To upload a photo you click on "Additional Options" then browse to the photo and post. I've stated that the maximim size is 1000x1000 pixels this is not strictly true but the file size must not exceed 512Kb or it will be rejected.

If you need to reduce the size of the photo then take a look at this thread http://www.veraplayafriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=33.0 there's lot's of advice on free software for resizing photos

Thought you might like to know we actually have spring on our door step in UK as well, at long last!

Thanks for the resizing help.

'El Balconcito' will be happy to judge all entries and provide a small prize for the winning entry should you so desire.

Okay then , we have a topic, a prize and what about the venue of El Balconcito, Curry Night for the judging?  Personally I'm waiting for the opportunity for my chosen topic for spring - pleased to report though that the mimosa is just coming into bloom - and I bet the spring flowers on the Cabreras will be amazing after our wet winter!
Happy owners and winter residents at Vera Playa, our piece of Naturist Paradise.

OK shall make little prints of all the submitted pics up to the 27th, so they can all be displayed at El Balconcito on the Curry Night for judging ... Cabreras sounds like it will be wonderful... so a trip up the mountain for us is definitely on the cards...

As the frosts fade here, I'm out walking and cycling again (swimming never stops) after a winter of being holed up beside the fire and eating the remainder of the Christmas choccies in time for the Creme Egg season.

 I'm almost certain to be over to VP in June, so I'd appreciate if that month's competition is 'Signs of a Waistline'  ;D
