Subject:SCANNING FRENZY!!
Time:12:11 am
Current Mood:Scanning exhaustion.
For normal people, this would probably have been a 5 minute scanning job. For me, its taken up the whole of the evening. I cannot get my head round all the complexities of sizing pics. And now everything I scan is covered in black specks - even though my scanner is pristine!! So I have to despeckle everything. Oh well, I did promise I would scan my other two Orc photos - but they've come out a bit small. Except on the last preview, the first one was huge and the other two small. I've also scanned two of the pics Elijah signed for me - these have come out extremely huge. At least they were the last time I looked. I also had Lij sign a pic of him as himself - but I'm too tired of scanning for one night - so God knows what size that would have turned out. In short, I don't know what size any of these will be.


This was the first pic. If it comes out small, Lij will have a black speck on his forehead. If it comes out large - he won't. Can someone explain that to me please?



Then he pulled me in closer - hence my rather stunned expression!!



I know I have a very strange expression here - but who can blame me when he placed his hand on my knee!! Look at his cheeky face - I could swear he knows exactly the effect he's having!!!



Now if Photobucket resize everything to 250 thingies, why have the next two come out so huge when they were the same size as the first 3 pics? I will never get my head round this!!

You chose such beautiful pictures for him to sign. Those pictures of you together are so cute!
Thanks for taking the time to scan them, and yes, sizing images can be very frustrating.

With thousands of beautiful pics to choose from - it was quite difficult to decide - but those two are definitely very high on my list of all time favourites:)

He definitely knew what he was doing in the 'knee' photo. ;) Look at that pleased expression on his face.

I decided to have 3 in the hope that at least one of them would be ok - knowing what a terrible picture I usually take!! Surprisingly I was very pleased with all of them:)

Thank you - it was actually a very last-minute decision to take it - then I remembered that on the couple of occasions I'd worn it I'd felt good:)

These are FANTASTIC!!! I can tell that you had your op "AF"..which means "After Woodfrodo" because he is wearing the bracelett she gave him.
Well you two look very cute together and he looks like he is enjoying himself! Good choices too for the autographs- Gorgeous pics!

Oh - I didn't realise Woodfrodo had given him the bracelet! How lovely for her to see him wearing it in all those pics. Your pic is lovely too, btw:)

Wonderful pics! My favorite is the third one with his hand on your lap and your arm intwined around his arm. So nice! We have to make it a point to find each other next time!

Ooooh, I love the photo op pictures!! Especially the third one!I believe what you say about 'cheeky face' and the 'effect he's having' is absolutely true!! And the pictures you asked him to sign are a great choice indeed.

Thanks so much for sharing, and as for the sizes: well done. Anyone who can work with a scanner has my respect.

Oh Pauline, they are gorgeous - to treasure forever! I agree about his cheeky expression where he has his hand on your knee - the little devil!!!

And your hand resting on his arm - swooon!

The first one he signed is one of my all time photos of Frodo - isn't it just the most beautiful picture ever? I don't think I will ever get over his beauty - every time you see his picture, it hits you freshly every time *happy sigh*.

I need a serious Frodo-watching session!

"To treasure forever"

Absolutely!! Its wonderful to have something tangible to remind me of those few lovely moments - otherwise I know I'd start doubting that it ever happened!!

"I don't think I will ever get over his beauty - every time you see his picture, it hits you freshly every time *happy sigh*."

Its exactly the same for me - I've just been looking at some pics of him arriving in New Orleans for Mardi Gras & as soon as I clicked there it was - the immediate impact that makes you gasp. And that Frodo pic, I think if I was forced to choose just one favourite that would have to be it - there's just something indescribably lovely about his expression.

I do hope you're ok - I know you've been having a lot of troubles lately. {{{HUGS}}}

Lovely photos - you look so relaxed! And he is just... gorgeous! To think that he spontaneously put his hand on your knee... I am speechless. What a wonderful memory!

Lucky you!

Surprisingly, even though I was a bag of nerves while waiting in the queue, the minute I sat down next to him I did relax - he seems to have that effect on you:)

Despite your scanning nightmare, these pics look great! And I agree that you chose such beautiful Frodo pictures for Elijah to sign.

Three photo ops -- lucky you!!!

Hi, my dear, you both look very enjoyable, very cosy to each other-like very close friends who let another of your friends to take a pic for confirmation nice time, what you have had together :o) Really nice, very nice pics. And the Frodo´s pics what you chose are unbelievable expressed what he is like Frodo, what he meant for you, for all of us. Thank you!
P.S. Pauli I wrote some wish to ORC LJ page, please, can you help me? I appologize for trouble you again and again
