Dear Fanta

There is a good tutoria posted by DuQues entitled Tutorial-Flickr. Go onto the forum lists, click on DuQues and search all hi posts to find it. It is pretty easy. You have to load the images onto another website-Flickr I find best.

Hope that helps-a few of us forumites have struggled with this-its easy actually.

Noel

I took this picture last June near the Ntandanyathi hide. It was late in the day and as you can see, the sun was in the wrong place...

This is the first picture I have tried to post and although I read the tutorials I still feel as tho I'm flying without a parachute.

Thanks for the help with the picture CC. My wife and I had just left the hide and a volunteer ranger told us he'd just seen Duke. Shortly after, as we were driving along the S137 Duke just walked towards us.

:clap: Hey there Noel, so glad u raised this topic.Have just returned from 10 amazing days in the KNP and was wondering where I could post my sighting. While cruising from Satara on the S100 on the way to N'wanetsi, I sighted an elephant which I think might be an Albino. His ears when he... sorry or she (did not think to est. the sex) were pale pink, the rest of the body was a slightly darker pink. I took a shot or 2 with my camera :redface: which unfortunately rather old, but perhaps someone out there is familiar with it and can shed some lite on the subject. :? -will post fotos later if neccesary. :?:

Hi Busheyes

I am looking forward to seeing your photos-please post asap.
Best thing to do with photos from an older camera- if is not digital, is to take it to one of these digital printing shops, who can scan it (from the actual photo, or from the negative) onto a disc and once you download these to a modernish computer, you will be able to edit it with a good photo-edit program. I have done so wiht quite a few of my photos (www.outdoorphoto.co.za and search for photos from noelcmn)

And thanks to Ndloti for that amazing pink nosed Buffalo- spooky!
And thanks too to Lorrainepring for that amazing detail of the Impala!

I am glad to see some forumites are quite observant when it comes to our wildlife. Lets have some more!

Havae a great day!

Noel
