  13. This will be my first kit build log on MSW and my second wood boat build. The Sakonnet Daysailer, a 1937 club "one-design" boat, designed by John G. Alden. Joe

    087 German submarine Type XXI cut away

    Hi Niels, Nice submarine model you have there. Here is a method I use to modify the size of photographs so I can use them on forums. Sometimes I'll shoot in Large format and the change to photograph size for download is required. These are the steps I follow and you may have this program or something similar to use on your particular computer: 1. Import your photographs to the computer. 2. Open photo of choice in Microsoft Picture Manager (or similar photo software package that you may have). 3. Click on Edit Pictures, then click on Resize or Compress Pictures (as desired). 4. Select the size you want for your photographs. 5. Then, I always click on Auto Correct and see if the camera software improves the photo; sometimes yes, sometimes no. 6. Go to File, then Save, for the photo. Now the picture is ready and saved for use as an upload to a forum. Hope this helps! Joe
