    Thanks for letting me know about the dry cleaners and cutting out the dress for pictures. I wasnt sure of how to clean it, and doing the cut-outs thingie is a great idea!
    What a gorgeous black dress! Do you have photos of your collection on-line? I would LOVE to see them all!
  2. wowee - what a dress! (to both Peggy and Anne)!!!!

    Oh that's just a little Dior I had knocking about :)

    I find that all my Ceil's have done splendidly at the dry cleaners, never had a problem and they come up really well. As I said if you want the dress cut out I'm happy to do it for you.

    So sweet of you to offer, Anne!

    Yes, if you can cut it out for me, that would be wonderful, because, as you have probably already guessed, I have NO clue how to do that either!

    Are the pictures I have ok to use for the cutouts? Or would you recommend other poses or closer shots?

    I don't know if you'll like these - I did a bit of ironing and had to clone out your hand.

    Wow! Now you see me, now you don't! Way cool, Anne! I think they look great! What do you think? Do I need other photos?
    I know to wait a bit until things pick up on ebay(thanks for the advice Sue!). I need to do more homework on how the whole selling on ebay thing works, but I'm slightly familiar with the basics. Should I set a minimum price that I would sell it at? What would you recommend the minimum to be?

    I have changed these to jpg's which seem to have affected the colour. You had them saved as bitmaps which is a very large file - jpg's are more common. I can try and return them to bitmaps if you wish.

    Wow Peggy - what a great dress, and does it look swell on you! But I agree - what a fabulous item to get your vintage- selling motor running :)

    And WOW ANNE - you're getting pretty slick editing with that drawing tablet of yours - I'm so frustrated with mine, well, there's only one solution, obviously - I must bring mine over to London and get a little tutoring!

    Well Carolyn, I will come with you! I draw but can not
    master that pen thing! The mouse has me in it's grip!

    Peggy, for an auction listing I would resize these so that they are just a touch smaller. Larger pics take longer to
    load and bidders on dial up will get impatient.

    If you don't know how to resize, one of us can do it for you.

    What photo program do you have?

    Thanks Sue!
    If I have a photo program in my computer, I've never used it. This weekend I went to CVS and got the Kodak picture CD thing, and when I used the cd in my computer, it downloaded some software. I cropped the photos off using that, then saved them. I'm not sure about how to make them smaller, but would love to learn!
