Well I'm finally posting pics of my kids. The pics aren't very good though cuz they were taken with a disposable camera. :o

Logan is the husky, Chase is the lab, Jasmine is the white & black and Ziggy is the siamese cross......

Such handsome boys, rainbow! :lovestruck: Logan grew up into a stunning blue-eyed Mr! And Chase is a doll...but then, I have a soft spot for labbies. :D

I don't believe I've ever seen pics of Jasmine or Ziggy before! :eek: Waited way too long! They look so companionable together. :cloud9:

Thank dawg for disposable cameras! :thumbs up

The cat pic was a total fluke and Miss Princess Jasmine was likely hissing and growling at Ziggy a couple of minutes later. :rolleyes: They get along but it's one of those love/hate relationships. :laughing:

The cats and dogs get along fine but we do have to keep an eye on Logan if the cats are around at his feeding time. :rolleyes: But in his defense, it's always the cats that instigate. :evil: Other times the cats will be curled up beside him. I even have a pic of it once I get around to re-sizing it. :D

WOW !!! We finialy get to see what your fur family looks like.. They are all beautiful :lovestruck:
I love chase's ears and the freckels on logan OMG
now I know why you haven't posted the pictures before... you were scared that someone might steel them :laughing: I know if I was closer I would :D

more pictures please :D:D:D

p.s. to resize them try the program irfanview just type it in on the internet and you can downlload it for free. it is a simple program..I use it all the time.

rainbow
September 20th, 2007, 12:48 PM
Thanks Breeze. Is Irfanview any easier to use than Paint that's already on my computer? :o

breeze
September 20th, 2007, 01:13 PM
for me it is I really don't like paint, never have....
there is a post that marco did on how to resize the pictures in irfanview
it's really simple and you can have big pictures in a small file size..

So THAT'S what the fuss is all about !! Well, they are just GORGEOUS!

It's just like radio ~ they don't look a thing like I pictured they would look like !

I love Logan's smile ~ such a jolly fellow. And you can see the wee :evil: in Chase underneath that sweet "Who Me?" veneer. The markings on Jasmine are very striking and Ziggy has the Siamese pose down pat !

September 20th, 2007, 10:51 PM
Awwwww!!! So cute all 4 of them! Logan :lovestruck: Chase :lovestruck: Jasmine :lovestruck: Ziggy :lovestruck: I'm in love with them all!!!

The cats pic is just purrrfect huggin' on the couch! :cloud9: Chase is askin' for a big kiss on the nose in his pic :D Logan <sigh> :lovestruck: Ziggy <sigh> :lovestruck:

Miss Princess Jasmine complements Handsome Logan quite well doesn't she, matching black noses & caps (almost looks like she too has a clover leaf :cloud9:)

Exactly what I needed coming home after work :cloud9: a furry Rainbow kids love fest :D

Thanks Rainbow :thumbs up good job

These pics are probably 6 months old. If you look real close you'll see little mounds of snow across the street in the pic of Jasmine and Ziggy. :D

Yes, Chase is ALL legs. Lots of people we meet think he's lab x great dane. :D

I can't remember why Logan had his tongue out at the time. He's not the best looking out of the Sibes I've had but he definitely has more personality. :cloud9:

TeriM

I get that all the time too! We actually did meet a dane/black lab cross this summer and he looked nothing like Riley.

and I happen to think Logan is very handsome!

For most people the clover-leaf usually takes a while to get used to but he sure is cute :cloud9: :lovestruck:


Chase = big puppy feet :cloud9:

I think the only thing they would have in common is the legs. Danes just don't have the goofy look about them. :D

Well I'm used to it now but I much prefer the open face look. :cloud9:

I'm in love with the picture of the two of them sleeping together... why is it that they always find the smallest spot and make themselfs comfy :shrug:
or right where you have to walk, then they look at you as if you are not supose to walk there?? lol lol lol

Do you have more pictures :goodvibes: <----- me waiting for more pictures :fingerscr

September 23rd, 2007, 12:08 AM
I keep screwing up. :yell: :frustrated: :o

Have you tried downloading Irfanview? I just open up the pics with that program and then go to Image Resize and under "set new size" I just put 500 in the width and it resizes the rest. Then save as a different name and you are done :thumbs up.

rainbow
September 23rd, 2007, 12:35 AM
Thanks Teri. Breeze did tell me about Irfanview but I haven't downloaded it yet. :o I did however manage to get a couple more pics re-sized.....I think. We'll see when I go to post them. :D They aren't very good but I will start a new thread in case Hazel wants to see them. :o

rainbow
September 23rd, 2007, 01:10 AM
Well, I thought wrong. :laughing: If I download Irfanview can I crop pictures? :o

growler~GateKeeper
September 23rd, 2007, 01:27 AM
I had Irfanview on my old computer but didn't use it that often. When resizing pics it is done by pixel size:

From www.irfanview.com
Q: How to reduce saved file size from XX to YY KB?
A: There is no one-click solution for that, sorry.
1. Open an image.
2. Go to menu Image->Resize/Resample and reduce the image dimensions in pixels.
3. Go to menu File->Save as, choose JPG and save as new file (see also JPG save options like: lower JPG quality, uncheck EXIF, etc.).
4. Look at the file size of the new file. If still too big, repeat the steps, using smaller pixel size and/or lower quality, etc.
X. For many images, use File->Batch Conversion, Advanced options.

Yes you can crop pics w/irfanview this shows a demo:

http://www.peterkjohnson.com/helpSheet/demoCroppingIrfanview/croppingIrfanview.html


In Paint you can also crop: just move the mouse to the wee blue squares around the pic until the pointer is a double headed arrow click & drag - once you let go you lose what went outside the box.
You can also click Edit, Select All, then move the mouse onto the picture, click & hold them move the sides out of the box, again once you let go you lose what is outside the box

:D

rainbow
September 23rd, 2007, 02:11 AM
WOO HOO....I got it figured out but I never did find the blue squares you were talking about. :D But now I have to upload the pics from the cd again because they have lines around where I used the pencil thingy with Paint. :laughing: I'm too tired to do it now so it will have to wait until tomorrow. :o Thanks again, Growler. :thumbs up

growler~GateKeeper
September 23rd, 2007, 02:13 AM
heehee the blue squares are very very very tiny :D should've mention they are in the middle of each side & at the corners :o

and of course you're always welcome - the thanks I get is seeing your purrty crew :cloud9:
