« Part 2: It's about to stand on its own... Part 3 of Bowed keyboard- Streichklavier series Part 4: soundboard done »

Finally! No more work on the floor. Got the bottom in, and legs done. They pop out and will stow in the triangular area for transport.

I think you forgot the exclamation points?

Err…you lost me. Do exlamaion points have something to do with the photo links? I usually put the photos straight on the blog, but it always crops the right half off. I copied (I believe) the html code, and on my screen it shows up as a link that you click on and the picture opens. Any ideas how to get the full photo to show up on the blog page?

Jon You put an exclamation point in front and after the link, LJ will then show the picture in the blog.

Like this ! web-link ! but don’t have a space after the exclamation point. You can then click the preview button and see if it worked.

Oh, got it! The thing is, it looks on my screen the way it does when I use the direct link…or whatever the first option is that photobucket gives you on the dropdown list. Do blogs only allow square photos, or I wonder why it crops so much off?

If you make the picture 640×480 they will not get cropped.

Microsoft makes a small program that will resize pictures for you. You can find it here

Once installed you highlight one or more picture files and do a right click and select “resize pictures” then select the size you want.

Jon I use flicker and my pictures show everything. Nothing is cropped. I’ve seen some on LJ that use photobucket and when you click on the picture you go to the full view on photobucket. I don’t know how that is done.

Thanks for the help guys! This has been driving me nuts ever since I posted my first picture. I have photoshop…I’ll resize them in there and repost them. Guess I should have read how to post photos instead of diving in blindly, but…that’s normally how I do things :)

When you upload them to photobucket you can also specify the size you want it to save it as.

Thanks Gary! I’m slow, but eventually- if you keep hammering, it will sink in.

If you want a larger image, LJs will handle 800×600 without cropping.

You can resize them if you click edit on Photobucket.

I have to mention that I love your work.

Leaving all the discussion about the photos aside -

My WORD!!!
What is the size of this instrument?
Will you be building the inside works, as well?
Is this a job or are you doing it for yourself?

I’m dumbfounded.
The workmanship is beautiful.
Please keep posting as you go.

Donbee-

This thing is about 7 ft long and the case is 11” deep- I am building it for myself, and will do the inside works as well. I will try to keep my progress updated every few days…hope to have strings on in a week or two. Glad you like it!
