MT, if you right click on the photo, then choose "open in new window", the photo will come back in a smaller frame (or whatever the geeks call it).
Life, #75, that's a neat piece of history. Can you show more of it, please?

Neater yet, with all the "fancy" work on it. Thanks.
Back in my youthful innocence I had a much older acquaintance that had a big ol' English double rifle and a Snyder that he took me along and let me shoot one day. Need I tell you I got an education from each of those things?

Appreciate the 'puter trick.  Been cussing this forum and a few others about the oversize pics that you can't see.  Learned something new.  Was dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century and still running behind.  GW
  

Inside every old person is a young person wondering what the h*** happened.

Goat, you are welcome to the trick- but I only learned it from Marlinguy myself. Until he bailed me out I felt about the same as you probably did. Lottsa good stuff around here, ain't there?

I have found that if I click on the file name above the too-big picture (usually something-something.jpg) it will usually reduce to a more viewable image.  Quick and easy.

Regards, Joe

I am going to try what "calledflyer" said - right click to reduce size & edit - we'll see if it works.
