more often than not.
More to come – but for now I’m going to watch a program about the white bears of British Columbia, and just relax my shoulders.
Oh, if I wouldn’t have auto-focus on the camera, most of my pictures from the last year would have looked as if I had vaseline on the lense… I even see the speed signs in time to not get caught speeding!
