Robin you can save the photo to a file, then go into the name and change the .TIFF to .jpg
Else open the scan in paint, and then click save as, then click the jpeg;jpg in the drop down menu.

Good piccie !


I was able to rename the file in Zoombrowser, the Canon software, but the Data Type did not change it becomes .jpg.ti and it is still a TIFF file. My Photoshop doesn't offer me the option of changing Tiff to Jpeg. What program is Paint?

Paint is the basic image tool software embeded in your windows installation , it allows basic drawing and painting ( as suggested by the name ) , and images treatment ( cropp , resize , save...).
Normally it should be already installed on your computer ( if you run a windows PC of course , and not a Mac ) , browse in the start menu : all programs / accessories /paint

Am I too late for the party?...If not, I'd fancy a Guiness please, Marc. Thanks and Cheers.

Tony - Bitchenly splendid painting! :up: :up: :up: . The overall palette selection you have utilised makes the painting seductively attractive.

Thanks for that information, I didn't even know that that program was lurking there,as I always Photoshop. So here is the Chapparal as scanned on a photo copier:

It doesn't look so good when I double click on it,so perhaps it has to be saved first.

(Tom Johnson) - Tony - Bitchenly splendid painting!


Thank you Tom, first wickedly, now bitchenly, I'm getting cooler every day. Perhaps I should go for another name-change. Snoop Pencil Tone? The gold crown helps, but as it is a bit far back in my gob I have to adopt a fearsome grimace to reveal it. I've tried practicing infront of a mirror, but it doesn't look very attractive, even to me, and I dribble a lot.

In fact is it Lotus 56. Lotus 64 raced in 1968 year and was fitted with Ford V8 engine.



...just a small correction: Lotus 56 raced in 1968. Lotus 64 was intended to race in 1969, but was withdrawn after Andretti put it in the wall following a rear right hub failure. The 64 never raced at all. Andretti won, but in a Hawk Ford.





Otherwise, what a joy this thread is with Maestro Matthews' (or Matthieu) wonderful drawings, backed by all the rest!

You're right, my fault. :(

Lotus 64 never raced at all, but Lotus 56 yes. Except known Lotus 56B in F1 1971, raced clones of original Lotus 56 in formula USAC 1969 and 1970 but with another engines - like Offy and Plymouth.

If you search for Goodwood FoS 2008 and photos threads you will see the full story and pictures of the unraced survivor.

There is a good coloured cutaway of the Dolphin Porsche, qv Ken Miles, on a site operated by TNF's Frank Sheffield, but I cannot find the site now. More than reluctant to post the image, copyright etc

@ beighes, thank you for your wishes
Tony, thank you for the beautiful birthday card, you know it's one of my favourites!
Tim, thank you for your good wishes, be assured my contribution is only to satisfy my hobby, I have gained far more here than I have ever contributed.
@ovfi, nice to hear from you again...so. now I am a sexbomb ?
@Tom, it's never too late for a party, the pub here closes at two, so how come I always manage to get in before doors close ?
@elno, thank you for your wishes.

Well, the Friday was a plain old working day, but had a lovely dinner with the whole family at an Indonesian restaurant near the Feijenoord football stadium.
As I was driving my mum and grandson, of course I spent the evening drinking the clear colourless stuff that comes out of a tap...yes they sell it to you in a
bottle....but who believes in fairy tales ?
Anyway time to read my fanmail now and have a sip of some real drinking stuff.

Might as well share Serge Bellu's Ferrari 312T4 with you while I'm at the keyboard.

One week ago i was supposed to post a scan here , for rewarding the 3 caballeros who gived me a good laugh ( higly valuable moments in this times ! ) , but i had to make my way back to work and....Eeeeeerg ! i almost forgotten how boring it is , and how much free time consuming it is too :evil:

Anyway , here are some i like ( cars or cutaways )....

This big red was under surgery to merge the 2 pages of the book where it was printed , and sorry if it look like more a butcher's work....

Voilà , bonne journée a tous , end of the french parenthèse.

Many thanks for that effort. I tried to "Photostitch" it with Zoombrowser, but the program kept complaining that the overlap was too large.

I trust that you have recovered from your birthday.

Scroll down and you have several attractive cutaways.

The RV-8 cutaway is the first of a series of cutaways I am doing for RV enthusiasts. It's a wonderful gig since I don't have to deal with corporate structure. Simply communicate with owner's of these aircraft, then put all the information in an illustration and produce high-res top quality prints. So far, I've completed the RV-8, RV-8A and two "custom" cutaways of specific owner's planes. Currently, I'm 10 days into creating a cutaway of an RV-7 and -7A. It's especially fun because Van's Aircraft Company, the manufacturer of these aircraft, is based at the airport where I hang out for therapy.

Speaking of planes, on the back burner is the desire to do an ultra detailed cutaway of my favorite plane, the wonderful Spitfire. I plan to go to England for this project so.... Tony - if you are reading this, could you put a beer in the fridge for me?

Cheers, Tom

I've seen more drawings of planes that have flown over the road that chickens cross..........

which makes you wonder...do many chickens cross roads ?
do many small planes always fly over roads frequently crossed by chickens?
is it always the same road chickens cross? .........if so, we might set up a barbecue closeby

if so many road-crossing-chickens end up hanging on the pitot tubes of small planes, then the answers to the question
on the "why did the chicken cross the road" thread.. are all wrong !

Marc,

A belated Happy Birthday to you from a 'flu-stricken (not of the H1N1-variety, I'm afraid - I also looked like a swine before, so no difference there) youngster! :wave:

Marc,

Could that 'other' Renault RS01 stem from one of the British magazines? To me it has the style of John Hostler or Dick Ellis...

Why did the chicken have a pitot tube up its vent?

Because it crossed the runway without looking. Let that be a warning to all you young chickens in Cutawayland! Look down-wind, look up-wind, look down-wind again, if it's all clear, run like buggery. And DON'T SLOW DOWN ABOUT HALF WAY ACROSS LIKE LOTS OF OLD HUMANS DO! Cluck!

To stop RDV biting his nails and pacing the room - a little offering. This was the second 250GTO I did, due to a copyright issue that I think I mentioned in an earlier post, and was a real rush job.
