A lot of people on POTN recommend Yongnuo flashes as alternatives also.

What program do you use to resize Speedie? And thanks for the tips!

Also does it make a difference on the image size you choose on the camera itself? Or is it best to use the highest quality and go form there?
When you go to upload your pics, I like to use "Fotki Java Uploader v3.0". Once you click on this, the upload applet pops up via Java. At the bottom right of your screen, click on the "Settings" tab. Click on the "Resizing" tab and select "Keep original sizes on upload". You're now ready to upload your pics.

As far as programs go, I use solely CS5. If you have it, I can write up a short how to for you.

I recently purchased the Canon D60 and am loving it.

Lot to learn still but working hard at it and just snapping pictures of which I seem to mostly delete. Ive read a couple of books that were highly rated. Namely Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson and The Digital Photography Book, Vol 1 by Scott Kelby. Would be interested if anyone has anymore reading suggestions?

Also picked up Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Working on photos on my computer rig is quite amazing and thought yall might find this pic amusing.

The screen is actually larger than the real tank.

That's ok for you guys, but my feminist sensibilities made me take out the "pimp" in my sig... ; )

I reckon ill join as well! Picked up a Canon EOS Rebel XTi 400D w/ 18-55mm kit lens on evilbay Should get it sometime next week. Should be interesting getting into DSLR cameras considering Ive never even really used a good point and shoot. I must admit it was really Nicks pictures that made me get it lol. Not that I expect to get anything near his level of quality but I hate using my cell phone camera.
