I can't seem to get the large images anymore. Any hints?   It's weird that I can make it larger when viewed but it's small when I pull it in. The links have changed since the site was updated. No more clicking to get the large photo, and when you get to the download photo page, the image is as small as the original search result. Thanks for any hints.

 

I don't have a lot of people photos but I had a lot more to choose from for this challenge than I expected.

Jill suggested a method that does give large images. Go to the sales page and enlarge the image. Then drag it to your browser's search bar. Copy that URL and use it for Insert Image from URL.

Marianne, is that the daughter we once tried and failed to get a rental flat in Lower Manhattan? She looks like a true sweetie pie. 🙂

 

Thanks - yes, she is my one and only - and now she has given me a grandson - so that photo was a long time ago. She turns 29 at the end of the month. The photo was scanned from film.

Thanks that's what I normally do but it no longer seems to work.

My other method is to go to the image in the Image Manager and enlarge it. Then right-click or control-click and pick copy image address. After you paste it you can change "zooms" to "comp" and it will enlarge. Even if you leave it the image will be larger than what you have now.

I'm going to have to pull my finger out and get my 3 uploaded. Smile is a subject I have plenty of contenders for, have whittled my short list to 30 and still can't make my mind up. I asked my wife for her opinion, and she picked all 3 I likely wouldn't have. Next time our cat is on my lap I'll try to get his opinion.

Great theme 🙂, here’s my three

 

This was taken down on the NJ shore at Asbury Park. This was an out take of this couple between poses for their official photographer as we walked past.  I’d have enjoyed shooting that wedding 🙂

The queue outside Banksy’s Dismaland, WsM. Terry Hutt is the guy in the foreground, a well known royalist. People were still in high spirits despite queuing for hours and just being told no more tickets were available for that day

Three from me

 

 

My daughter, happy to be riding her bike off-road, and proud to be wearing her camelbak. You know you've made it when you get your camelbak.

Last couple of days for this challenge. In situation like this it should be possible to select 30 instead of 8 for the final.

 

That is about one third of photos uploaded to comp. so would require initial public vote to find eight images from the 30 then another run off vote.😃

A busker in Porto. Terreiro da Sé. First I've ever paid to take an image. €1 probably.
