Anything Goes..

It's time for a new challenge over at Anything Goes this week & Christmas is definately in the air!

Christmas Atc


No matter what I try THIS keeps happening to this one photograph. GGGGRRRRRR.....

All week I've wanted to blog this Atc for Anything Goes & this is the official line from Blogger....

The sideways photo problem is an incompatibility between the auto-rotate feature of your camera and either p[icasa where our photos are stored or the blogger interface. Youcan prevent it by disabling it in your camera's menu. It is most likely to happen with a Canon camera, but I have seen reports of it with a Nikon and with Kodak.
For those pictures which upload sideways, there is no cure within blogger or picasa. I have found two methods to fix them. If I rotate the image, one quarter turn at a time all the way around to theproper orientation, then they have uploaded properly.

The DT have some gorgeous inspiration over at Anything Goes this week to get you in the Christmassy mood! (& they amazingly got my photo to publish the right way !!)

I used a gorgeous snowman stamp from Creative Expressions, lots of Crackle paint & Distress Inks available from the Craft Den. Hope you can join us this week... there's still time!

Thanks for all the lovely get well wishes..xx I've been told it's going to be 6-8 weeks recovery time, hopefully!! 

Have a great weekend. Hugs, Gez.xx

    Gorgeous ATC...really Christmasy, HUGS XXX

  3. This is beautiful Gez. Xmas ATCs eh? I haven't even got my head round the fact that it's October yet! Hope your jab works. May get to your parts 24/10.
    Luv Joanne xx

  4. Blogger seems to be winding everyone up, it's an absolute pain. This happened to me with one of my photos I uploaded so took my camera (Canon)to Jessops and they altered a setting, not had a problem since. But this new way of uploading photos is driving me scatty.
    Love your ATC, the crackle idea is good for a winter effect.

  5. Well done ongetting it the right way up! Blogger is a pain sometimes. Have you heard about the picasa photo default settings? Unless you change them, ALL your photos from yur blog which are duplicated in your picasa album, are available for people to copy. I had an email from Alison (Craftytrop) forwarding a link so if you need it, email me via my blog and I can send it on to you.

  6. Loquat is for cough and lung in Chinese medicine. Sometimes i would take the Ninjiom Pei Pa Koa which is an extract of loquat when got scratchy throat.

  11. Well done for persevering, especially as you've had a rotten week.
    Love the ATC, I guess it's time to get started on the C word! xxx

  12. Am I missing something about a new way of uploading photos or is it because I haven't changed to the new blogger template.
    Great Xmas atc and I too have still not got my head around the fact that we are on tattie holidays already and it will be nearly the end of October when we go back to school!!
