I found the first two frustrating: he'd show Camden pubs, but never go inside; didn't see the Camden market in action. City churches are often open, but all we see are courtyards. I flipped through those and gave up.

The Highgate vid was more satisfying, because a cemetary and parks are all about outdoors.

I think he was filming during lockdown and probably all the pubs were closed due to restrictions. It does look spookily empty, London is never that quiet normally. On the other hand it being empty gives him the chance to do the tour in peace and quiet. The market would be frustrating though as it is normally so alive and bustling. maybe he will go back once its back to normal. I just like his style of narrating, and the fact he seems to have a steadycam.

Me want.  Used in The Godfather III.  Only $6.8 million,  seems a steal.  If anybody wants to loan me a few $$ I'll save a guest bedroom for you.  (Call soon, before Clooney notices).

They don't give you anything anymore? We can still turn in, but it seems to only make a moderate dent in the litter outside the cities. People in the cities tend to make their money going through other people's trash, though they likely pull the occasional bottle out of the gutter.

I was wondering why this was on a democracy site, then saw the split. The size looks about right.

I was just kinda blown away by how little there is of the stuff, relatively.

Only watched the first few minutes, but a quick summary seems to be "don't mess with the factory settings".   I never saw the point in bothering. Individual photos can be enhanced, but there's so much variation between shots it seems a fool's errand to attempt to pick one set of adjustments for video.

Post by Mrs Figg Wed Feb 02, 2022 2:03 pm

This is basic stuff, but how do you send images to other people via email. The people I need to send the photos to need a lot of photos that I have saved on my computer in my pictures section. They are going to publish these photos I have found on Google images but they are of various sizes and I don't know how to send a file in (jpg or tiff resolution 300 DPI) but I don't know what that means. Is it easy? What happened was I wrote my masters thesis and turned it into a book written in Italian. At the time that I did the masters I used pictures that I found on the internet. I don't know anything about publishing rights, but the publishing house has asked me to send the pictures that I want to be put into the book. Some of the photos I have asked for permission when its obvious who owns them, but the others are just random photos with no person at the other end I can contact. Anyway my more pressing concerns are how to send and convert my file in high resolution jpg tiff in 300 DPI or whatever they want. help!

Sending is easy, just look for some button that says "attach" or looks like a paperclip.

For resizing you need an application, but if you have some photo application you should find a "resize" command on it. It may be a button with a small square inside a large square. Perhaps microsoft has something built in, but I don't use microsoft. There are tons of free photo applications out there if you don't have one. Look for the simplest one you can find.

Photo applications can also change the format: use "save as".
