Fear me. I have PowerDVD. I can now do screencaps.

To be honest, it was already on my pc when I bought it over 2 years ago. The first dvd I tried was - here's a surprise - FOTR. The blue warning message came up, followed by the logo - then nothing. Couldn't find out what the problem was so abandoned it. Until a few weeks ago I decided to try again but this time I tried one of the discs from the Appendices and it worked! But this is the weird thing - it will play all the discs from the appendices, it will also play a couple of non-LOTR films I've tried, but it will NOT play any of the actual LOTR films. Does anyone understand this?

Anyway, I've been capping like a mad thing. These are mainly from the FOTR discs, mostly Fro, some Lij. Oh, and there's one of Sean and, er ... one of a cake. Some are a bit on the fuzzy side - please bear with me, I'm a capping novice. Also, Photobucket say that any images over 250k will be resized which could result in bad distortion. Well, these were massive but they don't look distorted to me - do they? Although they may be a bit on the blurry side compared to the originals. And ... there are rather a lot:) Right, enough with the technical stuff ...

Something really seems to be amusing Elijah here!

Elijah's 19th birthday cake!! Doesn't it look scrumptious?

Leave him alone you bullies!!

I love the way Sean is looking at Lij here!!

I loved the one with the four hobbits standing.

So do I - trouble is it came out rather dark so I had to lighten it which seemed to result in a rather grainy effect. That pic, and the others taken by the horse & cart, as well as being for the dvd were part of the 'Vanity Fair' photoshoot - and were the first pics of the hobbits ever seen by the public.

I think the long time they spent in make-up also had a very positive side. Its probably the time they got to know each other really well and, of course, it gave Lij a chance to indulge his passion for his beloved music before the long days work.

I didn't realise the pics would come out so large - I'm really confused by this. I mean if Photobucket reduced them to 250k, and they were all bigger than than to strat with, then you'd think they'd all be the same size!! I think I have a lot to learn about this sizing thing!!
