    BWKate,

    Get Irfanview. Free from http://www.irfanview.com , small, fast, does everything you need to resize pictures and adjust the tones for posting pictures. If you can't download it, I can email it to you (it's less than 1 Mb).

    Cheap at half the price

    BTW, I'm sitting out this round (too). I'll have to see if I can get some printed before I sign up for another round!

    Thanks for the link Ole,

    I have an Emac G4 Mac computer and I didn't see anything there for Mac OS X systems. Appreciate the thought, though. I'll get there, yet. We have photoshop at the nonprofit artist center I belong to. When I changed the size of the photo it was really small on the screen and very pixelated when I tried viewing it larger? All the photos I see in the gallery look fine when they are larger. I'm afraid mine will look awful when made bigger on the screen. I'll ask our web guy at Xchanges and maybe he can enlighten me.

    Being somewhat dense, I need to understand this. You actually put a stamp on the verso of a 4X6 photo and mail it off unprotected? Do they get mushed and bent and tattered? Any other "rules"?

    That is part of the charm Jim, the way it is treated in the mail. Ilford postcard stock is RC paper so it holds up better. I found the pearl coat further protects it. The glossy tends to get scratched in the mail. Besides it is so much fun getting all the postcards. I usually send out more than I receive.

    I might be persuaded to part with a couple of my precious boxes of postcard stock for a good deal on a future lens?

    Most of them arrive relatively unscathed, but a few get the odd scratch, especially the glossies as Aggie said.
    Also, depending on where you are, you're not necessarily limited to 4 x 6 for a postcard. I think here we can go nearly but not quite up to 5 x 7.

    LOL since I've still got all of your previous lenses.....how could I go wrong?? Actually I'm thinking the J&C museum weight cut to size might have the look and feel of 1919 AZO RPPC's.

    That's no kidding. The last round is at 65% right now. It was still very much worth it though.

    By the way, I sent 3x4 azo contacts mounted to 4x5 2-ply mat board. As far as I know they all survived ok. At least until the recipients threw them in the trash.

    haha! as if! yes it survived fine! In fact I think I've seen more different fine and alternative printing techniques through the postcard exchange than normal sized prints! Some exqusite skills have been shown.

    As to the size of postcards, a new member for this round had the same question, and went off and found this document ( http://www.usps.com/customersguide/_pdf/DMM100.pdf ) which shows in the U.S. the sizes are quite defined, although maybe they don't enforce them as strictly as they could as we've had some larger postcards at times. I haven't looked for an Aussie equivalent document.

    Usually when there have been larger postcards, they have first class letter postage in the US. I'm not sure if that means they get the letter rate internationally or the postcard rate, but it might depend on the country of destination.

    You can send a larger postcard, in other words, but you most likely have to give it the same amount of postage as a letter.
