Topic tags/keywords: question thought view size request

Oh no not him again….yes indeed. I have noticed something that we ( yes me too ) are all guilty of. We fail to give demensions of what the viewer is looking at. Take a box for instance…is it 20”x15” or 8”x6”. Some are very hard to tell. I will start giving this information myself. Hell put a dollar bill next to it…couldn’t hurt.

That’s the way I see it….

I agree. But with inflation maybe a $20 bill would be more accurate.

Most excellent idea. I’ll try to remember to do that myself.

Now that’s a rant worth agreeing with! ...of course, all superfluous praise aside. (ducking)

Is the size different if it laying down or standing up?
