Welcome to Fibsboard Forum match 18 vs Bushsucksjuanz (5pts).

Thanks to juanz for being our 18th Guest player.

Say if you want more options.

Bear with me as I struggle with this new process.  One potential glitch, my version of Preview doesn't seem to allow me to set up the board size as directed in the instructions...

preview, crop then
Tools/adjust size eg 5

then save as jpeg -- use slider to reduce to 25kb or thereabouts..


also once attached, go to the post and right click/copy image location-- and paste result in poll question title by clicking 'edit poll'

I request the board colors used by Julie, i.e., better contrasting colors.  I cannot read the numbers on the board to make my vote with the current board.

Thank you,

socksey

Welcome to the forum match BushSucks!

Thanks for facilitating stiefnu and good luck. I removed one 24-18 13-9 option in the vote as it was duplicated, and put a time limit of 2 days on the vote. You may want to reduce or increase that perhaps.

As for the move:

My version of Preview doesn't have that option. In Tools, I seem to have nothing about size.

If you click on the board in my posting (as opposed to the one with the poll) it should enlarge.  However, I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for that. I'll keep my eye on duplicate votes in future. Who was it that said "Vote early and vote often"?  ;)

oh yeah forgot-- when you copy image location from the attached file, click the pic first so u get the larger view to copy.

instead of preview you could use seashore -- a free open source image editor that works with os x -- you should be able to google a version that will work on your machine -- if u get any probs ask and i'll blast u a copy

re size -- as we are posting loads of game diagrams we need to constrain the image size if poss to 25-27kb or thereabuts as i am running out of backup server capacity etc

cheers

LARGER does not improve contrast.  I still cannot read the numbers clearly.  I'll wait to vote until you change the board.............

In the interests of getting this show on the road, I've changed my vote.  I almost always play P, so it will be instructive to see where S takes us. 

I'll post the XG book opening (which I haven't looked at yet) once the move is made.

Hopefully this is clearer for you.  I'll leave this up for an further hour or so (now 16:20UTC)

Still haven't cracked the trick of getting the board into the poll section...

stiefnu, right-click on the board image in your original post, choose "copy picture location" or "copy picture URL" or "copy link to picture" or something like that. Then you can paste this link between the IMG tags in your original poll (I just changed it, you can check it out to see what it looks like).
