Well, they warned you, didn't they? :) Maybe your originals are still intact, and if you pay $30 ransom they'll be back?
You can't trust anyone to keep your personal belongings for free forever. CAPITALIZOM!!! :)
I, too, received a message like this maybe a month back.
500 pixels on the wide side is the default of "large" thumbnails in newly created albums, and I found out that they create reduced size pics at the moment you download the pictures. 1000 pix is the option, and I selected it when I downloaded my US visit photos.

Sure 1000 pixel width might be "good enough" for most pictures, but then again there are some pictures where people really like/need to see detail. I feel as if Fotki may not be cutting it. How about Photobucket? I use their website sometimes and they seem fairly decent.

8) :D
Carlisle Events has a survey for those that may have suggestions that may make the show better. Tram service to the outlying areas such as ours and judging options come to mind..

Hey Bob, you KNOW I would be in favor of a tram service. LOL

Given the timing of the event each year, I agree with Geezer that a shuttle/tram around the area would be a good idea for us old folks.
