Thought you might like to see this photo

One of the less favourable aspects of the BBC WW2 Peoples War site was the poor reproduction of photos that we, the customers, sent in to accompany our stories.
The one you see here, accompanied my story "Return to Cassino" and hopefully you will get a better view of the Abbey perched above the British Cemetery.


Could I also take this opportunity to inform newcomers and remind others that if you click on any photo you will see it full size. In this context do not hesitate even to send large A4 size photos, there is no restriction on file size. Editor

Well done Ron,much better you can see the Abbey. At least we can look forward to better photo's. If in doubt send them to Peter he is a Dab hand at clearing them up. Sorry Peter more work.

I agree Ron's photo is very good. Interesting to see the better shot of Monte Cassino.

I have still been unable to post a photo to this site. I've managed to create a separate Blog site called "People's War" and save a photo and story to that.

Does anybody know how I can post a photo with a story to this site please? Is there perhaps an 'editorial control' somewhere that is blocking me doing this, or is it just a plain case of me being lost?

Another question is: why are there so many 'Rons' interested in the Second World War? Seriously, welcome to everyone joining the site!

My picture organiser has a blog button on the bottom tool bar. When I put the Mark 2 Churchill on, I went to the organiser, brought up the picture, pressed the blog and followed instructions.
Google have a free download organiser called Picasa2 and for amateurs like me is enough although I also have Serif Photo Plus 8.
It is much harder to get a photo from there unless you rescan it into the Serif first. At 77 years old next week I just keep pressing all the buttons and get lucky, the only way to go.

Do take a look at theĀ WW2 Blog FAQ. You will find detailed instructions on how to upload and post a picture there.

You do not need Picasa2, although I strongly recommend it for other reasons. All you need do is press the Browse button and then navigate to the image you want. It really is that simple.

The Reason I downloaded Picasa2 was, having tried it as the FAQ says and got the cannot find this file signal a few times I went to my Serif and had even more snafu's.
In a fit of pique I downloaded Picasa2 and "hey presto" all my pictures came together on a single page complete with file numbers and a blog button. Minutes later I had a picture on the blog. Why say more.
