Dear Classic-Castle,

I've had a wonderful stay in the kingdom of Brick Tales. [url=http://www.classic-castle.com/bricktales/henry.html]Here are some things from my scrapbook.

Soon I'll be travelling to a distant land. I'll try to write to you again from there.

Yours,
Henry

Despite what the giant sign said, I could find no holly in these woods.


Hahaha! :lol: This line cracked me up.

Great work, Bruce. A great combination of excellent building, humour and good presentation.

Looks like Henry had a lot of fun! Henry's visit to the Hollywood sign was my favorite too. Made me laugh :).

I would have to agree. The opening picture was probably my favorite, however. "Let me pass, good sir knight!" said to a Stormtrooper on a dewback is hilarious. Having everything be seen from Henry's perspective gave a unique touch to it. Excellent job!

On the subject of jobs, I read through the "alchemist's" lab section and it was hilarious. Expecially the disclaimer. :lol: But that's off-topic.

The Hollywood sign was funny, and I really liked the pick-up soccer/basketball games... but nothing struck more true to me than that traffic scene... lol! I lived in LA for a short time, and boy! I didn't know traffic came like that!

Still, a lot of people were nice, especially compared to nyc. 8)

Well all, Henry has now spent over twenty-four hours in Olds. He has not had a perfectly pleasant day, but so far it's been manageable:

My apologies for the pixellated look of the pictures. I have to save the pictures about three times, and I haven't figured out how to save as a .jpg without losing quality...

Also, my apologies if they seem a little slow to load. Either brickshelf is slow right now, or my pics have more bytes than I thought, or else my computer is slow.

Assuming that all goes well (for me, if not Henry), I'll try and do a bunch more on Thursday, hopefully in greater quantities.

Enjoy!

Your pics are actually Bitmaps rather then Jpegs. Did you simply delete the extension .bmp and replace it with .jpg? That's definitely not the way to save image files as a different filetype.
You should open the file (as P5110119.BMP), play a little with the brightness and the dimensions (1280×1024 pixel are way too large, better make them 800×600), then chose in "File" -> "Save as..." and save the pic as Jpeg. While doing this you get an extra menu where you can set the compression rate to 80%. That's still good enough a quality for pics in the internet and at the same time makes the files reasonably small in terms of megabytes.

Very cool! Looks like Henry is having fun. He sure is getting his armor rubbed off though. It is getting hard to see it.
