Post Your Picture (New And Improved) II

Tue Dec 18, 2001 10:07 am

Sorry, but that last thread was getting WAY too long and difficult to load. So I've elected to begin a "sequel" thread to the first.

So here are two pictures of me. I apologize for the horrible scanning quality. The scanner that I have access to is an antiquated piece of junk. But I'm too cheap to go out and buy a new one anyway. I just don't do a lot of scanning anyway.

Anyway, the first picture is my "old" look. Pre Sept.11.

The second picture is how I look now.

Jesus! any chance you could re-size those? They are both about half a meg each. Someone will now need to start Post Your Picture (New And Improved) III!

The second one looks like something out of American History X, no offense intended.

Here is the poster you love to hate. KROC.

Me and my soon to be ex-wife in a rare happy moment. I keep this as proof it wasn't all bad.



Here I am, self-glossin' like only I can.

You sure the first one is just pre- 9/11? Jean shorts have been out of fashion for 10 years. lmao.  Big grin

If someone can tell me HOW to resize them I'll be more than glad to.

hey, I fell off the fashion train about 10 years ago, so I don't care. Besides, jean shorts are comfortable.

But can you tell me why, in the summer time, Millers Outpost, Old Navy, and other "trendy" places still sell them?

Matt, for viewing pictures on a computer screen you only have to scan at 75dpi. Anything higher and the picture gets huge without any increase in quality.

So scanning them at 400 dpi was probably not a wise idea?

Since I am not on the computer I scanned them on, is there still a way to re-size them?

Because they know they'll find suckers like you to buy them. Probably inventory from the last Joan Jett tour.  Laugh out loud

Ok...I lied. Both pictures date back to the Reagan Administration.

Yea, there's a basic photo editor that comes with Office called 'Microsoft Photo Editor' that does the trick if you have Office. Otherwise, MS Paint might be able to do it.

Matt D. I was just taking to the member formerly known as Boeing757Fan, and he said you look a hair club for men client. Actually, maybe even the president!

Is this shot of my ugly mug a little more user friendly?

This photo is about 15 years old. I'm the kid in the cowboy hat. My grandfather and brother are working on my toy tractor. This was in Temple, TX.

Let's not turn this into a 'bash matt d's wardrobe thread.' He likes what he wears, so let him enjoy it. Just a little tip: to make jean shorts oh so much cooler, cut off the bottoms and have the little strings hanging down!

OK, it's taken 3 years, but I've finally been able to get a picture of me online thanks to a coworker who just happened to bring a digital camera to work. This was taken this morning. It's low quality and a shitty pic, but it's all I got.
