Advice regarding photo restoration group
« on: Tuesday 07 November 17 06:52 GMT (UK) »
I sent a photo for alteration yesterday, just wondered how long it normally takes nowadays  to become visible on the site.  I have posted many a photo for this sort of thing in the past but there was never any sort of moderation for it and it came up almost instantly.

Many thanks
Ewan :)

Hi Ewan

Sarah comes on a few times a day and checks them and then puts them up. I think this moderation was introduced when there were problems about inappropriate images or possible copyright infringements.

Thanks for all your replies, it looks like it failed to post because it was over 900 kb, next hurdle I have is how to reduce it to enable it to post.

Right click photo.... then Open with> Paint

Resize it to about 50%

Then go Save As  rename it, you still have original then also.
