    222nd FTU Salon: Inanimate Nature

    222nd FTU Salon: Inanimate Nature

    Ok, Something not living, not man made but natural. Anything from a tiny pebble to a mountain. Opens up a very wide choice for everyone to decide on their own definition and participate. Hopefully we will get plenty of entrants.

    Here's what you have to do:

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. Upload your entry to your FTU user gallery (all entries must be present in an FTU gallery, which you automatically get if you are registered on the FTU forum), so if you aren't registered, you will need to if you would like to join the fun!)

    2b. This also means you can try the brand new and improved gallery!

    3. Use the gallery IMG code or the 'Post New Thread' Advanced Mode 'My Pics' facility to display your picture in a response to this message. If you are having trouble with this, post a message for some help here and we'll gladly assist. It becomes easy after a while!

    4. You can post two pictures, but only two entries per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that's OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

    5. The decision of the curator at the end of the two weeks is final - don't give him or her a hard time about it; this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and, as soon as possible, post a message starting a new thread in the FTU Salon board, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon!

    Enjoy yourself and don't take it too seriously, it’s supposed to be fun.

    Closing date and time: Midnight GMT On August 23 2017

    OK... How doe's one "un thumb" a photo for display. Will add some commentary once the photo is the proper size.... Also, how do I make use of the over 300 images from different sources on the old gallery, I don't intend to re-enter the whole lot

    What Andy said works...

    Hi Steff, I can't answer your questions as I'm simply not "techie" enough. I can see the full image if I click on the thumbnail. As far as i know the person you need to speak to is Ian but I think he is now on his way to France. Can I suggest that unless anyone else can help, ( I've asked John Zuiko to have a look ) you leave the thumbnails there as your entries until Ian returns in a weeks time and possibly sort it out then ?

    I don't know if the forum software has a glitch or not but if anyone else has the same problem at least the full image is visible from clicking on the thumbnail so feel free to post an entry and sort it out later next week.

    Hope this is of some help.

    John

    Hi Stef

    If you edit your post and change the word "thumb" to "full" in the image string entered it should show the full image. I believe this has been noted and may change in the future.

    As to the existing images in the old gallery I was wondering the same thing.
    All the best

    Sorry guys, apart from Andy's advice to edit your post and change the word "thumb" to "full" in the image string entered I'm afraid I don't have a solution.

    Not sure if this quite meets the brief but it's certainly inanimate.
