Georg, interesting comment. No offense taken. That was a first try at using a FM software I purchased on this site. It is Web Presenter WP PRO, for reducing the size of pics for the web. I will go back and explore what may not be working.

I went this route as my initial pics appeared too small when uploaded. What method do you use to assure the pic is large enough for this MF Glass site?

Bob FWIW, after I develop my image in LR (I shoot everything in RAW), I export it to a folder on my desktop. If you're using LR you can set an export preset to size the image any way you want. For images in landscape mode I'll generally make it a 1000px on the long end. In portrait mode I make it 800px on the long end.

When I upload an image to this thread, I simply hit browse and pick the image out of one of the folders.

Hope this helps.

A few questions for those of you who use metal lens hoods.

Do you leave them on all the time, even in the bag? And if so, how do you deal with the lens cap?

Not in the bag, no. Not enough space.

Regarding the lens caps, long fingers help and use the caps with the pinch centers.

Fimally got off my butt and took some pictures - even though it's a heavenly day today these were all taken indoors since Ingrid won a magnificent bunch of roses at a rose garden "open day" yesterday. These are real roses (not the glasshouse variety) and have filled the house with magnificent fragrance.

First though a couple of my lenses (each cost me $15) (taken with the 105 2.5 and tubes)

Who could resist lenses at that price. Jose you truly have a couple of real prizes there!

Thanks for your input Mark. I have one center pinch cap, but it's made by Tamron and doesn't fit right. I guess I'll have to break down and get a Nikon cap. Or just not keep the lens hood on in the bag.

Bob, I use Photoshops "save for web" (JPG, quality 70 most of the time) after downsizing the images in Photoshop.
I host my pictures elsewhere (at flickr) and place a link here for inline-display.
Leighton's suggestions should work of course, but the Software you've bought should work too
Looking at your pictures from the dog-show it seems that the software re-scaled the images to a given proportion, this might caused the "clinched" look. It's probably a matter of unintentionally changed/selected settings.
Please excuse my English.

Leighton, I leave screw-in metal hoods on all the time and use center-pinch caps to protect the front lens. For longer lens hoods Op-Tech's hood-hats work well. I take snap-on metal hoods off for transport and carry them reversed on the lens. Some metal-hoods accept a very large cap at the "sunny side", the HK-2 for the 24/2 AI for instance will take a 77mm cap.

Thanks Georg, I'll look in to the "sunny side" caps. This would be a good work-around.
