Re: [Peterhead] Scotlands People
- Thanks Alistair. Now more or less sorted - just different.
My problem was that I had no image to manipulate, either
by reversing white & black or by viewing through a different
program. I eventually changed my User Profile on Scotland's
People and can now download it. I still have to use a viewer
so maybe I need to experiment with the user profile again.
They sure made some huge changes this time round. The
best one is the identification of the viewed images. Previously
you only had the date/time of downloading - no use at all if you
wanted to look back to see what was there and hadn't noted their
For such a good site to be able to make such huge improvements
is very impressive.
