I see that it says slideshow but I can't seem to get it to work..is there someway to see each photo closeup?
***The slideshow is not working with just one "photo" like this. Copy the original size to PaintShop or any other image preocessing software and zoom!

STUNNING!!! Thank you Laura, Pam, Marie and Linda for all the hard, time-consuming work you put into this. This project was phenomenally brought to fruition! You ladies are the best!

Jarkko, wonderful idea. I was just going to come back to the mosaic thread as a reference. Your idea will make it so much easier to put faces to the names. Can't wait for it to happen. This website you started just gets better and better every single day! Thank you so much!

Warmest regards,
Mary

I have just viewed the birthday poster, its wonderful, really appreciate all the work that has gone into it, thanks to Laura,Pam, Marie, Linda and anyone else who was involved. Thanks to you too Jarkko for keeping all this together! I think it would be a good idea if people wanted to send their photo in, maybe like someone else suggested, where your name is displayed when you write a reply. Once again well done everyone!

I had another look through the poster again, very slowly this time....
I'm gutted, I just can't find my photo....
And whay makes me feel worse, there are at least 5 photo's on there twice....
( In the grand scheme of things, I've never been lucky,
.... so why should I expect that to change now )

Oh, Joan, I'm gutted for you and with you, and I too can see where the program repeated some photos, which I know makes it even worse for you :cry: . My heart is with you.


Love,
Lizzy

First: THANK YOU for all the work you put into this. The poster looks lovely and indeed is a work of art that Leonard will surely appreciate as a thoughtful gift!! It's great to see so many friendly faces and to know that they all have at least one thing in common :D

As to the pictures the program repeated: Mine is one of those but I thought it got to be on the poster twice because one of the pictures was half hidden under the symbols? I feel really sad for those who cannot find their photos... :?

It is wonderful! Maybe some kind of miracle!? Thank you so much Laura, Marie, Pam and Linda!

Joan, I missed your photo too. It is such a beautiful one. And your's too, honey604. I'm twice there. And I hope it is not too late to switch your photos.

I like the permanent gallery idea.

Joan,
Your pic. has been included but is mostly covered - such a shame!
I have just been studying the poster in close-up.
The corner of your photo is visible - I recognised your cap/hat :
Just above Leonard's head is a close-up of Charley Webb. Next to her is Dino Soldo (to the left as you look at the poster). The next one along to the left of Dino is you - take a look in zoom.
