Hi Rocket

As a very very amateur photographer do you know what size pictures I should be taking?

Have your camera set to take the highest quality pictures it can. Then its easy for you/us to resize them.
Countries I've ridden: Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Spain, Andorra, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Canada (hired bike).
Memorable places: Applecross, Barra, Calanish, Lascaux, Pyrenees, Connemara, Tofino, Lillooet, Sulphur Mountain, Nordkapp, Dalsnibba, Borgund stavkirke.

I think the detail of pixel size etc will be coming soon just head that one off.  Also images should be RGB and not sRGB or CMYK. The printer will do the conversion to CMYK (and it's important he does that, not you)

Funny how all the photos so far, all the Tigers have beaks, including the road versions. Mine's no exception :047:

Admin has now transferred the  original "general discussion" thread onto the photo competition sub-board so this thread is no longer needed.
Suggest we use the other thread for general banter to avoid the duplication.
