    Yep. That was the first thing I tried, being the TV / camera guy that I am. Even used some software with its own proc amp so I could adjust things manually.

    I understand. I've fixed it. Now the first screen opens up for you to choose an amount. After you put in the amount, it takes you to the second screen where you can choose either "card" or "paypal." If you choose "paypal" it rocks right over paypal. Check it out.

    The payment method is through Paypal. But you're right Lp, the payment is made on this site with a credit or debit card, so unless you have a PayPal debit card, you wouldn't have the option of pulling directly from your PayPal balance even though PayPal is processing the payment. I'll add a PayPal button to it so that feature will be added. Thanks for pointing that out - and thanks to everyone that's helping out with this!

    Commonwealth Crossing: A $30 Million Boondoggle?

    Best thing that could have happened to Rives Road is for City Council to have let "Factory Man" put his factory back.

    Computer Problems and Solutions

    I agree. 2 year-old Dell Inspiron laptops. Not the most expensive, but not the cheapest. I google searched and went to Dell's website and the answer was pretty much the same... uninstall the driver, delete the camera from the system, reboot and let everything reinstall. That I did, but nothing changed. Well, maybe just a slight improvement. Still very grainy.

    Me to, probably still have them laying around somewhere. Bad, bad experience for me. Totally unreliable.

    Post a Picture you took

    Here's the original. Adobe Photoshop. There is a cool app I like called Prism that has a bunch of presets (filters) if you use a camera phone.

    Post a Picture you took

    It is a photo layered with a filter that makes it look like a painting. I'm in a couple of photo groups and you wouldn't believe the kind of argument they get into over the use of filters. There are strong opinions on extreme ends. When I shoot something for news it's never retouched in anyway, ever. When I shoot for fun I love playing with filters until I find something that looks cool to me.
