It's your lucky day! It's Free! It's Free! You've arrived at the spot on my site where, on the 1st Friday of every month, I'll post one of my favorite photos for you to download for your own personal use and enjoyment. (personal use only, please)
There are several sizes of each photo available ranging from a whopping 1920x1200 to a mini 400x250 (sizes are approximate as I choose not to crop my photos to fit, instead I adjust picture size to the largest dimension. In the largest size here 1920 pixels). Here's a quick guide to the sizes. First size is in pixels, the second is print size at 150dpi (the same resolution used on this site for purchases)
S = 400x250 or 2.5x1.5
M= 600x375 or 4x2.5
L= 800x500 or 5x3
XL= 1024x640 or 6.5x4
X2= 1280x800 or 8.5x5
X3= 1600x1000 or 10.5x6.5
O= 1920x1200 or 12.5x8 (perfect for a desktop picture on that 21" widescreen monitor!)
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DOWNLOAD PROCEDURE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1. Click on the photo you want to download. The photo will open in an overlay window on top of this window.
2. At the top left you'll see a list of sizes S, M, L, XL, X2, X3, and O. Click on the size you want to download.
3. Probably the easiest way of downloading is to just click and hold on the photo and then "Drag and Drop" it to your location of choice on your computer. Alternatively, you can Right-Click on the photo and select the download option from the pop-up menu that appears. (Control-Click on a Mac. Sorry, I'm not sure of the equivalent on a PC).
4. Your photo will magically appear where you dropped it in the "Drag and Drop" method or wherever you've specified for downloads to go if you use the Right Click method. .
PS: If I miss a posting here and there, please don't send me angry emails. And please check back again as I may just be a bit late or better yet, out and about taking more photos!
Plus while you're here, why not look around a bit? An easy way to start is to simply click the link below each picture which will take you to the Gallery that photo is from.
White Globe Lily (White Fairy Lantern) - Calochortus albus
With a multitude of flower shots from the last month it was a tough choice but in the end this one won out because it was new to me. With those hairs peeking out it will be interesting to see how this looks when it opens all the way (if it does that?!?). You can see more from the Gallery this photo is in by going to the Rancho Canada del Oro - Mayfair Trail Gallery or just click this link: http://smu.gs/10vFUKq
Ah... spring showers and the return of green to the California hills. Doesn't get much nicer than that! See more from this Gallery at: http://smu.gs/14MiVTl
