I tried to post the 1st challenge, but the server seems to have gotten a bit stricter with the picture size limits (800pixels) so I have to resize everything :( :wall:

Sorry for the delays, this is turning into a major anti-photobucket rant :evil: :evil:

If you have use it recently, they have changed everything, and taken most of the control from the user :sniper: :sniper: .

I can't see the .jpg file names easily anymore. I now have to label them :cry:

I can no longer download my images from photobucket to resize them and put them back, so I have to go back to the originals :wall: :wall: :wall:

What a pain the @$$.

Oh well I will persevere... you will have your challenge, and you had better all enter for my efforts :tongue:

Don't let your courage fail you AdrianP! Photobucket is a pain in the neck (or lower) nowadays! Sorry for all the time you have already spent on this challenge! Still looking forward to it! :thumbs_up:

After resizing everthing to a max of 800 pixels wide, the cheeky sanparks server only now tells me that there is also a 800 pixel high restriction too!!!!!

AHHHHHHH another hour of resizing to do.

Well done Sharifa, for submitting the first challenge entry of 2013 :clap: :clap: :clap:

Sorry guys, I have just gone through these with my other half to get an outsiders view, and have realised that some of these are very difficult :redface: 8/10 for this challenge will be an excellent score! So lets see what you can muster up.

@ huntsman ... no entry received?
