    Thanks benjiboy, I wandered what they were talking about, but didn't like to point it out.

    Actually, I'm thinking 'portret' is the Dutch spelling (and TheToadMen is in the Netherlands).

    I've seen that from other Dutch contributors as well. Surely it's not that hard to understand what they mean...

    It is Dutch, indeed. It is pronounced exactly the same, it was late at night so I didn't notice the error at the time

    And congratulations on your anniversary!!!

    Can we please have posts in English? I don't think many APUG members speak Dutch.

    Let me put it this way: if you project the digitals on a wall, make shot of it with an analogue camera, develop & print the negative, scan the print, then: yes.
    Otherwise: nope!!

    I do not speak Duch, but portrait in Slovenian is spelled portret as well (as is in Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Ukrainian,...)

    So we have an East European preference for this word. Do we know the country % make-up of APUG members?

    Portret=portrait is not too difficult to figure out!

    BTW, that is not me in my avatar.
